Bottled, 330ml from Ikea, Milton Keynes, Bucks. Chestnut with off white head. Sweet, malty beer quite watery in character, there is a little roastiness apparent, but thin, maybe a hint of coffee. Nothing special about this though.

Bottle: Thanks Edwin:
Medium to bigger sized, vast, thick, fluffy and slowly changing ashy beige head on top of a
Smell lots of prunes, some raisin, some barleys, bit thin/watery(?), dough and a sprinkle of roasted chalky wood.
Taste is a strange mix of prunes, ash, cookies, low to lightly medium bitter, bread, sweat, hint of caramel, sprinkles of roast and spices.
Aftertaste is malty, prunes, light ashy and caramel and a very light bitterness.
Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a thin light creamy body at first and then the thinness slowly fades.
Nice beer, nothing great and deep but decent and pretty well balanced with some strange things in the taste but again it’s not bad.
