3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is rich malts, vanilla, chocolate, mocha, and espresso. Some licorice aswell. Taste is again rich malts with caramel and some rich licorice. Light roasted malts transition nicely to a light bitterness that fades smoothly. Appearance is a thick black body with a thin beige head that retains fairly well.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can consumed at Truck Festival, Steventon, Oxon, Saturday 19th July 2014 Pours like cola with a rapidly diminishing tan head, just a few stray bubbles remain. Quite chocolatey, liquoricey in fact very liquoricey. Coats the tongue and roof of mouth with a light chocolate sheen. Loz gets the star anise more than me. Hoppy beneath the roastiness and chocolate. Good. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours basically black with a couple inches of noisy, bubbling, light brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, licorice, burnt toast, leather. Rich creamy mouthfeel starts with a rich fruity burst, before moving to a licorice/anise flavour, before moving to a drying coffee/cocoa finish. Quite enjoyable, but not one to drink quickly.

Can from Cornelius. Dark brown body with a thin beige head that fades almost instantly. No lacing. Aroma of paper, onion, fig and first aid kit. Flavour of apple, tangy plum, herbs, liquorice and Coca-Cola. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft fizz. Unusual, not the nicest...
