3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (500ml?). Poured deep clear mahogany with a large light reddish-brown foamy head. Very nice aroma of mildly spicy yeast, light roast caramel malt, pungent hops, slightly woody, musty and a hint of carbonized peach skin. Taste - really interesting, chalky, peach pit bitterness, almost a old porter character to it - very dry - the fruit and malt character is very much in abeyance, although it certainly tastes yeasty and very musty. Mouthfeel is like thick cloth, or banana pith, still and dry, with a long, chalky nominally sweet finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
10/24/11. 16.9oz bottle labeled as Monty Python’s Holy Grail Black Knight’s Reserve. Brown/red pour with a nice thick, creamy tan head that sticks and laces a teensy bit. Weird aroma od chalk, burnt bread, metal, and caramel apples. Sweet caramel entry with a burnt toast flavor followed by lingering chalk and a huge metal kick. Blech.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Huge offwhite fine-laced head over dark red body. Faint, sweet, roasty aroma with hop notes. Deep, sweet, harmonic taste of roasty malts with red fruit character and bitter, tarry aftertaste with sweet chocolatey taste lingering. Complex and interesting. This is a great beer!
