Bottle, 0.50l. Clear amber brown color with thin creamy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, candy sugar, grass and dried fruits. Taste starts with sweet caramel and toffee, follows by mild and refreshing fruitiness, slightly roasty with warming mouthfeel and medium bitter finish. Medium body, syrupy texture and average carbonation in palate. Smooth and complex ale...

Brown sugar, dried fruits, coffee and some chocolate. Dark brown with a red tint, off-white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Overall a really nice and rich ESA, but ever so slightly thin in the mouth.

500ml bottle from Tesco. Pours dark red-brown, off-white head. Aromas of toffee, burnt sugar, something metallic. Taste is more of the same, metallic notes dominating. Hides the strength well, but too sweet for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ML bottle
Dark ruby color, long lasting light tan head. Fairly rocky looking head. Good strips of lacing.
Nose is roast malts and lots of fruitcake. Orange, cherry and caramel. Nice.
Taste is very woody. Slightly faded orange peel, red cherry, toffee, and roast malts. Late wooded hop bite.
Bottle is near expiration so the palate is a bit dulled. Very earthy and woody. Long lasting fruit and wood finish makes up for the front. Solid beer
