nocheinbier (109) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2018 A bottle in Harvey's tap room in Borough. Pours black with a thick beige head. A prominent port and roasted barley aroma leads to a heavy wine and alcoholic taste. Dark fruits and grains are also present. the beer was served at room temperature which was a couple of degrees above the ultimate temperature for my taste. Still a classic beer from a great brewery.

tightslice (1848) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 18, 2018
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2018 Bottle from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is licorice, old coffee, mild smoked wood and roast malts. Taste is tangy licorice, sweet, tannic dark fruit and then chalky ash. This tastes like something historic, which isn’t particularly incredible but it’s definitely unique and worth trying.

Had this a while ago, may have been my first IPS. I remember it being very tart, and the taste was off somehow. Was one of those beers that stood in my mind not to buy again, especially for the price. Not really that bad of a beer, just unique for it's style.

$6.49 bottle, Wine Warehouse. Not sure of the bottling date - on the cap there a 20 (blank) 3. 2013? or is this just a wild goose chase? Pours thick and black, no head at all. Lovely sweet aroma: chocolate, dark cherry, vanilla, caramel. Flavor is chocolate - somewhat sweet, followed by woody cherry, vanilla, earth, prune, a hint of coffee at the end. Lots of flavor, all good. Almost no carbonation, which for this beer is just fine. Oily. Yum.
