2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from an ethnic food store in Hull. Deep chestnut red, thin shortlived off white head and gentle condition. Muted sweetness with low caramel and trace bitter coffee in the nose, sweet and peppery in the mouth, quite fruity with burnt toffee notes and a hint of wortiness. Finish has a dry bitterness and a peppery sweetness lingering.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown. Medium head. Sweet dunkel aroma with black sugars and lots of toffee. The character is burnt toffee...what is the theme here I wonder? There is clearly some funny bitterness but otherwise the beer is very sweet.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle in the Polish pub near Holborn with Shack. Very unusual. Dark caramel brown with minimal head, looks like Coke. Very sweet, I was getting molasses and treacle toffee. At first I thought wow this is interesting and different, but the lack of hop or bitterness makes the whole thing a bit sickly, sticky and cloying. Shack struggled to finish his, I wouldn’t have wanted another one.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
A strong malt-caramel aroma. Brillant in taste. Dies too quickly but worth every sip. A little bit porter-like smell, a strong caramel-coffee-chocolate. Beautiful colour,strongly cherry with lighter reflexions when put against the light. For me, an almost perfect beer.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Beer seems very strong an the beginnig, deep burnt malt with hints of caramel and plum. Aroma similar, palate is ok, but later it gets flat, no carbonation, nontheles the foam hold on till the end, all in all a good one but goes flat too quickly
