3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark, opaquey brown with a thin viscous film and crusty ran ring. Nose is soft choc, spicy and instant coffee. Lean choc, lean malt and soft enough. Nothing biting here apart from a green coffee buzz. Very soft carbonation, but painfully thin mouthfeel. Neat and tea like towards the finish with some brassy bitterness. Linger isn’t lean, nice and dusty choc - but the flavour boat had already sailed here.

11.2 oz bottled 8.5 months ago, purchased at Mile High Wine & Spirits. Black appearance with an average brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, dark chocolate and earth. Similar flavor, rich coffee flavor with a moderate roasted bitterness and a dry finish. Light to medium body, a little bit thin, but surprisingly pretty good overall.

33cl bottle, many thanks to DSG. Smooth fresh nose of roasted barley. Hints of woody sourness. Nice sourish beginning, rich and round with dry smooth roasted barley. Very dry, nice sourness in the body. Fresh, smooth, malty smooth, easy to drink but still thick. Great malty-dry sourish aftertaste with a bit of bitterness. Great.
