Bottle, 8.6%. Good ginger aroma, quite roasted. Black colour, seems cloudy. Small frothy brown head. The flavour is roasted with a good ginger note. Is a little citric, sourish from the hops, it seems.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy dark brown with small tan head. Clear, dusty aroma of roasted malt and ginger. Sweetish, smoky and spicy flavour of malt and ginger. A rather disturbing and unbalanced mixture. Drinkable and decent but I could have expected more.

Black pour. Giant tan head. Creamy and lasting. Some lacing. Huge nose of ginger with some notes of chocolate. Smells like stir fry. Big taste of ginger and a handful of earth. Not bad. Might complement some Mongolian BBQ.

Bottle@home from bottleshop
pours a dark garner black with a fluffy tan stockings head. Sweet stem ginger battles dry dusty cocoa and rich burnt toast roast barley for nasal supremacy. Underneath that us a meaty umami note that makes this a savoury beer. Medium carbonation plays on the tip of the tongue, chocolate, followed by spicy stem ginger, a touch of lactose sweetness then peppery ginger all over the tongue. A touch of chalk and peppermint and mature cheddar wraps up the finish.
