As with all Wychwood beers, Iím initially put off by the naff label and branding. Aroma of dark molasses , smokey and malty. Taste - some sweetness at first - then very bitter. I like it but I canít get past the bitterness. I keep trying to look for more in that bitterness, but itís very one note as others have noted. So there you are.

Brewed under a full lunar moon. If Iíd been around at the time, you know, pre rock and roll days, Iíd have been a fan of The Lunar Society. Who they you say?
The Lunar Society of Birmingham was a dinner club and informal learned society of prominent figures in the Midlands Enlightenment, including industrialists, natural philosophers and intellectuals, who met regularly between 1765 and 1813 in Birmingham, England. At first called the Lunar Circle, "Lunar Society" became the formal name by 1775. The name arose because the society would meet during the full moon, as the extra light made the journey home easier and safer in the absence of street lighting. The members cheerfully referred to themselves as "lunarticks", a pun on lunatics. Venues included Erasmus Darwinís home in Lichfield, Matthew Boultonís home, Soho House, and Great Barr Hall.
I get nail polish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dobre i wyraziste piwo o pięknej puszystej pianie, ale niestety szybko opada. Kolor rubinowo czerwony. A smak goryczkowo-wytrawny i intensywny. Piwo ciekawe bo ważone o pełni księżyca, nie wiem czy to miało jakiś znaczący wpływ na smak ale fajna ciekawostka. Alkochol wogůle niewyczuwalny.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear deep copper colour with a white head that slowly dies down leaving good lacing. Lots of fruit aromas on the nose, notably plum and raisin, as well as some malty notes. Taste is largely the same, dominated by dark fruit and caramel but with a bit of a hop kick at the end and some warming alcohol, with a lingering finish. Some other ratings noted the beer being rather unbalanced. I frankly didnít find that. Maybe the long journey from the UK to Australia knocked some of the edges off this one.
