3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask. Muddy dark brown pour with a lacy tan head. The aroma is initially quite savoury and a little bit licoricey. Full bodied with even more licorice flavour. There’s enough licorice o actually lend it that odd sort of cooling/savoury sensation that you get when you eat Dutch licorice. A fairly pronounced alcoholic flavour along with a little bit of light clove and some pepper. A fairly assertive bitterness as well. Okay - but it doesn’t really hit the right marks for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at C’est What Fall Festival of Small Breweries, Sept. 14. Pours a deep murky brown with no head. Mild aroma of dark malt, light hops, alcohol and a hint of chocolate. Slightly watery flavour is malty and hoppy with a boozy finish. Average bodied. Disappointing, I expected better. (Maybe like jercraigs says, it wasn’t ready yet)
