Gravity dispense at the 23rd Battersea Beer Festival - 06/02/13. Light black with a thin tan head. Nose is roast malt, burnt toffee, blackforest gateux. Taste comprises roast malt, dark chocolate, light fruit notes, touch of coffee. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish. A more than decent porter!

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.
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.
