2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of roasted malts, biscuit, dark chocolate and some cream. Flavour of roasted malts, biscuit, some rubber, some veggie notes, cream and salty licorice. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and high-ish carbonation. Flavour is a bit off and the amount of carbonation disturbs me.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50 cl bottle.
Pours clear dark mahogany color with a large frothy head. Aroma is a bit sweet with honey and caramel notes, some subtle fruit and hay with hops and faint chocolate. Flavor is somewhat creamy and chocolaty with a salty twist on it, faint coffee notes on the background with a mildly grassy and fruity finish. Medium carbonation, long salty finish. A bit odd but somehow works.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a thick foamy head. Aroma is quite difficult to pick up, but there is light roast. Palate starts dark grains and fruit but quickly transforms into drying bitterness rather than sweetness. Not bad, might go well with a bit of cheese.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
BB 07/04/2014. Poured a semi-translucent garnet red colour with a two finger light beige foamy head that diminished a bit but retained a ring of foam so it laced well. Moderate to high carbonation as seen by medium sized bubbles forming trails. Aroma a nice strong sweet fruity yeast plus a slight roasted malt and with slight chocolate as well. Taste initially sweet toffee followed by a strong roasted malt that gave a somewhat burnt bitter after-taste - the taste starts out a bit flat and sweet but then the charred malt comes through and dominates for some time until the beer warmed. Light body. Smooth, light, strong flavours with a nice subtle smoky finish as the beer warmed. Overall a good dark ale.

Tallahassee, Fl - Killearn Liquors - 500 ml WWI hand grenade shaped bottle. Pours a deep dark brown leading to black with a long lasting medium thick off-white head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma has a nice earthiness to it with some hints of anise seed, a touch of chocolate and coffee. Flavor is full-bodied with lots of bitter bakerís chocolate, some licorice , a touch of figs and some roasted coffee in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice pleasant texture to it. Extremely solid and very flavorful for a 4% ABV beer.

Great bottle and label - potato masher with green gold foil lettering. Very dark, clear, with a fluffy khaki head. At first, thereís a pickled olive smell, but after it breathes, thereís a satisfying roast aroma (soy nut tones). Wow. Very smooth roast. Per the other beers Iíve had from this brewery tonight, this was very balanced for the style, and sessionable. Medium to slightly light body, no clingy coffee finish. Tell ya what, Iím a fan -- good craft beer without being a ham-handed AIPA superhero. Killearn Liquors.

500ml bottle from Oddbins London Bridge drunk at home. Very very dark brown beer with lasting dark beige rocky head. Funny there is a slightly herby edge to the choccy mild feel. The beer is good. A really good dark beer. Drunk as England won the Ashes at Durham on 12 August 2013. What an evening. Broad was amazing. Good beer too.
