The thick sediment of yeast sticks fast to the bottom of the bottle and gives this delicious dark ale a very yeasty nose. Despite this there is little yeast taste. A magnificent, bitter dark ale.
A subsequent retasting eight years later wasn't as kind:
Smells of yeast. And an ashtray.
A dark, well-balanced, chocolatey beer.
Oliver rated this beer 3.5 to 4 stars. Geoff and guest reviewer Gav weren't so keen, and gave it 2.5. The final score is, therefore, a rounded-down average of 2.
