22 oz bottle shared by Margaret, thanks! Pours a clear dark caramel with fading off white head. Aroma is sweet caramel and toffee and biscuit malt. Flavor is same with mild hop complexity. Solid malty finish. Huhzubendah (3753) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Near black body with a thin ring of beige head. Aromas of charred malt, roast, smoke. Sweet malt with medium alcohol presence. Perhaps an over abundance of burnt / charred malt. Low carbonation with notes of melted chocolates and booze. Decent in small quantities. Could use a few tweaks.
hawthorne00 (4114) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle, 6.2% ABV. Dark reddish brown with a large off-white head that laces nicely. Aroma of chocolate and toffee, some piney and herbal touches that jar slightly. Sweet with some chocolate and lots of fairly plain toffee. Fairly high bitterness chokes off the sweetness OK, but undermines the soothing quality of the maltiness that comes before. Not that that’s all that interesting for the strength. Caught between two stools for me - neither bland but harmonious nor quite breaking away. Davros (3282) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2015
Pours copper with a fading head.
Nose shows bready, toasty malt and some soft earthy coffee.
Similar flavours with hints of smoke amidst toasty and bready malt.
