fiulijn (19872) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2008
Bottle conditioned at Cockneys Pub, rhus
Dark amber to chestnut color, with a thin head. The aroma is maybe too simple. The flavor is solid, a straight Bitter, with strong caramel flavor and strong bitterness; maybe not exciting, but back to basics.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2007
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from the Bottle Stop.
Black red, totally opaque and topped with an impressive beige head. Rich and malty with an old dusty character. Pistachio notes along with chocolate and plum. Slightly soapy in the flavour with an almost floral and herbal character in the finish. Close to really good but falls just short of the mark.
