3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours dark Brown. I’m a wee bit surprised by this one. Obviously the reference to Space Balls is excellent but I paid a lot of money for this bottle and it was a pretty underwhelming experience. I could have bought about 5 equally tasty Czech Tmavys for the same price. I’m surprised that Ratebeer backs up it’s lofty price with an impressive score. I might be being a bit unfair. It was after all, very nice but I’m awash with Tmavy’s here and this one is comparbale and by no mean spectacular.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strange beer, 650ml bottled 12/10/12 which may be just a bit too old to give a fair chance, I’d be very interested to try this fresh. Pours dark brown with little head tastes like a mild/porter with a dash of macrolager. Plenty of roast malt, chocolate. It’s not a bad beer by any means.
