3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 Bottled, from Rhythm & Booze, Barton-upon-Humber. Deep ruy red, fluffy but shortlived off white head, gentle condition. Sweet malt aromas with suggestions of cola and a sticky background melanoidin note, sweet and fruity in the mouth with a very chalky bitterness and some earthiness, gentle bitterness initially in the finish but a sticky sweetness takes over and lingers longest laced with some peppery spiciness and a hint of retronasal alcohol.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 50cl. A huge amount of fudge and banana in the nose. Overly sweet and reminiscent of diacetyl. Disgusting.

Bottle (BB Dec 07). Suprisingly good first off. Light roasted malts (liquoricey treacle) with raisiny malt and caramel, even a little earthy hop. Sweetish body but with a little roasty dryness. Unfortunately the body is thin with metallic carbonation. Well worth a try but the bottling process hasnt done this any favours.
