3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Dark ruby bordering on brown with a thick cap of soapy head that laced all the way down. nose is old shoe leather and English malt. Flavor is dry roast, old brunt coffee and again the old leather note. Medium body with normal carbonation. Iím still learning about this style so itís hard for me to understand what the brewer intended here. Interesting and odd.

On tap @ Ale House. Dark motor oil black with a persistant 3 finger head. Aromas of hay, fig and tropical fruit. Starts caramel, giving way to smokey roasted malt to the point of ash, with some hop bitter and a touch of heat. Coats the roof of the mouth with an oily finish. Good with greasy food.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very strong, and invitingly sweet aroma undercut by roasted malts and complemented by fruity esters and lightly spicy hops. Darkest mahogany brown body is topped by a thick, fine-bubbled, frothy, brown head that lasts well and coats the sides of the glass. Flavour offers everything the aroma suggests: it is quite hoppy, fairly bitter yet also quite sweet and the roasted malts are plentiful. Full-bodied with soft bubbly effervescence that keeps it from feeling cloying or heavy. Quite a remarkable beer! Cellar temperature. Bottle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reading the description this should taste like a modern day Black IPA, but it doesnít. The taste is malt heavy. There are hops, but not pronounced. Appearance is muddy brown with white thick head.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bread and some strong funk in the aroma. Flavor is dominated by spice, with some bittering hops and a little metallic taste in the finish. Not as good as some other efforts from Pretty Things, but still a fine beer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
65 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 29.04.2011
Aroma has exotic, ripe fruits, some berries and vanilla. Like smelling a raspberry quark. Flavour is a bit messy with hops, raspberries, bilberries and vanilla. Very complex, unique and good!
