3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Red-brown with notes of caramel, malt, fennel and light notes of herbs and/or vegetables. The flavour has sweetness and notes of roasted malt, caramel, candy sugar, fennel and some spice. IMO the herb/vegetable notes disturb the overall impression in this otherwise nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate. Bottle as Pinse Sol at Chris O’s "Has anyone seen my stool?" tasting.
Wow, I wasn’t expecting this. The label and name did not exactly have me desperate to taste it. But it was actually much better than the unopened bottle indicated. Semi hazy dark brown coloured with a thin beige head. A really interesting mix of peated malt character giving up some salt and seaweed notes, coupled with some really good smoky caramel. Light phenols and leather too. Decent but swift hit of bitterness in the finish gives way to some pleasing boozy warmth. Nice one.
