3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Roasty, light chocolate aroma. Dark brown, with a quickly dissipating head. Light bodied, roasty/chocolate/slight hop bitter upfront with a long chocolate aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Suprisingly refreshing for a beer this roasty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear deep brown/red with a short lived off-white head. Nose of molasses, traces of fruit bread, and booze. Body is a tad thin and flat. Notes of strawberry, anice, and citrus peel, sitting on top of heavy roasted crystal/biscuity malts. Nutty. Bitter. It’s peculiar. Mineral and meat broth finish. I wouldn’t have pegged this as an old ale, more like a thin porter.

Pour is barely black with a small tan cap. Nose is berry jam, burnt toast, liquorice. Toastiness comes out even more in the flavour. Toasted grain bitterness goes nicely with the fruitiness. A little thin but still pretty tasty - like Emma Stone in Birdman.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours into the glass like a cross between a porter & soda fountain cola. Foam starts with a nice thick cap that collapses quicker than the English team in the World Cup. The label is right: there’s a significant black currant presence in the flavour, almost like you swirled a tea spoon of unsweetened preserves in the glass. Finish is a bit messy. Carbonation is a little on the biting side. Pretty damn enjoyable. Thanks Mrs Tiki for picking this up for me from the liqour store. It’ll help take the edge off.
