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 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.

(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).

Bottle at home in London. Pours clear garnet with a fluffy, off-white foam head. Toasted malt aroma with hints of chocolate and leaves. Flavor is quite nice, medium sweet, coffee ice cream, light mocha, leafy bitterness, faint toffee and toasted sugar. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with mild bitterness, more coffee ice cream character, faint ripe bananas, light dirt and fallen leaves. A very serviceable English strong ale. Not bad.
