3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours dark brown with a thick, rich beige foam head. Aroma holds a healthy dose of roasted malts, along with some sweet cocoa, burnt wood, grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor, lots of charred wood, some licorice, burnt grass, bitter earth, some dark sugars. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with some decent resins, heavy roasted malts, lots of charred wood, almost abrasive burnt grass, some ripe citrus, especially grapefruit. There are some interesting characteristics in here, but the bitterness also comes across a touch harsh in the end, and the citrusy fruits seem a bit unrealised. Still decent overall, but not everything it could be.
