3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
50 cL bottle. Pours dark brown with a redish glare and a semi creamy off-white head. Light roasted malt aroma with a light coffee-ish note. Flavour is roasted malt and coffee with a light liqourice edge from the hops. Nicely balanced and with just enough sweetness to counter balance the roasted profile. Light coffee-ish finish mixed with liqourice. Dry bitterness in the far finish. Nice one.

The aroma is sweet and malty with notes of hops, yeast, caramel, and berries. The color is a very dark red and it has a beutiful beige head. The flavor is of sweet and roasted malts with notes of chocolate and fruit. It ends on a good bitterness both from the hops and the malt. A very nice stong ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark brown - close to black - with a nice, brownish head. Malty fullness and a dry bitterness - rather marked bitterness actually. Reminds me more of an old fashioned, traditional porter. Odd name - and explanation for it. 140603

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark red / amber color, beautiful head and lace. Very nice aroma: malt, caramel, roasted malt, coffee. Rich mouth feeling, strong caramalt; it turns quickly in a very bitter ale, prelude to a long and strong final. Bitterness is the most evident character, followed by caramel and finally by some hop aroma; would be better if more balanced (less bitter, more hop-aromatic).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2011 Bottle from Asda. Dark reddish brown with lasting tan head roasted malt nose with some chocolate. Nice dry hoppy finish. Really good beer with a certain richness on the aroma that carries on into the palate. 848416 4.0/5.0 Bottle from a colleague for my 40th. Aroma has malt and dark fruits. It’s pasteurised and a little obvious on the alcohol to be honest. Sting comes from the carbontion too.
