2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dumpfer, deutlich bitterer Antrunk mit allerlei Gewürzen und Gemüsenoten. Nicht unbedingt harmonisch, schokoladig malzig, dunkler werdend. Zum Ende passen die Aromen besser zusammen, die hopfige Bitterkeit ist allgegenwärtig. 9/7/7/9/9/8

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 330ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Chestnut with cream head. Heady aroma of spices, leading to rather a sweetish, honeyed, smooth malty beer with a lavish dose of ginger. There is a chocolate element but this is smooth and milky. Not a blockbuster but reasonably decent.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Black with a light brown head. Aroma is first and foremost loads of ginger with roasted malt also shining through. Flavor is rather sweet and moderate bitter. The finish is dry and bitter. The ginger is waaay overdone and that is never a good thing in a beer. 171010

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours a dark, almost clear ruby-brown with a thick, beige head. Cinnamon and some cocoa malts in the nose. Lots of cinnamon and chocolate in the flavor, with some modest chalk, herb and earth bitters. Medium in body with smooth carbonation. Could do with a bit more sweetness. Finishes with yet more raw cinnamon powder and light malts. Very faint hops in the throat. Very nice beer overall.
