3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Backlog rating. Bottle from Sourced Market, London. It pours a deep amber/brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma is malty with caramel notes, with mild citrusy piney hops. Taste is medium sweet upfront with caramel malts and honey, then more bitter with roasted notes and pine needles. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Very good for the style.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark colour with frothy head, a roasted but almost sweet chocolate aroma as well. I was expecting that earthy taste to remain but its almost a sweeter, hoppier taste, the chocolate taste is still there but taste is almost reminiscent of an IPA. Not a bad thing, but certainly not what I was expecting.
