2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Quite buttery and caramelly and on the sweet side of things. Felt very stale in the mouth, limp finish, the cask version was better. Its a shame its pasteurised.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bought in Elgin, Scotland 2005, bottle. It has a nice brownish head and the color is almost black. Both aroma and flavour have notes of roasted malt, and the flavour also gives me notes of caramel, a little licorice, a hint of spice (mint), and the finish is dry with hits of coffee.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Chris_O bottlefest 2007. Having had this on cask I know what it is supposed to be like but this has been pasteurised and feels and tastes stripped of flavours and feel in the mouth. Decent dry malt but the rest isn’t great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark in colour, wouldn’t say it was tawny...just black! Off white head started out quite thick and died slowly to a patchy covering. The nose and palate share the rich malty/spicy/fruity characteristics of this style of beer. the finish is good and lingers awhile on the tongue. Good beer, £1.29 ( I think!) Aldi, the home of Bateman beer bargains!
