Scopey (14523) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle from the Supermarket in Sliema, Malta. It pours near black with a decent tan head. The nose is roasty, milk chocolate, coffee and chewy caramel. The taste is smooth, roasted malt, coffee grounds, toast, very light lactose, mild bitterness and a touch of acidity with a dry finish. Light+ body and moderate carbonation. Not a whole lot of depth to it, but the balance works pretty well. imdownthepub (14470) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2008
Bottle, filtered, 285ml, many thanks Nige. Dark brown with tan head. I spent 2 weeks on Malta and never found this, a friend bought it back from the airport!. Thin and sweet dark beer, with some roasted notes, toffee, butterscotch in the background, not much else really. Probably the best of the Farsons beers though.

12 ounce bottle from Vintage Cellar. Pours a very dark reddish black with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet malts and raisin with a rotten vegetable note and which initially had an odd bologna like meaty note that fortunately dissipated. Taste is very thin with roasted malts, light dark fruits and a metallic note. Thin bodied. This one is not so hot.

11.2 oz brown bottle.
It pours a deep blackish brown with a thick and creamy tan head that recedes with a bit of nice lacing.
The smell is interesting, a bit of permanent marker, chocolate, and sugar.
The flavor is light and sweet, there is a lot of metallic flavor, mostly milky milk chocolate, it is a bit buttery.
It is okay, easy to pound and get over with.

Bottle. [thank you, yespr, shared @ Plan B]
Pours a very dark brown with a great creamy beige-brown head that disappears quickly. A very nice-looking beer. Aroma is light chocolate, but with a background of metal. Watery palate. Flavour is mostly metallic and rather poor, some light roasted and chocolate notes peep through – but this is sure a case of good looks, no substance.
