2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Surprised and a little let down to see this one pasteurised, filtered and bottled in clear bottles. Oddly it poured quite still, the cap come off with little more sound than the crimping of metal upon glass. A translucent midnight brown with a thinning cap of tan that took some rousing. There is a strong waft of kelp amongst notes of cocoa, dusty earth, stewed plums and chocolate. Mostly dry, chalky palate, good body and very minimal carbonation. A little vanilla and chocolate icecream up front before some smoky burnt wood and heavily toasted grains. Burnt stonefruit in back and just a hint of damp bitter weeds. Finish is all chocolate malts and more ashen wood. Fairly simple stuff. More sessionable than the ABV suggests giving me the impression it could pull off more at a lower alcohol content.
