3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe, King’s Lynn
Brewed March 2012; bb November 2015; bottle 164/1600
Black color, with medium sized brown head, creamy, but reducing quite quickly. The aroma is very mild, there is some cardboard, roasted malt, tar. Full bodied, yet with a lean mouthfeel; quite good flavor of roasted malts and chocolate, without exceeding on the burnt side, but also with a moderate liquorice character; correct bitterness, and nice alcohol warmth.
Good beer, not exceptional.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Leighton for this bottle! Black bodied, with a creamy, very fine, tan head. Cookies, leather, some chocolate and butterscotch. Bit disappointing. Very smooth soft body, warming alcohol clearly present. Sweet, round taste with a light hop sharpness. Not as thick or rich as modern imperial stouts often are at this abv. Tasty, but not outstanding or standing out. (33cl bottle)
