2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle as a gift from a friend, James being my name and all. Pours dark brown, short-lived beige head. Aromas are all toffee malt. Taste is toffee and metal. Pretty poor to be honest, better on cask.

1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice mahogany color with gentle but present off white head. Aroma alcohol with malt light coffee. Sweet gentle start into light coffee malt mid depth. Still bitter and sits uneasy. Served from cask a bit too warm.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A very dark almost ruby red colour. The head is thick and creamy although not long lasting. There is a darkness to the flavour but it’s not as hoppy as I was hoping, in fact I’d say it’s a little bland.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Nice and classic one with some raisins, bit of chocolate, some malt and hops in the aroma. Warming and sweetish in the end with balanced carbo. Not bad.

Pours out of the bottle in a light hazy brown colour with low head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of malt and barley. Taste of barley, light cake, malt, ripe berries and biscuits. Easy and smooth to drink - enjoyable beer.
