Scopey (11762) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from Thistle News. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The nose is roasted malt, toast, tar, cocoa, coffee and soy sauce. The taste is bitter, roasty, coffee, pepper, toast, mild acidity, tar and light soy sauce with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not bad, I’m just not a big fan of the soy sauce character kicking about.

Drake (11500) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2010
22 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours black with a very dark brown medium sized dense creamy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of chocolate, chocolate, cocoa, more chocolate, roasted malts, bitter leaf and citrus hop finish. Taste is chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, leafy hops and a bit of a lactic note. Medium bodied and quite smooth. This is a hit. As much as I can’t stand Rogue the company, their beer is starting to win me over. Slowly.
