Bottle shared during Scopey’s 5K tasting - Croydon, London. Sourced from Kris Wines, I think. Pours clear brown with a frothy tan head. Mild toasted bread aroma with touches of chocolate. Light sweet flavor with dry bread, dirt, bittersweet cocoa, earth. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Light dry earth and bitter cocoa on the finish. Just so so overall.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2015 Cask at the Webb Ellis JDW, near-black with a fine tan head and a burnt caramel and pine nose, rich, dry-bitter and dark, with grapefruit, burnt treacle, liquorice and a hint of gravy. Almost a black IPA, but much thicker and syrupy-dry. Lovely. Re-rate at the Crosse Keys, gorgeous roasty winey burnt-bitter stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black beer with a thick, bubbly brownish head. Smells mostly of malt but I think there’s a hint of something fruity, almost citrus, under that too. That’s there in the flavour too but it’s mostly toasted malt and a dry, hoppy aftertaste. Unusual but very nice.
