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.

Bottle at The Garabaldi, Northampton, Saturday 7th June 2014 with Bob & Bill Pours hazy brown with a light filmy head. This is quite chocolatey but with a good hoppy rush, though it isn’t too bitter. I like the hops, bitter good quality cocoa taste and soft carnonation, all combine to make this a very nice beer. A7 A3 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5
