UPDATED: APR 5, 2011 On tap at White Horse, Parsons Green (Jan 25). Colour is cloudy jet black with thin tan head. Nose; malty, dark fruits and subtle floral from the Nelson Sauvin. Taste; very malty, toffee, caramel sweetness, smoky, dark fruits, bubblegum, syrupy mouth-feel, obvious alcohol. It’s about as subtle as a slap in the face with a wet fish. I think some additional aging will bring together these flavours more harmoniously. 31 March 2011 On tap at the Rake, now at 10%. Is this even the same beer? It pours dark amber with a foamy beige head. The nose is toast, aniseed, caramel, charcoal and there is distinct lack on Nelson Sauvin hops. The taste is caramel, dark chocolate, coffee, smoke, bread, date, raisin, bubblegum, burnt sugar, some soy sauce, sesame seeds, charcoal and well hidden alcohol, with a long burnt-bitter finish. Its complex and has much of the same flavours as the first batch, but is now much better balanced. I enjoyed it so much I had another (courtesy of Tom).

Cloudy brown beer, good light tan head. Light softish palate. Sweet malt with an obvious aniseed alcohol. Some sugary sweetness comes through at the end. A whisper of smoke from the Laphroig malt possibly. Any Nelson Sauvin is pretty surpressed. A mad beer, love the concept but the end result is a bit clunky. I would love to age one of these!

Couple of half pints at the Rake. Abv now reported as 10%? Watered down? A couple of months have done this beer a lot of good. Clear dark brown beer, short lived pale tan head. Soft palate. Mild smoke from the Laphroig malt is immediately obvious bit delivered in a nice soft creamy way. Lots going on here, a little aniseed, whisper of sherbet fruit. Sweet caramel with a trace of bubblegum. Something like cornflakes makes a brief appearance in the mid. Still finding new things before the beer finished. But again no obvious Nelson. Still a mad beer but a much better tasting one now!

6 Sweet puddingy aroma, a little fruity, anna says peach and mandarin, but for me, more of the actual sticky sweet pudding itself.
3 murky brown, small off-white head
6+ A bit of a mess in the mouth, pulling in lots of different directions, but going nowhere. The thick stodgy pudding has slowed everything else down. And the 12% has been recruited as a heavy-handed bouncer in case you’re tempted to complain. One punch from that and you’re reeling.
3+ Full heavy palate, tingly carbonation enhanced by the hops. Finish has some pleasant chocolate malts, and some dirty earthy undergrowthy hops. And that bouncer thinks you were causing trouble - BANG! fall at the knees of those vapours. Polish potato spirit would have been softer.
14 Very much not my style of beer, lacking all hints of subtlety, And I think I lost 2 teeth fighting the alcohol. But you know, in the end, we ended up in a hug drooling "you’s my best mate". Not up to the lovely hvede standard from 3F, and well short of the glorious porter/stout target I want from BD, but in the end this is not a bad beer. I know there are some crazy thrill-seekers out there who will love this.
