On tap at the BeerTemple. Dark black pour with lacy tan head. Aroma is chocolaty, roasty, nice piney hop, light licorice. Taste is bitter, roasty and piney, lingering dark chocolate flavor. Palate is medium bodied with light-med carbonation. Nice.

PhillyCraft (4542) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2012
My favorite beer of the few I tried from Buxton. Black pour with medium tan head. Aromas of resinous hops, light roast, and chalk, Taste is citrus fuely hops, pine resin, sweet malts, and some grain spice. Finished excellent with a full assortment of flavors left behind. Very long finish.

Bottle from Stewarts Wine Company. Deep black colour with a tan head. Quite malty with a solid dose of hops. Not bad and hides the alcohol well.

erickok (4469) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2012
Dark brown body, nice tan head. Rich mix if chocolate and pecan with pine and spruce hops. Smooth body with just enough carbonation. Solid amount of bitterness without being so overpowering. Great brew. (50cl bottle)

Beersiveknown (4409) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JAN 14, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2013 Toffee orange and Terry’s chocolate orange up front on this impenetrable dark ruby-brown beer. Good sized fluffy beige head forms. Gentle carbonation and a world of flavour. Up front we get a hint of freshly ground coffee, followed swiftly by pine resin and sweet toffee malt. Then the citrus comes along to freshen the palate and finishes with a hint of earthy malt. Some chocolate, lots of hop bitterness. Its particularly drinkable for its ABV and bests the original. I’m glad I have 500ml as 330ml wouldn’t be enough. Lovely. This is up there with Axe-edge and SPA as my top Buxton brews. Edited 2/8/12 score revised up to 4.8 from 4.6 keg at barley mow, bristol
Unable to find fault, spot on tropical aroma, nary a hint of black malt, just full on fruit punch, no sign of the booze either, perfect carbonation and palate, fab 5/5 Edited 8/5/13 score up from 4.8 to 5

TimE (4347) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 24, 2015
Very dark brown color with light brown head. Very hoppy nose with tons of citrus notes under pinned by roasted malts. Medium full body, tons of cotton candy, citrus notes with excellent roasted malt character. Sharp malt and hop character. Lingering roasted malt finish. Excellent example of the style, but doesn’t make top three for me.
