Bottled, thanks Papsoe! Dark brown, creamy head. Sweet and eatrhy. Roasty with gentle notes of honey. Medium bodied with pleasantly soft mouthfeel. Low bitterness. An enjoyable, laid back beer not exactly screaming for attention.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 Bottle @ YNWA. A nutty red-brown with a big bubbly beige head. Aroma is sweet, quite a presence of honey, lightly roasted malts, a little raisins and a touch of hazel nuts. Mouthfeel is a little thin perhaps. Flavour is lightly metallic, kind of sweet, a little caramel and raisins. Quite bitter at the end.

Looks very attractive in the old oerbeir glass. Aroma is roasted barley, a bit dust seems balanced. Taste is sweet roasted barley hints of chocolate malt running around. Not really my style of beer but nice enough to drink and finish off my nite.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Bacchanalia, Cambridge. Very deep ruby colour with lasting thin tan head. Bit of ashtray, some charcoal. Some dark fruit skins. Over carbonation. A little disappointing in the mouth. More ashtray, damson combo in the mouth. Some bits are good, like the fruit. Overall a good dark fruit beer.
