3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A dark brown to black beer topped by a dense, tan head. The aroma has a faint chili touch, with licorice, roasted malts, alcohol, coffee notes, some soy sauce and some caramel sauce. It’s lighlty chili hot on the palate, pretty sweet, full-bodied yet almost watery, and with a soft carbonation. Caramel sauce, roasted malts, soy sauce notes and some coffee in the flavor, some chili. Lasting finish. Pretty nice this one, with some improvement potential. 140608

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Black color, high carbonation but head vanishes quickly. Sharp roasty aroma with coffee, charcoal, dryed chili and chocolate. Burnt flavor with dryed chili, coffee, cocoa and charcoal with hint of raisins. Somewhat stingy mouthfeel. Dominated by dark roast coffee and chili, not a best combination. Luckily chili is not just burning, there is some nice chili taste also.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy dark brown with small tan head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and dried fruit. Bitter onset, quickly replaced by malty and caramel notes. Massive attack of alcohol, both in the aroma and in the flavour. Dryish finish. Not bad but the ABV is too high.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 10%. Roasted aroma, yeast, coffee, late liquorice note. Black colour. OK dark brown head. The flavour is boozy and hot at first. Then it is roasted, a bit yeasty with even more chili. Jam finish. Distinct burning chili, perhaps not too much, but just about there. 10% ABV is not needed here.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Bruce’s. MASSIVE GUSHER. We lost >90% of the bottle. You’ve been warned. The pour’s deep brown with a tiny head. The nose is chili-spiked chocolate, roast grain, syrup. Earthy compost. The taste is burnt brownies, chocolate, roast grain. Medium body, active carbonation. Overall, OK.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at Bruce’s. This b@st#rd gushed all over me! The tiny amount left poured murky opaque brown. The nose is tangy, vegetal, green chilli and malt vinegar. The taste is caramel, roasted malt, chilli, increasing spice, chocolate, vanilla and curry notes with a dry, lightly spicy finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Tastes not bad actually, but score reduced due to the cost of my dry-cleaning bill.

21st May 2013
’Paul takes a brown shower’ tasting at Bruce’s pad. Explosive beer that covered Paul in brown sticky beer! What little that wasleft was opaque dark brown with a little pale tan head. Smooth dark malts, rich. Bitter chocolate. Touch of paper. A little chilli heat. Dry finish. Not bad - but points lost for the dreadful mess it made!
