3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tan fun head. Dark brown beer (okay though, it’s mahogany!!). Maffy bottle label. Earthy dusty malty aroma. Tastes dark malts, coffee liquorice notes and some chocolate, some leafy hops. Normal body. Dark malty caramelly finish with roasted touch. Clean. Nice, and feels lighter than the abv.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe 
Very dark ruby brown, clear, frothy fluffy beige head, some lacing
Aroma of dark stone fruits, hedgerow fruits, bit woody, soft spicy fruit hops, soft roast, some rust, some yeast, quite complex. That rusty earthy note takes over.
Taste of dark fruity malts, dark fruits, very soft roast, some earthy hops, dab of liquorice, quite complex, taste much better than nose
Palate - soft carb, medium body, quite rich, smooth, fairly sweet, alcohol well hidden, soft twiggy bitter hops. Finish has some more sweet dark malts, then a bit dry on the tail
Overall - Seems to me to be more of a strong old ale than a barley wine.
