3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
16th December 2013
Craft Clapham. Keg. Opaque black - brown beer with a small pale tan head. Palate is light and smooth, semi dry. Fine carbonation. Very light touch of dark malts, no roast or bitterness here. Whisper of chocolate. Mild fruity tang. Smooth but frankly disappointing. Not getting the normal Southern Tier sumptuousness or depth of flavour.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Haggen’s Grocery, Burlington; bottled 05/02/13, 1½ years old
Black color with thin persistent beige layer. Delicate notes or roasted malts and cream. The body is drier and thinner than expected; dark flavors, roasted malt, burnt caramel, a hint of coffee, and a light sourness that could be from the fruit.
Smooth but not impressive.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Craft Clerkenwell. Now I love Southern tier. Black beer thin tan head. I always expect an assault on the senses. This is ok but doesn’t deliver the big takeover I expected. A little watery in the mouth for a 8% beer. Decent fruit. Maybe not enough malt backbone. And served way too cold. A little musty. Maybe an old keg. Hmmm.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bootle, 22oz. At Christianssand Brygghus. A more or less black one, topped by a dense, beige head. Roasted malts, coffee notes, some licorice, a faint sour hint and some dried fruits in the aroma. Nice carbonation, full body and semi dry on the palate. Lots of flavor, but perhaps lacking a bit on complexity. Licorice, roasted malts, coffee and dried figs in the flavor. A nice bitterness too. Lasting finish. A tasteful beer that hides the alcohol well. Worth a return. 140321
