3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
September 5, 2014 at The Southampton Arms (visit #1) - handpull. Clear deep brick red with a smallish lasting mottled tan foamy head. "hmm ... hmm ... hmm ..." - smells and tastes like a chocolate/light coffee mild - not a ton of body, but plenty of taste - more baker’s chocolate than Nestles - and a surprising amount of grassiness once you adjust to the chocolate presence - and hardly any alcohol on the nose either. Thinnish and still mouthfeel, and the bitterness does build past the finish - still plenty of cocoa in there at the end - easy to drink, but not amazing.

50 cl bottle in Teku. Pours a small off-white/beige thick head; dark brown to black colour. Nice roasty, smoked wood, dark chocolate, and coffee aroma. Tastes roasted malts, cocoa and licorice. Light bitter and coffee long afterstaste. Almost lively carbonation, light to medium bodied, very drinkable. Flavours are not at the same level of aromas, would expected something tastier and more punchy
