Plastic bottle, from Tesco. Deep deep ruby red, fluffy but shortlived beige head and moderate condition. Sweet roasted barley and traces of berries in the nose, gentle soft sweet maltiness with a little smokiness and traces of coffee. Gentle sweet and roasted bitterness in the finish. chriso (7536) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2005
2 litre plastic bottle from Tesco. And after buying it, I noticed it was past its sell by date. So I wasn’t expecting much and I didn’t get it. Very dark colour with a hint of red. Distinctly cloudy, which was a surprise. Stagnant malty aroma. Caramel and dark malt flavour. Carbonation is not excessive. Piss weak and very thin. But, in the end, it was perfectly drinkable, so I shouldn’t be too harsh in the marking.. SilkTork (5883) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2005
Light bodied caramel mild with some roasted barley tones. Tickling carbonation. Lacks character, but is excellent value for money and is not offensive. Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2005
From A Huge Platic Bottle.Well you get ya moneys worth with this baby.Very dark brown in colour,small head,roasted chocolate flavour,this was ok. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2004
Chocolate and fruity malt aroma. Some sweetness. Watery mouthfeel. Very drinkable but entirely unexceptional.

Bottled. This beer seemed ominous - apparently they only sell it in 2litre re-sealable plastic bottles (around 3 ½ pints), and it's dirt cheap, just £2.00 a bottle, which is less than a pint would cost you in a pub. A shade lighter than black, with a bit of red, slight head. Full-bodied - burnt, coffee like taste, with no discernable chocolate flavours and dryish finish. Better than it would appear at first.
