Botella de 33 cl en Cimeria 26-12-13. Cuerpo ligero - medio con espuma oscura poco persistente. Bastante bien de gas. Aromas tostados y torrefactos ligeros con hervaceos finales. Sabores a maltas tostadas con ligero toque hervaceo al final y Amargor contenido. Buena cerveza. Lo malo es que ha tenido que barrer el maravilloso sabor que tenía en la boca de una buena dosis de laphroaig quarter cask

Bottle at home from ales by mail
dark ruby brown, fluffy beige head which stuck around a while. Pine, peaches, citrus...slight oxidation notes perhaps (july bottling). Slightly toasty malt at first then some orange and red berries leading to a longish dry chocolate and orange peel finish. Hops muted somewhat but still fantastic. Carbonation perfect.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home in London - bought at the brewery. It pours clear, deep reddish-brown with a large, thick and lasting beige froth head. The aroma has notes of earth, burnt cocoa, toasted pine. Light to medium sweet flavor with well toasted bread, some bittersweet cocoa. dirty pine, touches of juicy citrus. Medium bodied with average to lively, massaging carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish with lots of burnt bread, mild grapefruit, earth, pine, a bit of baking cocoa. A slow starter but the beer really grew on me as I worked my way through it.
