3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Jet black, the merest tint of brown; rapidly diminishing brown head; chocolate malt aroma; high carbonation; spice initially, then bitter chocolate, toasted malt then back to spice again; a little sweet and quite bitter; smooth; the last quarter of this was very good indeed with quite a complex, warming, almost sherry-like finish; I admit to pigging out on a curry before this - I really should try again on a less uncomfortably full stomach.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with a thick, tan, lasting, lacy, frothy head. Smells of liquorish, coffee, roast, sweet malt, red berries, and a light freshness. Medium smooth thin, to oily body. Tastes of sweet berries, balanced against the coffee roast and a bit of ash. A bit thinish and flavourful but needs more roast.
