Bottle from DSG, thanks! Deep dark brown color, pours a big head. Caramel, roast, coffee and milk chocolate in the aroma. Malt, chocolate and roast in the flavor. Almost medium bodied, but still with a cream and cacao mouthfeel. Liked it!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thanks to beastiefan2k for sharing this bad boy. Deep brown beer with a thin tan head. Unusual caramel/toffee aroma with a strange phenolic edge to it. Yeasty and crackery but again, there’s something not quite right in here. A lingering toastiness. Lightly sweet but thin-bodied. Meh.

Bottle at Chriso. It pours deep ruby-brown with a small beige head. The nose is sweet, malty, dried fruits, Irn Bru, candy and some meatiness. The taste is toasty, dark fruit, cola, meat, earth, odd spicy ntoes and light tang with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not the best....
