Opaque black - brown beer, small pale tan head. Smooth palate. Tangy malt with a very unpleasant burned taste. Trace of fruit before a neutral finish. Don’t mind toasted malt but hate this burned taste. Drain pour.
500 ml bottle. From beersofeurope.co.uk.Gary (1999) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2011
Dark brown colour with big frothy light tan head.
Stunning vegetable and herbal aroma with ginger (?) and mold.
Yeast, mild liquorice, dry malt, lots of that vegetable (elderberry?) in flavour.
Quite drinkable. Almost enjoyable.
(bottled) It drank like a fucking Porter with Elderberry juice in it and there’s little to say or reflect. Cool biege head was gigantic.
