Bottle, deep dark brown with aromas of soy sauce, emulsion, leather and ash. Perhaps a little too oxidised, with more soy in the body, plus hints of raisin, tobacco and cocoa, a bit alcohol warmth and a peppery bitter finish. keepersj12 (3142) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2014

Pigs Ear. Bottle from the foreign bar shared with the Usual Suspects! Almost clear dark brown beer, 4 inches worth of pale tan head! Light palate with mild fine carbonation. Minerally malt, quite lactose sweet but then there is a minor sour note as well. Nutty malt then kicks in with mild orange hops. Dry finish. Actually joins up quite well. Tasty!
