Bottle from ’Jacks’ Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon, consumed at home Monday 26th May 2014 Pours very, very dark brown in fact more mahogany like, its v.dark, light filmy off-white head atop. Bit cold (my fault), really nutty, chocolatey but smooth. In fact a bit like a chocolate sponge cake. This is also quite soft in mouth, the carbonation is nice. Good A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.4 .

Thick foamy beige brownish head. Fresh aromas. Dark black body with strong roast taste. The chestnut incorporates well on a sweet balance despite residual acidity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Idiosynkrasie (3574) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2013
500ml bottle. Cloudy red glowing mahagony colour with average, firm, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Toasted malt aroma with a nuttily touch, hints of toffee, slightly grassy and herbal hoppy overtones. Taste is minimally sweet malty with a nuttily touch, hints of toffee, dry hoppy overtones; a nice taste of roasted hazelnut remains in the finish. Resembles concerning colour, malt body, hopping and resulting taste more a Brown Ale than a Porter.
