3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
24th June 2009
Cloudy dark chocolate coloured beer. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Rich sweet malt that has traces of ginger and sweet fruit. The alcohol is noticeable but not unpleasantly so, the aniseed provides counterbalance to the sweet malt. Warming afterglow. Tasty beer.

Bottle at chris_o’s spot the amature tasting. Alround rating: Strong peppery alcohol, very sweet cloying, theres a relitivly nice flavour going on but its drinkability lets it down.

A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris O’s Pre GBBF Tasting
Murky brown with a thin tan head. Lots of caramel and dark fruit with all the sweetness carried pretty well by some pleasant roast and bitterness. Thick and chewy and very enjoyable. Good stuff.
