3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

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.
