3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This nice beer is almost black and it’s hasn’t got much head to boast about. Both aroma and flavour has notes of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, and there is a nice and dry bitterness in the finish. It’s not a thick beer like a stout, but still pretty thick for a dark ale. I really like this one, truly nice...

One-third pint ale dispensed on gravity at GBBF 09. Nice and clean, devil-black body. Smell of dark fruits and mild roasted malts. Jam-like flavour with fruitcakes and prunes supported by sweet, black malts. Well rounded aftertaste with rather low impact of alcohol on the palate (Earls Court, 07.08.2009).

Bottled. A dark brown beer with a purple hue and a small tan coloured head. The aroma has notes of plums and sweet caramel together with a little licquorice. The taste has more dark fruits together with a little chocolate malt and a feel of oil or petrol. A nice tasty fruity, quite full-bodied beer

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very dark beer with a rich biscuit malt body along with smokey toffee notes - one for bonfire night perhaps. There is also a slightly vinous character. This is a little thin in the mouthfeel but still pleasant.
