3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 mL bottle from Beers of Europe into a pint glass. Dark red/brown with a foamy head. Roast, malt and hops blend, unusual but attractive. A little roast, fruitiness, yet dry and surprisingly complex. A particularly good beer from Black Sheep.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great British Brew. Not too lasting, but there is rich dark malt. I’m pretty sure there’s mollasses in here, but I have no idea what they are or what they taste like, sounds right to me though for some reason.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear garnet with a fluffy, off-white foam head. Toasted malt aroma with hints of chocolate and leaves. Flavor is quite nice, medium sweet, coffee ice cream, light mocha, leafy bitterness, faint toffee and toasted sugar. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with mild bitterness, more coffee ice cream character, faint ripe bananas, light dirt and fallen leaves. A very serviceable English strong ale. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong malt and molasses aromas coming off a clear amber/orange body with a wispy off-white head created from very fine carbonation. The molasses follows into the taste along with bitter and semi-sweet chocolate and a slight burnt/charred dryness and bitterness. The body is quite thin making this easy to drink and food friendly. Ends with a continuation of the the flavor with dark chocolate, molasses and tongue sticking dryness. Definitely an English ale with a extra bitter side to it.
