Bottle shared in London for Josh’s farewell tasting. Pours clear, rich brown with a frothy beige head. The nose has toasted bread, a bit of pine, ripening orange. Medium sweet flavor with a good deal of earthy-ashy bitterness, soft roast, baking cocoa, charred malts, burnt pine. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish, more bitter dark chocolate, earth, ash, some dried citrus, decent roasted malts, well toasted bread. Not bad.

On tap at Bailey’s, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out buttery notes, lightly roasted malt, and light hops. Flavour brings out roast upfront, followed by a considerably harsh hop punch. Buttery palate, finishing on harsh woody, hoppy notes. Decent stuff, but a little off the mark. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2016
