3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium beige head doesn’t last. Nearly opaque black body goes deep dark brown at edges. Roasty dusty chocolate aroma with toast notes. Dry-sweet roasty chocolatey earth taste with toast and toffee notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry roasty chocolatey honey aftertaste with earthy rye crisp bread notes. Lovely. Highly drinkable, full of flavour, and complex. Very harmonic, too. (0.5l bottle, from House of Trembling Madness, York.)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned handpump White Horse London 03/05/13. A dark dark ruby coloured beer with a whitish head. A sweet and nutty beer. Some roasty malt and a bitter aftertaste. Chocolate gives it some sweetness and makes it feel a little un stout like. Feels a bit powdery like this kind of beer can but it’s reasonably tasty.
