15th July 2008. Label says brewed with Carageenan. The interweb reveals this to be a seaweed extract commonly used as thickeners in the food industry!! Mmmm! Smooth and creamy but full of lively dark malt bite and quite a bitterish hop finish. Plenty going on!

Koelschtrinker (20404) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Gespannt öffne ich die Flasche des IPA’s und erwarte einen vollmundigen Hopfengeruch – Fehlanzeige. Auch der erste Schluck zeugt nur wenig von einem IPA, es ist zumindest ein sehr mildes mit deutlichen Einflüssen eines „Bitter“. Schwach malzig-hopfiger Antrunk, der Hopfen wird nur noch wenig stärker und wird bald von der bitteren Note überholt, die sie ursprünglich nachgezogen hat. Dennoch spielt die Hopfigkeit im Mittelteil noch eine relativ große Bedeutung während sie im Abagng absolut unwichtig scheint. Nur noch eine leichte Grasigkeit ist feststellbar, sonst regiert hier eine mittelintensive Herbe und eine eher schwach ausgeprägte Würzigkeit. Frisch, der Hopfen zeigt sich noch einmal indirekt. 7/9/8/9/12/9

On the train from Hereford to Inverness, bottle from M&S Camberley, 18/10/13. Light black with a moderately appointed light tan head. Nose is roast malts, cocoa, cardboard, earthy tang. Taste comprises earthy cocoa, cardboard box (Living !), light roast, puff of smoke. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish with light roast and a touch papery. Middle of the road affair, nothing I’d rush back to.
