3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
300ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Black, tan head. Nice fruity hops and a chocolatey malt accompanying that. Lovely dark roast in the taste too, but the aromatic hops improve it significantly, with a real zingy aromatic boost. Resembles a stout more than a PA, so for me more of a HDB than a DHB. The actual bitterness isn’t so high. Definitely a nice beer, I’d not pass up a chance to have another.

330ml bottle from Brewdog Birmingham drunk on the train. THREE weeks out of date & refund refused! How about that?? Dusty coal citrus, toasted malts, leaves & moss with a great bitterness. Can’t help feeling it would’ve got a higher mark had it been fresh!
