3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Three Tuns, Bristol 14/10/2012. Deep, reddish brown with no head or carbonation - pretty much pancake flat. Aroma of red berries, chocolate, vanilla and wood. Flavour had more chocolate, molasses, cherries, a hint of marzipan and slightly sweaty, tart finish. A highly unusual beer, that would have been truly excellent with a bit more life to it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg @ The White Horse On Parsons Green. The pour’s a soupy, murky reddish brown color with a tiny off-white head. The nose is salted dark chocolate, tangy red berry, balsamic, some wood. The taste is more tangy red berry jam. Slightly tannic, more balsamic. Slight hints of brett and buggy wood. These funky flavors are supported by a fat malty body. Notes of chocolate, charred grain, ash and leather. Dry woody finish. Easy to drink, this beer wears the ABV well. Overall, really nice effort. Thought-provoking stuff. I’m looking forward to trying more Wild beers!
