3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
Odd, messy aroma. Wooly taste - ooh, there’s a surprise! Dry bitter finish. Alcohol reasonably well hidden, but you can tell it’s strong.

330ml bottle, lotto 125/12, shared with Finn on a Friday eve at The BrewDog Bar in Manchester. Firm off-white head reduced to a patchy surface. Dark orange coloured body, muddy. Smell of succulent citrus fruits, earthy malts and candy sweetness. Fruity flavour of oranges mingled with spices and herbs with underlying hints of smoked malt. Smooth bittersweet ending. Soft in the mouth. Refreshing (25.01.2013).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at ChrisO Snow Tasting, thanks to mR_fr0g. It pours hazy deep amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is orange, mango, tangerine, spice, wood, alcohol, smoke and earth. The taste is caramel, wood, leather, orange, tangerine, mango, apricot, earth and charcoal with a dry, citric finish. Perhaps not the most balanced beer, but it’s interesting and pretty flavoursome.
