3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
75cl Bottle at WWT III. Deep dark brown colour with a red hue, light-beige head. Aroma of unripe fruits, some green stuff, roasted malts. Flavour is roasted malts, light fruity, can’t really tell if this is passion fruit though, veggies, a bit ashy, bitter finish. Light-bodied. Didn’t really like this.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark colour with a light tan head. Noses a bit of ash and dried citrus fruits/hops. Full bodied with slick light watery texture, developing sweet passion, mango and peach notes on the palate. Notes of sourness - a really good beer! Finish is soft and coherently fading.

Bottle at WWT3. Poured a dark reddish brown with a thin tan head and loads of broken lace. The aroma is dry earthy and fruity. The flavour is medium bitter with lots of roasted malt, liqourice and resin in the complex but smooth palate. A super beer from CC.

Tasting at WWT lll. Smell of berries and passion fruits. Nice but a bit strange. Taste is a bit light and ends in the typical porter taste.
