Scopey (12720) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle., big thanks to crazy Kenny for this refresher on a hot day! It pours jet black with a tiny, bubbly tan head. The nose is rich, toasty, gateaux, chocolate, booze, vanilla, fruit cake, sweet apple pie, charred wood, cocoa, rocky road and calvados. The taste is rich roast, charred wood, apple, pear, apple pie, toasty brown sugars, cocoa, warming alcohol and rich roasted malt with a slick, warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Rich and decadent. Not the right beer for this weather, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Tropical Croydonia Bottleshare. Opaque dark brown beer, thin dark tan head. Smooth and slightly viscous palate. Very modest fine carbonation. Dark chocolate malts, rich tasting but thin feeling. Mild spicy brandy, just light apple character. Dollop of chocolate fudge. Semi dry finish. Spicy linger. Rich and tasty but somewhat flat.

jackl (7070) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Wax bottle @ Croydonia. Deep brown with a small head. Smells like raspberry, ink cartridge, and chocolate sludge. Sort of oxidised. Taste is sludgy and fat. Cocoa, chocolate, and toffee. Burnt roasted ashiness. So flabby and thick. Heavy. Not exactly a beer for this heat.
