2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask @ The Kings Arms, after a frustrating (if relieving) Chelsea victory. The pour’s deep reddish brown with a bubbly off-white head. The nose is big raspberry, hints of roasted grain, mildly astringent apple peel. The taste is more berry fruits. After acclimating to the the initial berry taste, a real strong red apple cider taste started to dominate. Little roast malt or dry coffee flavors present. This beer definitely has taken a funky infection on. Light body, soft. Overall, I can’t say the infection made this beer undrinkable, it just turned it into something that doesn’t resemble the beer described by other reviewers. Re-rate needed.

Fruity; dried fruits, raisins. Very roast malty with a rather harsh sourness, leaving a bitter finish. Despite that it is quite drinkable. Decent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A clear, brown beer topped by a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma is coffee-roasted with some chocolate and notes of prunes. It’s medium bodied, dryish and nicely carbonated, with coffee doing most of the work flavor wise. Dark dried fruits and chocolate as well. The hops haven’t been added in abundance. Roasted, coffee-ish finish. An easy drinkable and a bit boring one. 130405
