500ml bottle. Pours deep brown with moderate head. Malty and slightly zesty aroma. Rich malt flavour with moderate bitterness, some spice and toast. Light smokiness but not too heavy. Pretty enjoyable.

Subtle caramel aroma. Very dark brown but not black. Slightly fizzy. Quote a chocolatey taste. Fizzy on the tongue.

Bottle. Poured into the 50cl Leffe goblet .. Good ass brown looking beer with robust ass cream. Smells skunky ,so fuck wasting my time talking about it . On the palate everything is dictated to by pasteurised vibes. Malt tang giving brown bread . caramel ,some dried fruit . Kida earty hops and wheat . A bit of roasted malt giving chocolate bitterness .some good texture but skunky vibes hold this back.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from a local Tesco store. Lasting, frothy beige head leaving spotty lacing to the glassware. Clear dark brown body colour. Malt driven aromas, mid-sweet. Dark malty flavours, hints of liquorice, caramel, and ash. Mild roasted bitterness to a prolonged ending. Fine bodied. Nice, a bit unvaried though (hotel room at Leeds University Campus 08.07.2014).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramel and chocolate aroma, very roasty. Foam only lasts for about a minute, it’s completely gone afterwards without any lacing whatsoever.
Long lasting bitterness, medium body. Malty, with a very subtle hint of hops. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it to a friend, but it’s not a bad brew.
