2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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....

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.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2011 Re-rate 8/5/11: Bottle at the brewery. Bottled 3 days prior to my visit. Dark chocolate, roasted malt, toasted bread and a drier finish. Tasty and easy-drinking. Best bottle I’ve had so far. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4
Re-rate 8/4/08: Dark brown color with a medium bubbly slowly-diminishing beige head. Aroma of malt, some bread and coffee hints and some fruitiness. Sweet malty flavor with some toasted bread, caramel, fruits and light spiciness. Finishes drier with roasty notes, hints of licorice and alcohol. Medium-bodied. Quite tasty. 6/4/6/3/13=3.2
