Decent enough bitter , not as creamy as many black sheep , better hop balance , a good glugging beer.

Overall it's not too shabby. Good malts and hoppiness, albeit a bit thin. Nice ESB-like slipperiness.

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff des-13: storboblet skum. God esb-smak med ristet brød, fin bitterhet og lang ettersmak. Ikke spesielt fruktig, men lettdrikkelig uten at jeg velter over på ryggen.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 13. Clear reddish brown with an inch of light beige head that struggles to hang around. Aroma of toast and stewed fruit. Taste is sweet and fruity - prunes, banana - with a firm coffee-ish roasted note that militates against t’cloy. Finish is bitter and a bit acrid. Pretty good, but the boldness of the roasted note verges on harsh.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from one of supermarkets. Poured a clear dark brown with a broken off white head. The aroma is dry malt with a little yeast. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth hop liqourice bitter palate and a short bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Super a refreshing. A beer for all seasons.

Not bad. Kinda coppery to me with a weak nose. Good for some points in a beer club I guess.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
November 5, 2013 - bottle from Wine and Cheese. Bottled as Monty Python’s Holy Grail Black Knight’s Reserve. Clear light brown pour with some head. Aroma was roasted malt, toffee and fruit. Taste was roasted malt, some chocolate, toffee, fruit and mild hops. Medium bodied and relatively smooth. Fantastic movie and a solid brew. Any movie that has a quote of "I fart in your general direction" is a winner.
