3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Darkish amber, mit very small head. Smells very malty, like sugared shreddies. When first swigged (quite timidly in this case, for whatever reason) there didn’t seem much to it; but in the afterthroat it did reveal itself a little. Indeed, a finish of honey, chewy malt and a little hidden alcohol. Quite pleasant, but not very assertive and lacks the personality to be a player.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark brown with a diminishing foam. Aromas are raisins with chocolate and weetabix. Dusty yeast with vinous notes and traces of banana. Flavours are sweet chocolate and toffee malts with gritty grain and plummy fruit and figs. Roasted malt with lemon. Herbal, dry and peppery on the finish. Pretty good.
