UPDATED: MAR 26, 2017 March 25, 2017 - on tap at Tin Belly. Dark brown pour with nice head that lasted and sime lacing. Aroma was roasted malt, chocolate and light smoke. Taste was consistent with aroma, chocolate came out as it warmed. Much different from the US version. Side note this English pub goes from playing No Doubt to Jackson 5, weird.

Well yeah, itís a monument. Love one now and then. Aroma of burnt malts, coffee beans, lactic, cream. Pours dark red, Brown black, with a small lasting creamy head. Taste is a bit malt, a bit bitter, coffee. Weak mouthfeel, flat feeling.

Bottle poured into imperial pint. Pours dark brown with thick, quickly vanishing head. Nose of roasted barley, dark malts. Taste, metallic watery roasty. Finish herbal hops...

islay (2473) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2017
11.2 oz. bottle, consumed on 2-13-17. Pours an amber-tinted medium to dark brown with a moderate to large amount of beige head. Clear liquid. Good lacing. Nice color and nice head. Looks good. Chocolate and cocoa scents. ďEnglishĒ yeast smell. Some dry grapefruit in the aroma. Roasted malts and clay in the smell. Lemon tartness above a burnt malt base. Old fashioned British Isles macro ale. Light body. Thin. Otherwise unremarkable palate effects. Too low in flavor to impress though certainly better than the unfortunately ubiquitous Guinness Draught.

PlutonowyMan (669) - POLAND - FEB 27, 2017
Barwa ciemno br?zowa, miejscami rubinowa. Piana jasno br?zowa, drobno ziarnista, jest wysoka i trwa?a. Aromat suchy, palony, trawiasty. Kawowe nuty mieszaj? si? z akcentami popio?owymi i barbeque. W smaku jest zdecydowanie kawa a w tle delikatnie pojawia si? gorzka czekolada. Ca?o?? wzbogacona jest o kawow? goryczk?, jest krůtka, niska. Nasycenie ?rednie, pasuje, brakuje mi tylko jeszcze wiecej pe?ni gdy? tutaj zdecydowanie brakuje cia?a.
