2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from M&S Stratford and drunk at home. Black dark ruby colour lasting tan head. Some maltiness a little oxidised. OK dark beer with a bit too much oxidised bovril. Not that keen on this to be honest. Not much hop, not much condition. Not a great dark beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium amber-brown, quite caramelly on the nose. Taste is similar with a funny phenolic note. Sweet and I’m not sure I’d take this over Indio.
