3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(650ml bottle) Pours a lasting, creamy beige head atop a deep mahogany body. Nose is rather attractive - somewhat a sour porter with the ash base. Oddly thin. Strange taste - starts as cigarette butt water and glides into a tart lactic finish. Sad, so much promise.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
650mL bottle, pours a very dark brown with a quarter inch of tan head. Aroma is very malty, with caramel malts, brown sugar, molasses, roasted malt and light nuts - very pleasant on the nose. Flavour is dominated by metallic notes though, sadly, with a bit of roasted malt, caramel, toasted bread and toasted nuts coming through. Sort of a chemical-like aftertaste as manuchampions points out. Drinkable, but not good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a very dark brown verging on black with a stiff, slowly shrinking tan head. Aroma is slightly roasted malt, light nuttiness, caramel and cocoa. Mouthfeel is a tad watery. Taste is sadly dominated by a metallic note, with light roasted malt, caramel and worrying buttery, chemical after taste. This beer is so new surely it isn’t infected? Yep, there’s a not pleasant note at the end that ruins any lingering maltiness. Not good considering how wonderful it looked in the glass. .
