3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
27th May 2012: bottle at ‘Willow Springs’, an American Way Station in Belgium (don’t ask!).
Dark amber/brown body with a full head of off-white bubbles that tried to stay the distance and almost managed too.
Roasted and toasted malts giving off a chocolate type aroma and taste, dark and bitter chocolate actually, surprisingly dry and un-sweet for the aroma and look it gives.
Went well with my ‘Chilli Beans’, so I had another.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at DHL during Paul’s pre-wedding weekend. Pours brown with a soft, beige foam head. Dark sugar, caramel and toast aroma. Medium sweet flavor, nicely balanced with some dark fruits, currants, toffee and candi sugar. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Toasty sugar finish, lightly sticky sweet with more dark candi sugar and also some mild licorice. Very nice beer. Has some intriguing characteristics.
