3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby brown colour with a thin off white head. Aroma is quite sweet of dark fruits, chocolate, slight liquorice, some marzipan and bread. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate, brown sugar, toffee, some resin and spicy hops. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation and an oily texture. A bittersweet, spicy hop finish but slightly metallic. This is quite decent, complex and very drinkable. Although I’ve had better of this style.

OK strong ale maybe to subtle for its own good nice flavours coming through just not pronounced enough for the style OK but would like to see more from the flavours.
