Bottle 330ml.

Clear dark brown colour with a small to average, frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, caramel, cold coffee, moderate hoppy. Flavour is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a long duration, hoppy, licorice notes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20111202]

Bottled@Chriso. Deep amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is ashes, dark fruits, some berries and mild ashes. Flavour is caramel, fruits, ashes, some slight liquorice and roasted malts. Balanced. Rather hoppy, but not overhopped!

330ml bottle kindly provided by Gazza, drunk on 2 December 2011. Near black in colour. Bitter Arabica coffee with a touch of licorice up front. Then the spicy, lemony Sorachi kicks in. Hints of tropical fruit / pineapple. Lingering hoppy aftertaste. Relatively light bodied. Not a big roasty porter and, not surprisingly, hop-led but a very decent drop.

Cask conditioned at Minehead Beer Fest ’11. Very Dark brown with cream head. Good nutty, bitter malts, richly roasted leading to a relatively full on flowery hop, some bitter orange and zest. Ended a heavy day very nicely, showing good quality.

Bottle consumed with Gazza and my dad 01.09.11, cheers Gazza for bringing this along Quite honoured to have a preliminary sampling of this beer which is just about to be served at a few pubs in Derbyshire and elsewhere over the coming days & weeks. As Gazza suggested this was a touch young yet, but it was keen and eager to impress. Touch of pithiness at end (grapefruit). I got some spent coffee grains, Gazza got chocolate covered coffee bean, he was spot on. There was some good bitterness and yet it wasn’t overly bitter, touch of fresh green hoppiness but I would imagine that any rough edges on this will continue to smooth out over time and this can only get better.
