Nutty, coffee notes on the nose with a touch of figgy, fruity sweetness. The flavour builds on the nose with some vineousness, some bittersweet malt and a strong, dry finish. Pleasant.

Bottle at Björn, thanks.
Half fluffy and second half big bubbly grey head.
Huge coffey aroma with some dark chocolate. Roasted maltiness but also a small bitterness from the dark malts. The dark malts lasts but there isn’t much else.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise, London. Pours clear, dark brown with a faint, foamy head. Burnt toast in the nose with some toasted cocoa as well. Bit of burnt plastic in the flavor, unfortunately, with more cocoa, earth, dirt and leather. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Dry, lightly sweet to finish with mild earthy bitterness, burnt toast, burnt dirt, faint leather. Very meh.

Inrtiguing claims, not entirely lived up to in the flavour, but a subtle brew all the same with bready, chocolate, roasty, nut flavours.

Cask at GBBF 2010. A dark brown beer with no head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and nuts. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and nuts, leading to a dry, nutty, and slightly acidic finish.

Bottle, Waitrose. Muddy ugly brown. The aroma hints at an oaty, chocolatey, slightly nutty and bready character. A different brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Quite unattractive. No head. Cloudy in a bad way with particulates floating around. Seems due to bottle agitation but it had been upright for some time. Aroma is rich toasty malt, is nicely husky. The flavors are toasty and a tad burnt but I actually like it. Leaves a lot of dark roast on the tongue like munching on coffee bean. Strange brew that grows on me. I especially appreciate the creativity and at least an attempt at historicity.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
5 Green apples - sharp.
4 Dark, small head.
5 Fairly decent beery body, but the green apple from the aroma is as prominant here, and detracts from the beer.
3 Watery. Finish roasty - a very deep roast.
12 Clearly a beer with potential, but seems past its best. Should rerate.
