3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Craft Beer Co - Islington on 17th November 2012. Deep ruby with creamy coloured head and lacing especially at first. Rich fruity roasty aroma with coffee. Intense coffee flavours and roastiness in-mouth. Rich coffee and fruitiness meet in a pleasant finish, on a slightly grainy texture and medium body. Lovely beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home split with Sarah. Picked up from Brewdog online. Opaque black coloured pour with a medium loose tan head. Aroma is spicy veg coffee bean and slightly ashy roast and nutty praline. Flavour is dry roasted barley with nice fresh raw coffee bean, little bit of spicy. Palate is medium light and chalky on the tongue. Bit of dark choc lingers with some. Well brewed with no noticeable flaws, could do with some more body perhaps.
