Consumed at ’t Arendsnest, Amsterdam, May 2006
Dark as a stout (though sampled in low light) with a tall, light tan head. Some smoked malt (light) and licorice scents. Light texture, lacking any thickness. Light caramel, maple malt flavors, grainy almost. Very little hop presence, but has some decent cherry chocolate chewy flavors in the finish.

A Mes rate:
Strange hint of vanilla and orange in the flavour. Otherwise pretty much as you would expect. Chunky and slightly hoppy too. Reasonable long finish.

Bottle picked up from Morrisons Aylesbury. Enjoyed this last night 05-04-06. Dark ruby coloured beer, quite sweet but some dried fruit flavours, this isn’t bad but I had expected better.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of figs in syrup and candy suger with roasted malts. Taste is also quite sweet, medium bodied, fruity but a bittering from the hops maybe takes something away from this being great. Long finish and very drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Very dark chestnut colour. Very small head. Disappointing flavour. Disappointingly thin mouthfeel. Tastes like it is brewed on sugar. Roasted flavour and some sourness/acidity. Low bitterness.

Black and poured wth a big head that soon evaporated. Plenty of body but with some acidity that put me off a bit.Bought from Morrisons-probably the most interesting beer they have ever stocked.
