AndrewAcceptable02 Apr 2010 Sour with harsh dark chocolate flavours which failed to hide the alcohol flavours. I suspect that this is actually a superb beer if left to develop over a few days in a pub's cellar. I'll be looking out for it.
AlenomoreExceptional02 Apr 2010 Excellant. Big, dark, tasty and strong?
