Pours a dark mahogany with golden highlights. Dense slightly off-white 1/4 inch head leaves lace on the glass.
Aroma of caramel and toffee and a hint of nuttiness with another hint of dark fruits as well.
Flavor had some small residual sweet malt notes with a bold nuttiness and a strongly roasted and very strongly bittered note with some heavy resins in the aftertaste.
Mouthfel was slightly sweet to start then a very heavy watr gritty bitterness took over, leaving a somewhat chalky aftertaste. Not all that pleasant to be honest.
Drinkability was average. One of the fast flow bitters that is served cold and really masks some poor taste. Lets hope these beers don't catch on. Not very good.

I had this at the John Bull Pub in Moscow. The pub claimed that it was brewed especially for them. Yeah, sure.
Came out a very nice light reddish brown hue under a small but firm tan head that left ample lace. The nose was very mild, almost imperceptible. The mouth was flat and medium-bodied. The taste is classic bitter maltiness, just as a British bitter should be. There was a nice strong hoppy finish, with an aftertaste simultaneously sweet, sour and bitter. Despite the weak nose, this is a fine effort indeed.

Exceptional appearance for a beer in this style. Dark amber with a creamy layer of tan foam. Aroma and flavor are delivered only in part from what the appearance suggests. Medium roasted malt dominates the flavor...consisting of bread dough and sweet wort. Hops are minimal, but prevent this beer from being too sweet. Finish is semi-dry. Good drinkability. Worth a try if you can find it. I had it in a John Bull Pub in Monza (Milano), Italy.
