3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at The Marina. Pours a dark Brown with a Reddish hue and a resilient off-white head. Chocolate nose with coffee and chocolate powder on the flavour. A little syrupy sweetness. The most remarkable thing about it was that it was virtually uncarbonated which made it feel a bit like an ale. Light bitter finish. The best of the bunch without any shadow of a doubt.

On tap at brewpub 10.12.14. Dark amber. Foamy beige head and lacing. Moderate aroma of Czech hops. Wonderfully complex taste, with burnt caramel, cofe and dark malt, with Czech hops and burnt caramel lingering on in aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown, good slightly off white head. After those last three, being hit by this one’s aroma - full caramel, cocoa, good malty presence... it was a revelation, and a glimmer of hope that I’d found a beer that I’ll actually like quite a bit. Nope, Chuck Testa. Again, the taste proved to be nearly as subdued as the others, yeah, there will be some more notes of caramel/dark malts, if barely, but it’s lean and, again, made for mass consumption really. The best of the bunch, no doubt about that. I just wished they would’ve been more adventuresome. But hey, if beers being like that helps them stay afloat (hur hur since it’s in a marina hur hur) for some reason - why not.
Note: Rating from memory, notes on stolen/lost mobile, will update if found.

Közepesen sötét, vörösesbarna színe van, habja piszkosfehér, közepes méretű és kitartású. Illata és íze kávés, karamellás, pörkölt malátás és kissé élesztő. Könnyű, enyhén vizes teste van, moderáltan szénsavas. Utóíze keserédes, kissé kávés. Kellemes, talán lehetne egy kicsit testesebb.
