Gary (1972) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle. Poured into the 50cl Leffe goblet .. Good ass brown looking beer with robust ass cream. Smells skunky ,so fuck wasting my time talking about it . On the palate everything is dictated to by pasteurised vibes. Malt tang giving brown bread . caramel ,some dried fruit . Kida earty hops and wheat . A bit of roasted malt giving chocolate bitterness .some good texture but skunky vibes hold this back.

AshtonMcCobb (6409) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle from the Spar. Appearance - dark amber with some red chinks. Nicely proportioned head. Nose - honeycomb some smoke and some chocolate biscuit. Taste - toffee and burnt biscuit. Palate - medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - quite gnarly but good complexity.

Rune (12071) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2014
500ml bottle from a local Tesco store. Lasting, frothy beige head leaving spotty lacing to the glassware. Clear dark brown body colour. Malt driven aromas, mid-sweet. Dark malty flavours, hints of liquorice, caramel, and ash. Mild roasted bitterness to a prolonged ending. Fine bodied. Nice, a bit unvaried though (hotel room at Leeds University Campus 08.07.2014).

Bottle shared with McTapps. Fine one with some chocolate, a bit of straw, some hops and high drinkability. Classic one to enjoy.

50cl bottle Caramel and chocolate aroma, very roasty. Foam only lasts for about a minute, itís completely gone afterwards without any lacing whatsoever. Long lasting bitterness, medium body. Malty, with a very subtle hint of hops. I wouldnít necessarily recommend it to a friend, but itís not a bad brew.
