3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle (Bacchanalia, Cambridge)
Lovely soft sweet smoky aroma, some smoked sausage in it. Smooth and full in the mouth, pleasant carbonation. Lovely full roasty body. Smokiness very nice, but I do also see the band-haid phenolic aspect too. Really no sign of 7% at all, superbly drinkable. It could easily be 4.5%. Like the tarry finnish, and though it may be slightly acidic, all I want to do is to drink more of this beer.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a dark brown colour with a little light at the edges. There is a thin tan head with some broken lace. The aroma is mildly smoky with some malt. The flavour is medium bitter, with liqourice, roasted malt and chocolate. The palate is rather smooth and the bitterness lingers for a while in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear dark brown with spotted lacing and a dissipating small tan creamy head. Aroma is peaty smoke, ripe dark fruit, pine, red apple, toffee, roasted malt, barnyard, iodine, rye’ish spice, leather and unripe banana. Taste is medium sweet and bitter. Body is medium+, texture is soft/creamy, carbonation is near flat. Finishes initially sweet malty with smoke but ends up being dry with the hops coming through in the far finish. Great balance, body and texture. The smoke never overpowers the other aromas. Lovely stuff.
