humlelala (1298) - DENMARK - JUN 19, 2014
(33 cl bottle from Bradley’s off-license, Cork; BBD: August 2015) Pours dark brown with lasting tan head and some lace. Aroma is subtle toasted malt. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and an ascorbic finish. Flavour is toasted malt, dark and a little ascorbicity. Not terribly exciting for the style.

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Bottle. Nearly black with good tan head. Big coffee and chocolate nose, light vanilla pod, touch of something ashy in there too. Luxurious chocolate and roasted malt in the taste - lots of dark burnt coffee grounds too. Light fruitiness and a hint of sweet vanilla. Medium/full bodied, pretty heavy on the carb. Lingering fruits and chocolate, with light smoke finishing. Really solid again from BPBP.
