minutemat (2496) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
75cl 2012 bottle @ 12th Shrewsbury Bottle Share, April 15, courtesy of blackhaddock. Pours a murky dark brown with minimal tan head. Oak-aged Old Ale in aroma and taste, smooth dark flavours on the mellow side of rich with caramelised brown sugar and a restrained sweetness. Not sure I could have too much of this.

EtTuCthulhu (1375) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 5, 2015
The beer pours a very dark brown with red highlights and a small brown head. The aroma blends booze, brown sugar, and oak, and it?s a bit overwhelming. The taste is mildly sweet, mildly umami, and a touch sour with a aftertaste that is quite dry and tastes heavily of oak. The palate fuses an oily texture, medium body, and a flat carbonation.

Nee, ik ben gewoon geen fan van donker bier. Ongetwijfeld een goed biertje maar ik hou er niet van. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
