3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Struck by a strong aroma of syrup and malt. Deep reddish brown appearance with a decent enough head. Quite smooth to drink, thick syrup flavour that reminded me of liquorice. Overall a tasty ale with a bitter finish. Felt like a winter ale to me.

Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, toffee, dark fruits, molasses, and some sweet malts. Flavor is the same stronger on the dried fruit and molasses flavor. Wasn’t sure what I was going to think of this one but was surprised, not a bad brew at all.

Bottle at Beer on the Pier, Chicago brought by Shelton Bros. Strong alcohol aroma with molasses. Cloudy dark amber color and slightly off-white head. Stronger and more flavorful than the Adnams Suffolk SSB. Pretty darn good, actually. I could see myself really enjoying a pint of this at an English pub. Good stuff.
