3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours black. Tan head. No lacing. Little bit of malt. Little metallic. Some sugar and some roasted barley. A sweet/sour taste that contradicts itself constantly.
Not bad. A mo’ bitter flavor. More from the roasted grains than anything else. Sweet front with a bitter back. Almost like an almond coffee. No too bad. I would definitely pick up more.
If it weren’t for the 5 pound price tag.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled in July 2010. Black. Low carbonation with frothy ring to the head. Smells a little of molasses, a little of charcoal and a little of blackjack sweets. Roasted flavours dominate to start followed by a slight sourness and some alcoholic liquorish burn. Finish is roasted malt. Hopping rate seems low with some leafy hop flavour hiding in the background. Cracking little beer.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. The smell is weak, roasty, malts, and not too much. The look is brown to black, not much head. The taste is sort of sweet, fruits, and malts.

Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Pitch dark with faint head. Salty and malty nose. Texture is smooth and syrupy. Taste like a stout, gets a bit saltier and warms up. Not bad at all. I was fearing for worse.
