Cola-red with hardly any head. Smells smokey, chocolate and burnt malts and raisin. Very thin and watery, tastes burnt without much flavour, dry sharp finish. Expect more from Tuatara.

This is my first legitimate shower beer review. Donít judge. Donít lecture me either, Iím well aware of the majesty of the shower beer, this is just the first time Iím doing a legit review. Poured 1oz in a shooter cup on the bathroom counter to check out colour (dark brown) and cap (tan head, kinda bubbly). this is the last beer for me from the tuatara mix 6. Aroma is dark roast malts, chocolate, and almonds. Taste is full-bodied, smooth, and loaded with toasted malt character. Lingering bitterness, mild chalkiness. Decent.

Bottle direct from brewery. Dark brown, clear, minimal off-white head, quite chocolatey, mild roastiness, slightly smoky/ashy, medium body, soft carbonation, long, dry finish. Quite good.

Brilliant clarity for the darkest of brown it produces, almost black. Head; up then down and waltzís off to nothing at all. Bitter and olfactory piercing, darkest chocolate, burnt raisins, charred red wood and a lot of earthy, topsoil on the nose. Lean and light but at the same time mouthfilling. Heavy spice, smoke, ash and embers linger long. The palate has a touch of dried stone fruit amongst some tidy chocolate malt and burnt bread. Not bad for drinking but un-engaging and I felt I just needed to finish it. Hoped for more! (50cL, BB 11/11/13, The Beer Store Morley)

I have to say, this is not bad. I was pleasantly surprised, it had a solid taste and was well balanced. In keeping with the english style, you could drink this all day.

An enjoyable brew to finish a session or meal with. No outstanding features but no obvious faults either. A good example of the style.

Itís dark here so Iíll just say that this beer is a bright blue and iridescent rainbow glitter mix. Heavy roasted smell, hint of smoke or tobacco, light fruit, salt, I let this sit and it morphed into a wonderful sweet medium chocolate aroma - cool. The taste is all over the place pleasing with a huge change from finish to end. Bitter choco, good tasting roast, somewhat lengthy bitterness on the back end, ashy and a bit burnt on the finish - wonderful breath. Fine brew!

Black, mahogany tinge, large head that settles quickly. Smells..malt, cocoa, slight hints of dark fruit, roasted grain and coffee. Tastes..quite malty, some hops and fruit, roasted grain, some coffee and bitterness. More tasty as it warms.
