Aroma: earthy molasses, dark fruitiness, grassy hops. Palate: average carbonation, dry finish, medium body.

DutchMark (193) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2014
Good classic double. Nice deep dark with a fluffy off white head and soft lively carbonation. I like that it is not too sweet. Flavors are well balanced. Noting is dominant. It is yeast, malt sweetness and some burned malts, caramel and fruits and hops. Alcohol is hidden. Body is light and refreshing for such a dark beer. Acessible easy to drink.

edsspoon (529) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle - deep ruby red with a light brown fizzy head that slowly fades to a small ring. Aroma of roast malt, earth, spices, grass, followed by rich coffee, vanilla and some bubblegum. Taste of malts - roasty and peppery, with notes of clove and bubblegum. Rich and sweet. Medium body, high carbonation.

Bork (334) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Rich and complex, yet at the same time rather mild. Lots of fruit, mostly of the sour variety, and fairly tart from the mid out. A bit weak and somewhat thin on the finish.

ForlornHope (95) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2014
33 cl bottle at home. Pours a deep brown colour with a medium head. Aroma is sweet and spicy, almost of clove. Complex taste, initially sweet but with a developing smooth bitterness. The finish is quite short, but bitter. There is almost a peppermint jam undercurrent, which is almost palate cleansing. A rich and satisfying beer which is also very drinkable.

Cimbasso (235) - - NOV 30, 2014
The colour is a hazy, very dark brown with a huge beige head. Fruity and nutty aromas, and a full, complex taste, with flavours of date, banana and prunes alongside hints of leather and spice. A really great, well-made beer. Ale heaven.
