Poured very dark with off white head. No expense has been spared on hops. Ample fruit to copensate the bitterness. You certainly get your money’s worth in flavour,

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught (handpump) @ ’The Bear and Staff’, Bear st, London, UK. Red brown, little sparkle, minimal lacy head. Malty aroma with bitter chocolate and some mint. Neutral taste - very correct, but not so distinctive. Good fruitiness and light bitterness towards the end. A touch of coffee. Flat, a bit powdery palate.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2005 Very interesting beer. VERY strong bitter flavour. Not something i could drink a lot of, quite fizzy. Gives me a bit of a headache, id recommend anyone to try it though. good slogan ’afraid you might taste something lager boy?’ Very dark looking with a dark head.

Draft at the Abbaye. Clear mahogony colored ale. Classic bitter, nice nutty and malty flavors. Decent session ale, I suppose. Still would rather have a Fullers.
