3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Dark brown black, thick foamy fizzy beige head. Metallic grain nose, touch of nuttiness, some sort of berry fruit that could be cherry but not quite, nice cocoa dark chocolate going on too. Creamy, just a touch of sweetness, big roast backbone, I really don’t get any cherry. Slightly tangy sour thing, but not in a completely nice way. Bitter charcoal finish. Not great, I’ve been pretty disappointed with Tempest recently, hope they up their game this year.

31st March 2013
Tasting at ChrisO’s. Opaque dark brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Light crisp palate. Crispy minerals. Bittersweet dark malt. The dark malt is quite mild but has a cherry sweetness. Finishes dry with a touch of hop. Not bad.

Bottle. Black with a big tan head. Slightly metallic mineral aroma, chocolate, roasty, a hint of what could possibly be cherry, I wouldnt have picked it if I didn’t know. Taste is rich, chocolatey, roasty, dark fruits, cherry in the finish. Quite fizzy, heavy with a slightly bitter tangy finish. Decent
