BB 16.11.2014, 0,5L bottle. Pours clear very dark amber, almost black with nice light tan head. The head stays. Aroma: sourness, dryness, hints of chocolate, caramel. Taste: malt, burnt coffee, dark chocolate, sourness in the background, maybe even some spices. Burnt coffee bitter finish. It is very creamy. Overall: hides 4% ABV really well, but otherwise just good, but not great.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sour coffee aroma with hoppy bitterness coming through, pleasant. Big thick foamy beige head. Surprisingly hoppy for a mild, lends a good character to the brew. Slightly grapefruity. Can’t really get the coffee / dark fruit / caramel but still nice. Good texture.

17th December 2013
Clear dark red - amber beer. Tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is light, crisp and a little dry. Super light malts, minerals. Vague dark fruits. Dry finish. Mmm it’s all a bit bland and non-descript. I expect more of this brewery now.

Taste has gentle roasted barley notes, some husk, a touch of milk chocolate, cautious hints of dried dark fruit, integrated bitter hop notes. Good.

Big stable lasting head with brown color, bit of roasted malt aroma. Medium bitterness in taste. Even though I am a fan of stronger dark ales this one was a pleasant experience.
