3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, dark brown to deep amber colour, one-finger off-white head. Aroma is malty and sweet with chocolate notes. Quite thick mouthfeel, and the chocolate toffee coffee tastes is all there. Well carbonated, sticky bitterness at the back of the tongue. Very well executed brown ale, not as creamy as, say Newcastle Brown. And I like that.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crystal clear, dark copper to brown body with a slightly creamy, light tan, long-lived head that laces the glass well. Moderate aroma that is sweet and malty with dark dried fruits, both raisins and prunes, I also get brown sugar, light roasted notes and hints of hops. The moderate flavour follows the aroma. Light sweet and light to moderate bitter taste. A bit watery on the palate with metallic hints in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl brown bottle; beige head, clear copper body, some dots inside mug.
Oaky scents with prunes, butter, caramel malts, smoke in the oak.
Tastes dark caramel malts, smoked prunes, maybe a nut passed by. Good taste.
Alright body. Modest carbonation (less hard since 2012).
Finishes with malty grains, brown bitterness, lingering a bit. Overall nice brew!
