3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Jug and Bottle, Bubwith. Dark brown. Tan head that turns into an odd, green tinged film? Aroma is a sour, vegetal weirdness. Some blackcurrant. Some roasted coffee. Taste errs toward the sour side of all that. Smooth palate, though, and oddly quite enjoyable. Insipid, it isn’t.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bb 08/07/14. Went for a fairly aggressive pour which resulted in a dense black/brown beer with a pale tan head. Aroma is coffee, sweet choc, a bit of licorice, rum... Light to medium body, mild carbonation. A touch of burnt treacle, bitter coffee, and there's was sweeter choc earlier in the proceedings. Nice.
