Fairly nice dark beer. Claims to be fruity but I only got a treacle flavour. Quite good, but perhaps best in small doses.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. It pours a very dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is very fruity with over ripe plum, red grapes and some spicy yeast phenolics. The flavor is fruity with plum, pear, dates, light spicy esters, hints of banana and some dirty, ashy roast in the finish. Decent, but not really my kind of thing.

Dark Brown. Nose is cheesy with molasses great body. Sweet, shoe polish cloves and banas. Sweet finish. A bit too fruity and spicy for me.

On tap @ RR! Squid ink pour with a frothy latte head that took a while to settle. Loads of roasted malt, rich coffee, cocoa, candied plums, sugar dusted raisins, and peppery spice. Medium mouthfeel. Solid.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tried this one at the source. Pours brown pour with ruby edges and an off white to khaki creamy head on top. Low aromatics with some dark malts, a little roast, some yeast, chocolate, dark fruit. Very smooth velvety mouthfeel with low carbonation. Flavor is chocolate covered raisins, some yeast spice, very smooth, lightly sweet, no bitter. Pretty solid brew, and seems very similar to Salvation to me.
