3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 17, 2012 Pours a deep red-black with a big coarse yet fluffy beige head. Some aroma of roast coffee, prunes and old wine, clean and chewy on the palate with an initial smooth hint of chocolate giving way to more roast coffee and malt and then caramelised roasted nuts, and finally emerging into a nutty roast-bitter finish. Gorgeous.

Handpump, Sandbar, Manchester. A divisive one, but I lean towards the positive. Dark, roasted malts, tobacco, dry, treacley nuttiness too.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of coffee, cocoa and roasted malt, ebony, red at the sides. Flavour has roast coffee, cocoa and delightful malt. Light bodied, very well balanced, so well made, smooth as silk, glides down the throat. A poem!
