3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear, reddish-brown pour with a beige head. Aromas of liquorice, caramel and anise. Liquorice and caramel in the flavour, roasty malts with a nicely balanced bitter edge and a touch of smoke at the end. A little thin on the palate, but unique and tasty. A very nice brown ale.

Very well balanced for my taste. Nice roastiness on a good mouth feel and the rich aromatic hop variety makes this one a delight.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a bottle. Pours reddish brown with a huge beige head. Aromas are sweet malt, grassy notes, biscuit and plum. Flavors are malty sweet chocolate and stone fruits with bready tones. Dried fruit and malt in the finish. Interest balance between fruity notes and the more traditional maltiness of typical brown ales. Light mouthfeel. Anchor Brewing rarely lets me down. They’ve made another very enjoyable beer. This one is really tasty.

Dark brown beer with a beige head. Syrup, raisins, sherry on the nose. Watery body. Crispy mouth feel. Caramel and bread flavors. Some fruity roasted coffee. Tasty yet watery. Smells good but the taste doesn’t quite match the smell.
