3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Mr. Hopper for the 750mL bottle! Poured deep brown with a tall, dark brown head. The aroma picked up lightly-smoked black malts and rye biscuity notes with earth and fruity yeastage around (maple too, if you dig deep).. I like the original a bit more. The flavor found smoked black malts and licorice at the core, with fruity and earthy yeast plus oxidation (or something similar) throughout.. finished dry and very roasty, with too much of a yeast impression and some syrupy alcohol warmth. Heavier-bodied with a lot of carbonation on the palate.. not the best flow.. I didnít quite get it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml from the Rare Beer Club, shared with Prof. M after the Iron Maiden show. Having enjoyed the first release of BM - and thereís a joke to be made about staying kvlt here - the variation was pleasant too. But instead of giving it a floral, estery twang, I felt oddly enough that this version was even more bitter and unrelenting in its way. Yeast among the ashes.
