2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (purchased at the brewery): Deep amber coloured, huge fluffy off-white head, that diminishes slowly; dark-malty nose, hints of liquorice and a touch of sourish fruitiness; light dry and bitter with some acidity in the background; short, a bit coffeeish-bitter finish. Not a great one........

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle) Clear, darkest amber colour with a mid-sized foamy beige head. Sweet, slightly roasty malty aroma with caramel, liquorice, hoppy hints and a faint sourish touch. Bitter flavour, dark malty, moderately roasted taste with caramel on a herbal hoppy background; dry and bitter, slightly sour, malty finish with a restrained hoppiness. This one has somewhat character but is also not overwhelming.
