2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours deep ruby/dark brown with a huge beige quickly dissipating head leaving lots of lacings. Aroma is flowery, some roasted notes, coffee. Taste is bitter up-front with grass, flowers, some malty tones before ending quite lingering bitter. Light to medium body, medium carbo, sharp bubbles. It says 23 IBU but it feels like it was way more. The bitterness probably comes through this much due to the fairly weak body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep red-brown color, thick beige head. Dried fruit nose, brown sugar, roasted malt, coffee. Sweet taste, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, metallic notes, bitter finish. Big aromas and taste considering the low abv, but the taste fades quickly. Thin body, lively carbonation.

Cask in the Euston Tap. Dark brown with reddish depths, white foam. Surprisingly bitter, agree it’s more like a low abv black ipa than anything else. Or you could just call it a dark session beer, very bitter, both hops and a bit of malts, with herbal nettle and a bit of aniseed. Moreish. Doesn’t quite sit together but went down well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 12/07/14. A dark ruby coloured beer with a big whitish head. A really hoppy and bitter mild. Not getting chocolate, coffee, caramel or spice as per the comm description. Tasty for sure and blind this could be mistaken for a BIPA. I really liked it. An enjoyable beer whatever it is.
