fiulijn (14533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
The color is black, deep, with middle sized beige creamy head. Mild aroma, fresh, roasted malts and a citrusy touch; later, some hop sweat appears. Smooth mouthfeel, with good body presence; the roasted malt flavor is not excessive, elegant, helped by a light sweetness in this; quite strong bitterness, well balanced, with some hop oils, mild hop resins, but less hop character than may be expected.
Overall, it provides a feeling of freshness; good.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Keg at Tap East, London. Pours black with a thick, lasting, tight creamy tan cap. Nice, sturdy dark roasted malts in the nose with punches of burnt pine and grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor, pretty smooth, good roasty malts, some juicy grapefruit, nips of coconut, dark sugars. Medium bodied with fine, gentle carbonation. Moderate piney resins to finish, more well-roasted malts, light dirt, dark sugars, restrained burnt grass bitterness, some background cocoa. Great balance overall. Really smooth and cohesive.

Tap sample. Poured black color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good complex beer.

Keg North Bar Leeds 22/01/13. A black beer with a little grey head. Really wuite weird. Seems totally Sorachi dominant. Weird mushroom notes. Good bitterness. Intriguing but certainly odd in its flavour profile and stylistically out there. i did enjoy this but woah!
