IanExcellent03 Feb 2006 Very dark ruby, with beige head. Nice attractive boiled sweet aroma. Quite hoppy. Yep, itís quite sweet but itís pretty good. The hop can be quite severe. Good dark rich beer, slightlly hoppier than bottle version

AndrewExcellent07 Jan 2006 Wow, this will take your breath away. Black beer with no real head. The high alcohol content and taste was very well balanced by an astringent rough tanin burnt bitterness that I'd associate with crude oil crossed with a red Bordeaux wine.
