4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the Blue Moon, Cambridge. Very dark brown with a hint of light coming through. Cappuccino, hot fudge, caramel and a suggestion of smoke. Sweet at first with a tantalisingly dry finish. Beef gravy, espresso and liquorice in the bitter aftertaste. Intense and unbelievably well done.

From bottle. Poured with big long lasting head; tastes of hops up front then a nice porter roastiness. A very interesting and drinkable beer. Maybe just a shade too roasty

Bottle at home. Very dark brown, brown creamy head with nice stability. Hoppy and roasted malty nose and taste, some blackcurrant/berry fruitiness, earthy, bitter finish. As it warms, it gets more rounded, some vanilla, bitterness in the finish diminishes, mouthfeel gets even more soft. Silky mouthfeel, light-medium body, low-medium carbonation.
