Color caoba/rojizo oscuro con densa espuma color canela. Aromas algo suaves, herbales y levadura. El trago tiene una densidad media con un cierto picor por la burbuja, el cacao es evidente y le sigue un amargor seco y herbal. Muy rica.

Bit yeasty aroma, but also maltu and roasted notes. Round tast, very smooth. Could drink thiss all winter. Loved it. Good English beer, but made by Americans that is a bonus and minus in the same time.

Botella de 65 cl en el lúpulo en mayo de 2013 bastante buena con sabores y aromas intensos para sus 5 vol. Habría que repetir de nuevo para sacar mas matices. Bastante buena.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark brown color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose has some nuts and bread in there, making it light and pleasant. Taste is a little toasty and has a bit of a bite on the back end. It actually tastes rather clean and refreshing. Good brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear dark cola brown with a thin bubbly head of a light beige hue. Nose is sweet and earthy with loads of toasted nuttiness, like pecan and almond with just a wee hint of cocoa. Flavor is earthy with a wee touch of molasses, especially on the finish, but also with a dark earthy sweetness of nuttiness and light cocoa.
