caesar (6419) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle from Firma Bier, large sample. Dark color, medium frothy head. Aroma of roasted malts, bit laurel, slight licorice, blackcurrant, dark fruit. Feels really ’british’. Soft velvety mouthfeel, earthy hops. Malty bitterness in taste, laurel, roast. Quite dry. Good. Would love to see this from cask in a pub.

sound67 (604) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2015
[Scottish Real Ale Festival, Edinburgh, 2015] - Fyne Ales Sublime Stout, 6.8% (Stout). Dark brown with red reflexes. Small fluffy beige head. Dark chocolate, licorice, sour coffee beans and a wee bit of floral notes on the nose. Medium to full body, oily minimal carbonation. Gingerbread, dark fruits and roasted malts at the start. More bitter towards the middle due said roasted malts, but there is still a red fruit note in the background. Some aniseed, too. Finish is roasted malts, mostly, with a wee vanilla note softening the experience. Bitter coffee in the aftertaste, soft sweet note accompanying.
