3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
4th November 2013
Opaque dark brown beer with a tidy mid tan head. Palate is slightly soft and dry. Modest carbonation. Sweetish creamy dark malts. Smooth light tang. A little lactose. Light sweet fruits underneath with a Belgian yeast like Coca Cola twang. Smooth finish. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2011 In bottle at The Cambridge Bar. A black beer with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of plums, chocolate, treacle, caramel and Christmas cake. A little thin and somewhat chewy. Flavours of plum pudding, chocolate and dark malt. Medium carbonation with a light CO2 prickle. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at Cloisters. Inky dark brown, medium off-white head. Nose of chocolate-coated raisins, fruit cake, plums, liquorice. Smooth palate, milk chocolate, raisins & fruit. Tiny bit of booze on the finish, but warming rather than aggressive. Some roastiness on the finish too. Lovely stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
[330ml bottle, Caley Sample Room, Edinburgh] Served as part of pairing dinner at Caley Sample Room. Black pour with a very thin off-white head. Good roasty, slightly smoky aromas. Boozy, espresso touch at first on the palate, although there are plenty of fruity characteristics about it. Finish is very long and alcohol forward. This was paired with smoked oysters, which worked beautifully

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
More black than tawny. Head falls quickly. Aroma of roasty coffee but dirty notes. Taste the same - very roasty but lots of dead yeast is not good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle resembles the bottle I shared with noize, skortila and bullit. But I doubt this to be a golden ale and it doesnt resemble the other ratings below (apart from ours). So might be another beer. Roasted malt, licorice, coffee. English hops. Pretty ok.
