Nothing to look at but an appealing fruity aroma with a hint of old leather. Warm, expansive taste with a surprisingly late bitter hit. The second bottle was even better.

Bottle. Despite significant increase in strength over cask version it lacks the richness and depth of flavours I enjoyed on cask. Overly toasty finish with crystal malt.

Amber red colour, Rich head. Fruity malt-aroma with a touch of berries. Smooth, somewhat nutty, malt flavour. Nice, dry finish where the alcohol add some extra bite.

Pour is a deep red with no head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Flavor is plum and prune with a hint of nutmeg. Lots of subtle things going on with this brew. Lots of malts and fruit flavors to recomend this brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, pasteurised. Dark brown beer with off white head. Full bodied fruity soft beer, low on carbonation which is great and not too much loss on pasteurisation. Late roasted malty taste, good bottled beer.

dark dampness passes to withering sulfa smell. redish hue and clear. some slight fruit and bitter qualites in the backbone of the beer. easy to drink. uninteresting.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured dark brown, light white head. Smelled somewhat musty. Kind of an offputting burnt malt taste. I am not a big fan of this beer.
