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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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...

Draft recently and a can a year or two ago. Pours brown color with pretty light head. Notes of light roast, milk cocoa, grains, and some toasted hops. On the thinner side for the style. Just ok

This p0ured a dark br0wn, nearly black b0dy with an 0verfl0wing f0amy/fizzy br0wn head. 0ddly, n0 lace. It had a smell 0f dark r0astiness, a t0uch 0f milk ch0c0late, and a str0ng whiff 0f lic0rice. It seemed a bit thin despite its p0tency. The flav0r had m0re lic0rice/aniseed than dark malt, a light sweetness.. the r0astiness being l0st by the finish. N0t bad.
