Leighton (10868) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle shared at chriso’s May 2014 tasting - London. Pours clear, dark brown with a creamy, light beige head. The nose has tangy dark malts, bread and pine. Light sweet flavor, astringent and rubbery, with some charred wood accents. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Bitter char on the finish, and little else. Shabby.

Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Lightly hazy deep amber beer, big pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and light, superfine carbonation. Mild dark malts with a mild tang, whispers of coffee and dark chocolate. Mildly tangy dried fruits. Even a little noble hop bitterness. Light semi dry finish. Has survived fairly well.

minutemat (1572) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle @ Chriso May 14 tasting. Pours dark brown, fruit cake, dark malts, a few drops of citrus, acidic tart tang, fizzy.. I sense this is not at its best.

Scopey (6726) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle at Chriso. It pours dark brown with a thick tan head. The nose is bitter-sweet, toast, roasted malt, earth, caramel, treacle and brown bread. The taste is rich, toasty, bitter, earth, spice, alcohol, sour/tart aspect, meatiness, acidic and resin with a dry, tart finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A bit tart and acidic unfortunately....

The head is good, the body black-red. It smells intensive flowery, darkmalty, strong. The taste is hopintesive, a bit darkmalty, flowery, coffee-bitter, great and interesting.

fiulijn (14403) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle from the De Molen shop, bottled 26 Apr 2013
Black color with medium sized head. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee, a bit dusty. Dry mouthfeel with very strong roasted malt character, quite ashy and burnt, with the bitterness deriving also from it, and some hop oils in the end.
The Saaz is not evident; overall it’s unbalanced.

klajmajk (102) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 25, 2013
Brown color with brown almost stout like head. Nicely hoppy to my taste a bit too acidic. But in result an OK beer
