2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, 330ml, a gift from Bill, many thanks. Almost black with brownish head. Quite a sweetish, fruity beer with a smooth caramel note along with blackberry notes. Medium palate, perhaps a little syrupy but really not bad at all. Feeling a little disloyal to Gibraltar by having this at present.

Bottle; poured a dark cola brown with a light brown head. Aroma was sweet and a touch malty, but nothing really going on. Flavor was sweet, watery and fairly bland. Some fruit, caramel and nuts. Forgettable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml. bottle. Pours dark black with a medium-thick, mocha foam that dissipates moderately quick. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, and undertones of citrus. Has a tangy bit of acidity when it first hits the tongue. Taste is lightly sweet with a touch of sourness. Flavors of caramel and chocolate. Body and texture are thin, which (to me) is a bit off-putting for a dark beer. Carbonation is fairly lively and the finish is smooth. Overall I like the look and aroma of the beer, but the body and taste don’t quite match up.
