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.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma of this beer is fairly light with a fusion of caramel malts, banana, and sweet bread yeast, and the appearance is brown with a medium off-white head. The taste is mildly sour, slightly sweet, and a touch umami, and the palate combines an average carbonation, long astringent finish, medium body, slick texture. Overall, this beer isn’t too amazing, but it is still an enjoyable and drinkable brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Just short of a stout in color and bitterness, could probably fool a novice. Deep dark brown with creamy beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, wood, smoke. Taste is chocolate , oak barrel, espresso. Finish is dry and abrupt with some lingering bitterness. If you’re a fan of stout, give this one a try.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle): Pours a clear mahogany, small off white head with some moderate lacing. Lovely aroma of roasted malts and nuts with hints of some dark fruits. Taste is also of roasted malts but with bits of smokiness, coffee, nuts, dark fruit and a little bit of chocolate. Brilliant ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I found a bottle of "Monty Python’s Holy Grail Black Knight’s Reserve", and ratebeer redirected me to this page.
16.9 fl oz / 500mL bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma: Dark roasted malts, very slight yeast, and some slight hops. Smells kind of like a less hoppy Black IPA.
Appearance: Translucent dark ruby, with a creamy tan head that sticks around a little, but dissipates after a minute or so. Very thick lacing coats the glass.
Taste: Lots of caramel, lots of roasted malt that starts of bitter but goes sweet. Very, very mild hop bitterness contrast the malt. Subtle chocolate.
Palate: Full body, creamy and rich.
Overall: Not bad at all! Actually, it’s really quite good. The flavors in this beer compliment each other very, very well; they all work together, and play nicely on the palate. I wish I could find this stuff again.
