Craft Clerkenwell. Bottle tasting. Thanks to Bruce, Dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is very light and mildly crisp. Nice level of tartness. A bit of Flemish red character here. Well integrated mild dark malts, whisper of dark chocolate. Mild vanilla oak. Light finish brings a touch of balsamic. Hangs together very well indeed.

Bottle @ GT’s house. Just about black in color with a tan head. Aromas of cranberry, roasted malt, and grape skin. Whiskey, oak, and dark chocolate. Some subtle caramel sweetness and sour berries. Flavor is sour with just a touch of sweetness. Plenty of cranberry, raisin, and mild balsamic vinegar. Roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a hint of chalk. Enjoyable.

Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours dark brown with a small, short-lived, off-white head. The bouquet offers notes of black cherry and deeply roasted, carbonic malts. Full-bodied and silky with airy carbonation. The flavor is fruity, tart and roasty. Finishes tangy, roasty and a touch raspy. Thanks to landhoney for sharing this world class brew!
