2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2006 Draught at Toronado, San Francisco. Opaque black, no head. Sweetish and very roasty with clean rounded mouthfeel. Dominated by hop flavours - grapefruit and licorice. The malt character is it’s weak side - it’s very clean and straightforward, leaving it far behind the top examples of the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
23rd April 2010. On tap at the Rake, last of the barrel. Clear brown beer, snall off white head. Sourish wood nose and some cola as well. Palate is smooth and soft but paradoxically gives a crisp carbonated bite. Chocolate and coffee. A bit of sourness and some citrus. Semi dry finish. Love to try this again.
