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.

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

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.
