3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big 750ml bottle, lotto 15 203/12, shared at The BrewDog Bar in Manchester. Patchy surface over a hazy, dark amber coloured body. Good amount of lacework. Smell of sappy fruits with hints of candy sweetness. Rather succulent taste of fruits, lightly spiced, and mingled with nutty malts. Not overly sweet to the finish. Smooth and clean in the mouth. Quite well bodied considering the relatively low alcohol strength (25.01.2013).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a murky amber colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, chestnut, spices. Flavour is much the same, subtle sweetness. Overall a bit on the thin side, but I enjoyed my bottle. Speaking of bottles, I really appreciate the presentation this brewery has chosen for its beers.

Bottle. Amber body, good sized white head. Thick and nice body for the strength. Aroma of caramel, hops, nuts. Taste is sweet, brownies, grass, toasted malt, flowery biscuit ending. Not among Borgos most exciting beers but absolutely a drinkable one.

750ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. There is an earthy finish to this beer that takes something away from the flavour. Pretty decent beer though as are most of the beers I have had from this brewery.
