(Bottle). Sweet aroma of caramel malt and a little smoky syrup. The taste is sweet and malty with a slightly burnt toffee tone. The aftertaste has a slightly dry and grainy maltiness and a hoppy bitterness with grapefruit flavor. Not my kind of beer, to much grainy malt in the taste!

500ml bottle from Morrisons supermarket (£1): lokis333 (598) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - OCT 18, 2015
Terrible, that’s about all I can say to sum up the taste of this beer really. It started okay when I first poured it, sitting well in the glass but instantly things deteriorated when I smelt and tried the beer with little more than some caramel malts and too much bitterness coming through. The beer was a real struggle to finish and I ended up giving up close to the end, it was that bad.
Clear ruby color with small caramel foam. Aromas of coffee, roasted malt. Palete light, medium body but bitter aftertaste/finish. Taste, Roasted malt, nutty. Overall bitter, malty, smoked okayish, not my stile beer but definatly has stronger and lasting taste which is good. birocotsios (184) - - OCT 1, 2015
