3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark with a fluffy tan head. Unusual blend of aromas and flavors that don’t pull together for me. Certainly interesting, though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle with mR_fr0g at his place on 12 October. Poured a dark ruby colour with a thin beige head. Surprisingly fruity aroma of pineapple and berries with some molasses in the mix. Quite a light mouth feel and flavour considering the style and strength. Dark malts with dried fruits and brown sugar. Finishes with orange peal, cinnamon, yeast and bready malt. Really interesting beer that surprised me on every level. Didn’t look, smell or taste anything like I imagined it would, but was rather nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Monks Cafe. Opaque pour. Shows as a cloudy brown under bright light. Tight foamy beige head. Unusual dark red chocolate fruit. Soured raisins. Pickled figs. Belgium cocoa. Cigarette burned leather jacket. Plum pudding drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Vanilla liquorice. Pomegranate. Black currants. Peppercorns. Silky body. Soft ashy finish. Smooth for the ABV. Better to sip than to swig. Interesting take on a dark red fruit Stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at home. Thanks to Beese Aroma is funky pineapple brett, light caramel roast and liquorice. Opaque black dark caramel pour with a big persistent cream head. Flavour is very mellow roast, light caramel, rasin and dried fruit. There is a really interesting yeat character, slight brett, peppery. Medium body, lively carbonation. Very tasty and interesting. Bit of a surprise this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Proletariat, New York tap ($10): Pours dark murky brown with a beige head. Aroma is slightly sour, chocolatey, peppery, tobacco, sort of like a Belgian strong ale. This is a pretty strange imperial stout, and I do not think that I would call it that at all. Bitter and syrupy. Sure this is complex and there was probably a big idea behind this, but the execution was not exactly to my liking.
