Draft @ Oliver Twist, 30/3-14.
Dark brown with red tints, short creamy head that lace. Starts dry and bitter with citrus and pine, then comes a nice creamy maltiness with toffee, chocolate, nuts and some bread. Really nice body for its ABV.

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - DEC 8, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 Alla spina. Profuma di luppolo, malti e frutta essicata mentre al palato ricorda quasi una Black IPA offrendo note fruttate e luppolate discretamente bilanciate e accompagnate da un retrogusto nocciolato. Corpo medio-lieve, setosa ma un poco acquosa; amaro moderato ma piacevole, effervescenza gentile.

CraftBeerNick (1011) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2014
Keg at Siren Halloween party, 1st November 14, it’s getting vague at this stage, but I liked this, full on flavour, lots of chewy malt, and a citrus twist, tasty

Fin (7805) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
Keg at Siren Halloween Beer Festival, Saturday 1st November 2014. Malty on nose, colour is muddy brown, actually its not so muddy, its dark brown with a small beige head. citrus also on nose. Taste is mostly malty with a steady citrus element, possibly grapefruit, certainly doesn’t seem lemony. I have to say that most unusually for a Magic Rock beer I tired of this, it became a little forgettable. Loz was right her Gamma Ray was much the better beer of the two. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0

Erasmus_ro (1525) - Alabama, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Tap @ Angleterre, Helsinki 30/08/14. Pours an auburnish dark brown with a good, dark latte-colored head. Aroma is citrusy, fruity. Taste is coffee, chocolate, decently roasted, some citrus. Feels like a black IPA in the bad way, rather than a hoppy brown. Too bad. Fairly light with slightly less than medium carbonation. Not pleasant.
