3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
7/13/2011: Monty Python’s Holy Grail Black Knight Reserve Dark Yorkshire Ale... Aroma: Caramelized malt. Appearance: Clean amber color with a lofty, foamy beige-colored head. Flavor: Malty, caramelized, roasty coffee undertones; mild, DRY herbal hoppiness in the finish. Palate: Medium-body; average mouthfeel. Overall: Actually, this is surprisingly flavorful, well balanced, and easy and enjoyable to drink; the commercial description is spot on: "A deep, ruby-chestnut brown ale topped by a near-white creamy head; rewards with a complex palate from roasted Marris Otter and Pale Chocolate Malts, and a dry Goldings hop finish. Cheers!"

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. 7/31/13. Pours a bubbly red with a fluffy but fleeting off-white head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, bread, licorice, baker’s chocolate, dried fruits (banana, berries). Taste is surprisingly fruity, very dry; red berries, caramel, toffee, unsweetened cocoa, some grassy bitterness; finish is dry fruit, leather. Some light lacing. Medium-low carbonation. Mouth feel is oily, slick. Worth drinking.

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.
