(bottle conditioned). I have a cold, so everything smells like shit , but I got subtle coffee and dark chocolate breaking through the sinus blocking... nice black base , with lose beige head that just died too soon. A pretty grimy and unslick dark ale but soulful and honest features ,with a meaty , smoky , roastines, ev ident bitter chocolate and dark fruit , like tart plums ....This beer is a bit syrupy and jamish in body , with what i’d call a sludgy texture . Dirty , but diggable and niceale .

Bottle bought from Premier in Sheffield. Pours a dark red with little head, light aroma, initially quite weak tasting but settled down over the course of drinking. Pleasant but not astonishing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A dark ruby coloured beer with a mountainous gushing whitish head. I was convinced that after a ten or so minute pour this beer would turn out to be infected, but it as surprisingly good. Smoke and hops in the aroma with chocolate, fruit, a hint of sourness and roast in the mouth. Bottled Conditioned milds rarely wotk, but this does.
