Torfig und schokoladig mit etwas an Röstmalzen, Kaffee, Kräutern und Blättern. An sich nicht schlecht, da schwer und vollmundig, jedoch keine Raketenwissenschaft. Zum Schluss sehr milde Säure. McTapps (6889) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from the Middle Farm Cider Center in Lewes-Firle. The beer pours out in a deep black colour with steady head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of woods, malt and leather. Taste of roasted malt, leather, coffee, torf, chocolate, straw and dark bread. Easy drinkable and very quaffable. Enjoyed it. imdownthepub (14553) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Bottled, 275ml at The Lord Nelson, Brighton. Black with tan head. There was an initial smokiness within the malts with a light treacle toffee character, smooth, light caramel, hints of damp coffee grounds. Reasonable. car13many (249) - POLAND - JUN 15, 2014
