zenkis (754) - Ogre, LATVIA - MAR 21, 2013
Pours clear, deep brown reddish with white off top, medium lasting, a bit lacing afterwards. Aroma is rich malty-bready, bongbong candy, sweetish dark fruits, a bit alcohol also comes out. Liked so intense aroma. Taste is semisweet, far away sour plus pleasantly above medium bitter from hopping - this brew overall reminds me more of bitter but aromatic one, with no yeasty profile presence. Palate - medium body, light dry finish, sort of toasted malt bitter in aftertaste (also in first aroma was a bit of toasted malt). Mild spicy bouquet. O.A. - very aromatic, bitter ale, minus was confusion about accordance to style, not easy drinkable, complex flavor.

sputnikus (96) - Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 19, 2013
Aroma is malty, with some fruit (pears, cherries) and molasses. Hazy amber with minimal taned head. Taste is sweet with alcohol bitterness. Medium body and oily texture and very lively carbonation. Long malty finish. Nothing fancy here, just good old strong ale.

As with all Wychwood beers, Iím initially put off by the naff label and branding. Aroma of dark molasses , smokey and malty. Taste - some sweetness at first - then very bitter. I like it but I canít get past the bitterness. I keep trying to look for more in that bitterness, but itís very one note as others have noted. So there you are.

Dommod2011 (704) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2013
Brewed under a full lunar moon. If Iíd been around at the time, you know, pre rock and roll days, Iíd have been a fan of The Lunar Society. Who they you say? The Lunar Society of Birmingham was a dinner club and informal learned society of prominent figures in the Midlands Enlightenment, including industrialists, natural philosophers and intellectuals, who met regularly between 1765 and 1813 in Birmingham, England. At first called the Lunar Circle, "Lunar Society" became the formal name by 1775. The name arose because the society would meet during the full moon, as the extra light made the journey home easier and safer in the absence of street lighting. The members cheerfully referred to themselves as "lunarticks", a pun on lunatics. Venues included Erasmus Darwinís home in Lichfield, Matthew Boultonís home, Soho House, and Great Barr Hall. I get nail polish.
