2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours black with nice small mocha head. Burning pipe tobacco, charcoal, maybe a little skunk and some faint citrus offer an aroma that is original if not appealing. Body is fairly thin in first instance, it gathers some steam but is ultimately disappointing. Flavours are muddled and oppressed by a really repugnant growing roasted-malt (primarily coffee) bitterness which carries to the finish. Yuk, this really isn’t for me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with a large light tan head.
Nose shows cocoa, roasted malt, nutty notes and soft piny and spicy hops.
More cocoa as a flavour along with coffee, caramel and toffee, very similar to tiramisu. Then there’s some more pine and a mildly hoppy bitter finish.
Carbonation is a on the heavy side.
