2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 4-14-2011 (Bottle) This beer pours a small smooth semi-fizzy tan head that mostly diminishes, opaque dark brown body, fast rising carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, chocolate, roasted, and light hops. The taste is malt, some chocolate, roasted, and burnt. The mouthfeel is soft and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is just ok as it does not afford much character and the flavor could be enhanced.

Bottle. Pours near black with a tan head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has notes of dark bread with some chocolate and a bit of roasted malts backing. Flavor is mainly dark grains and dark bread with a hint of roasted malts and chocolate. A bit thin on the finish.

Roasty and toasty, but its not the mosty. Thin and average. Won't seek it out, but I'd take it in a desperate situation.

This beer looks pretty solid, dark brown with thin layer of disappearing head. Some roasty malt and grain in the scent. Taste is roasted malts and light chocolate. Surprisingly not too bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle bought last July at Sourced Market, St Pancras in London. Fawn-coloured head to a deep, mahogany coloured body. Minimal lacing. Roasted malty nose, hints of prunes. Sweet taste of black malts and dark fruits. Vague bitterness to the ending. Smooth in the mouth. Gives a rather bland impression (shared with Finn, Tromsø 05.03.2014).
