3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
As much as I wanted to love this beer (who can resist a beer named Bad King John with jousters and a comely lass on the back label?) I found that there was a burnt tire aroma that put me off. Not terrible mind you, but enough to not give it as high a score as I imagined.

Bottled. First of all, this beer is awesome! I have had already several bottles in the last months. The aroma is dark chocolate and coffee. Exactly my style of a stout. Refreshing yet full aroma and flavor. Nicely balanced stout!

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
This a really old ale, well done, smells like dark chocolate with medium body, nice head, a little watery, taste is dark "dry" chocolate, good to start in the topic of intense beer to identify dark chocolate notes in complex beer and I love full british bottles so generous ml wise, well balanced but no surprises

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of burnt toast and toffee develop with barnyard and a bit of hay. Deep ruby coloured with a toast coloured head. Light fizzy and medium-full bodied. toast aromas linger on the palate. Light bit slick texture with an average mild finish.
