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.
