3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle: BBE Jun 15 (Lot 829). Obtained from the brewery and broached on 26 Jan 15. Black with a dark tanned topping. The nose was sweeter than the semi-sour flavours and although chocolate notes could be found in the aroma dark fruits tastes gave the beer a tart feel and hide whatever sweetness there was or had been. OK, but not what I expected to be honest.
