Tk2 -Tk7 detail to follow ... but WOW. we had some from a bottle at RBESG ... it was so good we asked Alex to Buy some ... he quoted a insalyh low price ... so i got 3 of them and then some one picked up a keg and says at the price this is a bargain ... So alex says to throw the keg onto the bus ... i assume were going to tap it up and have some in 4:20 but oh no... its cracked open on the Bus and The beer Hand pulled by Menno... by dipping a cup in and pulling it out ... Man this is a World Class beer and i drunk Way too much of it ... This is clearly in my top 5 ... 4.7

Tk8 at home ... deep black ...thin lacing .... deep roast malt ... light bitter ... little coffee ... little nutty nose ... big chocolate ... light coffee ... solid roast ... big beer... very nice but its not quite the Hand pulled version :-)

deep black ... deep chocolate roast nose... dark roast ... sweet malts ... toffee roast ... chocolate ... rich and complex ... woody oaky ... delightful ... 4.5
