OK, so this had been shaken up on the journey, so perhaps it is understandable that this looked like murky, muddy pondwater. Clearly pretty old (no date indication or best before date on the bottle). Cocoa and chocolate, with some fruit in the aroma. Rather sweet, with very little hop grip. Nonetheless, once I got used to this, I rather enjoyed it. Bottled (not filtered, obviously) at the RB/Joet London gathering, courtesy of maeib.

Bottle. I’m not sure how long this had been sitting around in the glass before i finally arrived at Chris_O’s place, but it tasted very sweet, flat and stale. Sweet sticky palate, with some syrup, caramel and dark fruits. Very flat and sweet.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2005
Bottled at The London/Joet Gathering Chez Chris_O. The first beer of thisexcellent gathering and it looked like a murky mud bath in the glass. The aroma was a bit on the sour chocolate side with a bit of fruit and some hidden sugars. The taste was much better; it was very chocolatey and reminded me of one of those kirsch liqueur chocolates with a whole cherry in. I think the beer may have been past its best although no BBE date could be found. However it was interestingly tasty enough to warrant a reasonable score.

The Kilburn Gathering. Murky brown. Raisin, musty, old aroma. Buttery flavour well filled with old off flavours. Mild. No hops.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2005
Brown, murky, yeasty and flat appearance. Aroma smells old - chocolate and fruit, acidic. It does taste nicer than it looks or smells, but only just. Average.

leaparsons (8162) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2005
Dark purple-brown in colour with a diminishing head. Aromas are sweet malts with a fruity sour edge. Flavours are lightly roasted malts with hints of dark chocolate bitterness. Quite earthy and dry with a bitter, dry finish. A bit sticky on the palate. I didn’t taste any of the sourness that my fellow raters did, some fruitiness perhaps but nothing acidic. Not the richest of brunes but pretty decent.
