3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown almost black with a big beige head and a slight coffee bean/dark choc aroma very faint. The taste is much better.. full of flavour and what i have come to expect from 8wired beers. Slight hopped resin splash of flavour backed by a nice light dark malt canvas. Overall the best brown ale i have had to date.

A brown ale far above the usual dull standard of the style.
