3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep red with a firm head that holds. Quite a tangy smell. Sweet toffee notes with a nice hoppy aftertaste and caramel also. Not bad at all. I must also add that I prefer the bottle to the beer on tap.

I liked this beer, and it has a very unusual but pleasing taste that I have never tasted before. A few extra points for commemorating a famous navel battle. Another British triumph. (The beer, not the battle...the battle was a draw)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle thanks to Jared. Pours dark chestnut with some red glints - a decent head. Toffee and biscuits on the nose, more on the taste plus some hazelnuts. The palate has a big structure and a big crunchy texture and the finish is relatively balanced if not a bit too much. Overall, a nice strong ale, but I’d hope to get different layers of flavours which it doesn;t deliver. Overall, a good beer but nothing special.

Bottle. Rich malty aroma. More malt in the flavour with a rich earthy fruit element that partly reminds me of a Belgian dark ale. Clean bitter finish with a touch of warming booze.
