3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle looks good, the beer in the glass dark, almost black, small head. Starts malty and a bit metallically, quite fruity from the beginning, notes of plum. Finish a bit milder, modest sweet, still fruity-malty. Not bad!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle by 26.03.12. Nose of dark sweet malt with a little minerally yeast. Blood red body with a creamy tan head [I’m looking at a full half liter against a white wall, and then with a light behind it, and anyone who calls this something other than ’red’ is either having problems with color recognition in a dark pub or should stop drinking so quickly]. Taste sweet with tarry caramel and light bitterness, sticky fullish body with a little bit of airy yeast. Herbal with a touch of pepper and tang, the roast and toffee act as a base but with no flourish. Rather enjoyed this one, but there is a slight cloying medicinal note and on the hole it doesn’t really stand out from the crowd.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange brown, nice foam. Some yeast in nose. Roasted and a little sweet maltiness, has a espresso-like (or vending machine coffee?) taste and dryness despite not being too dry. Slight hoppiness in the aftertaste. Good, maybe a tad too malty.
