FatPhil (9344) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2014
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Black, a bit watery loose head. Soft sweet roast aroma. Some sharpness - aggressive hops. Simple malts, not fermented enough, mashy and a bit messy. Hops decent, but not shining. Meh. A slightly hop-forward dark beer, that’s all.

Cask conditioned handpump Wenlock Arms London 06/09/13. A black beer with an off-white bubbly head. Slightly roasty in the nose but it’s mostly hops. Big grapefruity stuff with hints of coffee in the mouth. Lovely flavours. Very nice indeed. Quality.

Dark mahogony brown with a moderate light beige covering that thins to a pond/swirl. Nose is pine, earthy hops, bitter tropicals, cocoa powder. Taste comprises earthy cocoa, light roast, pine resin, bitter grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, grassy skunky hop closure. Solid enough CDA.

Had this in bottle at Sytches Campsite, Much Wenlock, Shropshire, Thursday 21st August 2014 Pours more a very dark very brown as opposed to black, there is a good clarity. Roasted malts but smooth leading into a pleasant hoppiness. Tangy with a slender zippiness. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4
