1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very dark with the slightest of reddish-brown glow. Has a poor dirty treacle aroma, and little flavour to make amends.

1.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Kujawak Polish Shop (Glasgow, £1.15 for 400ml):
Roasted malts and a sugary sweetness make up most of the aroma on with this one. There is some caramel and more burnt sugar to round this off.
Dark brown with a thin, half centimetre head that is tan coloured and bubbly looking.
Tonnes of sugar hitting you straight away followed by some caramel and a disgusting malt flavour. There is a sort of cola like taste too but this one was all over the place and had a terrible taste, quite possible the worst tasting beer I have ever tried.
Light, incredibly sweet and sticky on the palate. Carbonation is very weak and the beer has the feel of a flat soft drink.
Truly terrible, avoid this at all costs like I should have done.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Deep black colour with steady head. Nose of an cold ashtray. Taste of cigarettes (I’m a non-smoker), malt and bitter hops. Very disgusting.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Third karmi in two days. And the third time we were in the near of puking. Crazy stuff, even as this one is miles away from their coffee and framboise one.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Dark beer, sweet malt aroma. Taste is of bonfire toffee, reminds me of homebrew syrup. Could only manage half the bottle before I chucked it away. Started off drinkable then became sickly. Not good.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ "tasting". Aroma is hoppy unfermented wort. Flavour is malty unfermented wort with faint carbonation. Very good if you like drinking unfermented wort.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Syrup, bread and unfinished yeast... absurdly sweet with a burned sugar thing going on that actually tastes like alcohol!? Thin. Highly carbonated. Obviously a novelty.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle, thanks (?) Hirigalzkar.
Looks like coke when poured, no head.
Aroma of bread sirup and a hint of tarr pastiles.
Sweet taste of sirup, burnt sugar, and a hint of rye.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
400ml bottle, 08/06/12. Deep ruby appearing pitch with a slim off white collar. Rust, dark toasted bread, baked beans, burnt herby sausages aroma. Not bad. Can’t really say the same of the flavour; sweet and saccharined with a trace of roast suggesting coffee butter cream; that typical baked beans on wholemeal, honeyed no alcohol character.
