330ml bottle. From Shropshire - vintage unknown - possibly late 1970s. Cap is decent condition, some scuffing on bottle and label. Chilled and served carefully, but beer is murky brown and unpleasant looking. Aroma is aged ale - dried fruit cake, old damp mattress, cardboard, straw, decaying wood, a touch of rotting flesh, a scratch of chocolate... Mouthfeel is firm, slightly chalky, with good flavours hovering around bitter chocolate. Finish is softly but firmly bitter and cardboardy with more chocolate. I was pleased to find this bottle, and I have enjoyed drinking it, though - regardless of the interesting flavours - this is not a great beer! omhper (25262) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2002
Nut brown. Dry. Light bodied. Unspectacular but solid.
