Grumbo (1518) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle from Beautiful Beers in Bury St Edmunds and the top-rated beer at the EU themed 2nd Ipswich bottle share. Pours a deep brown with a large off-white head. Beautiful malty aroma, with chocolate, and roasted coffee. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Full bodied, with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Very good.

Stuu666 (10877) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours black, nose is toffee, caramel, vanilla, malty, taste is sweet, biscuity, dry, quite hot. Just too boozy and sweet for me.

mR_fr0g (9538) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cotteridge convention, 24/01/2015. Thanks to whomever brought it along. Aroma is decent nutty choc, praline, little veg. Not much hop on the nose. Clear mahogany brown coloured pour with a thin creamy head. Flavour is composed of nutty, harsh solvent, stale grains, astingent dark malts. Palate is semi-sweet, moderate carbonation. . Not a huge fan.

Temptation (257) - - MAY 26, 2015
Despite its bland looking -almost no head, like a cola without gas- this beer reveals itself overwhelming, like a fist on the jaw: whisky, coffee, rhum, honey...and whisky again. Boozy, alcohol is just present in your head, not in your mouth. Dangerous, very dangerous. Liked a lot.

The_Osprey (6607) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle share at Cotteridge Wines. Dark brown, small ring of off-white head. Aroma is paint, pine, treacle, alcohol. Body is medium to light, foamy, low carbonation. Taste is just a big hit of alcohol up front, ’cold’ booziness, tangy, vodka, some sweet malts but nothing to cover the 13%. Woah.
