2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer is black with a thin khaki head. Smells of roasted malt and bitter baking chocolate. A bit of toffee and molasses with a mild coffee aroma and perhaps a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is lightly sweet, mostly from the dark fruit notes, which consists largely of prunes. Fairly heavy on the roasted malt with some coffee and a mild flavor of dark chocolate.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Sainsbury. Poured a clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a frothy light tan head. The aroma is big roast, creamy caramel and raisins.
The flavour is medium bitter with a creamy malt hop bitter palate. Medium to full bodied with flat carbonation and a long bitter finish. There is a lot going on here. Carlsberg donít brew beer, but if they did they should be like this!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle at home. Chilled by accident and didnít want to wait for it to unchill itself. So maybe I donít get the full range of flavours here. Still, pours a promising dark colour with some nice roasted malts, figgy hints, grains but nothing overbearing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 500 ml bottle.
Opaque, brown-black with a small khaki head and fair lacing.
Aroma of dark fruit, roasted malt, figs, plums, grain, nuts and a hint of chocolate.
Taste of roasted malt, dark fruit, figs, sour cherries, chocolate, nuts, grain and roasted coffee.
Light/medium body and medium carbonation with a thin mouthfeel. The mouthfeel is so incongruous with the beer's impressive flavor that it distracts (and detracts) from the enjoyment of the beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bb 07/11/14. Pours a fairly finny coca cola colour. It looks just like coke, the colour and carbonation. Aroma is toasty, a little sweet treacle. Medium body, medium carbonation, a bit sticky. Thereís some dark toffee, toast, rye bread, maybe a touch of lemon. Itís OK.
