3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75cl bottle. Pours a chestnut brown with a prop head. Nose is nuts and chocolate though the yeast note is slightly overpowering. More fruit n nut bar buy yeast still too heavy of a note. Palate medium bodied and textured with a drying finish. Overall, quite good bit yeast too dominant.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Muddy medium-brown with a thick bubbly off-white head that fades with some lacing. Oddly salty roast aroma, liquorice, leather, hint of sulphur perhaps, deifnite "English" spiciness too. Earthy coffee roast, very dry with just a touch of liquorice fruitiness. Thin-bodied. Meh.

Pours clear chestnut with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma is mild, light chocolate, plums. Highish carbonation, good dry mouthfeel. Flavour is suddenly kinda porter-like. Roasted, chocolate, light milky, some blackberries, mild malty tartness. Lots of malts, roasetd dry finish. Quite unbalanced.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich, muddy brown hue with a tight, creamy head. Strong chocolate, light molasses and iced (sweetened) coffee hit the nose first, along with a mineral twang. Flavour begins lightly sweet with soft chocolate, turns sour like lemons towards the middle and finishes with herbal and coffee tastes. The finish is notably dry and mineral rich. Medium to full bodied with a velvety texture and lively carbonation. Raspberries somewhat replace the sharp lemon flavours as the beer gains warmth. Shared from a 75cl bottle at Gastropub Tuulensuu.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle (Tuulensuu, Tampere, French days 2008) shared by Tbone_ - thanks! As "brun".
Deep red. Aroma is sour initially, but roasted coffee later, and quite sweet. Good carbonation and sour in the mouth. Taste follows - a little sour too, and also roasted - that builds up over time. In some ways it’s a little watery, but on the whole it’s a pretty decent mix of tastes spoilt only by the unsophisticated sourness.
