3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle, pours a ruby red with a small off-white head. Aroma is quite sweet caramel malt, with some chocolate & coffee in their too, berries and dark fruits come through with hints of ripe banana and a touch of alcohol. The palate is thick and creamy and the carbonation is low to medium. The finish is long and quite sweet, the bitterness is coming through but the sweetness lasts on the tongue. Good beer.

From bottle a clear dark brown with a reddish tinge. A cereal chocolatey taste a thinly oily feel. Great beer that comes off darker than it is.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark brown with a red tint. Lasting white head. Dark, rich malty and toffee aroma. The aroma is complex. The flavor has complex toffee malt character and chocolate. Its stronger, but still weak by American standards and I like that.
