Bottled. Pretty red color. Nose of caramel, earthy hops, cherry. Quite average red ale. Unexciting and not quite together yet.

Bottle, pours like coca cola. Low fizz. Minimal head. Smells like dusty malts, and quite metallic. Taste is full bodied, creamy, with loads of bitter malts, coffee. I quite liked it.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Re-rated from a fresh bottle. Massive bitter hops, very zingy and hitting the spot a lot more than last time! Crazy good.
330ml bottle from Borough Wines, Hackney. Pours Mahogany brown, alcoholic liquored nose, extremely bitter with a little zest but shying away from any sweetness. Modest carbonation. Probably a little too bitter for me.
