3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a big, creamy off-white/beige head. Good lacing. Sweet fruity and candy aroma hop; bit of citrus – very nice. Tart flavour, (dark) fruity and with an orange peel-like bitterness. Floral notes as it warms as well as a faint touch of yeast. Stingy bitter initial finish, leading to a lingering bitterness with a slight liquorice resemblance. S mild alcohol burn and a bit of grass as well. Overall the aroma had me really surprised, but the flavour, although still okay, unfortunately didn’t follow suit. 10.09.11.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
August 15, 2011 - on draught at Porterhouse (Covent Garden). "The Tasty Drop." Clear refractive deep chestnut with a long-lasting thick, creamy beige head, nice lace (4+). Nice floral/grainy aroma with an iron/mineral tang to it (7+). Taste starts with cocoa, then oily grain, immediately overpowered by building floral/herbal dry bitterness - and I would have guess the ABV at less than 5 - solid stuff, great balance. Thick and astringent, solid carbonation, with a very very long dry herbal morphing to a funky grapefruit pith bitterness - man oh man this is good, I wasn’t expecting it at all. Recommended.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Pours a slightly reddish brown color, with an off-white head. Aroma is fruity and very grassy from the hops, balanced by a nutty malt flavor. Heavy bitterness. Very full-bodied, long and bitter finish. Intense in terms of aroma and taste. Hints of sherry, as it warms a little.
Delicious at first, but after a while gets out of balance because of lingering bitter taste on the palate. To be drunk with moderation. I like it.
