16.9oz bottle, from Jungle Jim’s in Fairfield. Shared with caterwaul. Bottle says Best before Feb. 2014. Very dark brown color. Thin bubbly khaki head. Good ropes and bits of lace. Nice briny and roasty aroma. Some dark chocolate in the finish. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly soft. Moderate sweet taste, lightly savory / salty. Interesting beer. I dig the seaweed component.

Beautiful dark appearance with a slight head, as well as a pleasant, full, almost chocolate like aroma. A chocolate taste and even a bit of vanilla, definitely one I’m buying again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with HopTsing. Dark brown with decent tan head that dissipated- light lacing. Was a little dubious about trying this, but its not bad. I get chocolate and wine. I think I do get something "salty" but it could be the aroma of the Chicken Vindaloo we cooked for dinner. Only a hint of sweet in the background. Almost borders on astringent. Totally not what I expected and not too bad.

Cask at BBF13. Weak fruity aroma. Black colour, seems cloudy. Stable light brown head. The flavour is sour with a sort of fruity winegum note to it. Surprisingly thin mouthfeel. Tastes OK, but
