3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle, number C91670 from Waitrose. A glorious deep copper colour with a ring of translucent head; the aroma has raisins and molasses; the body is rather thin, with the sweetness well balanced by the malts, and a vinous Beaujolais-style taste; then some richly roasted malts add some chocolate and hazlenuts to the finish. An elegant and refined version of a Strong Ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 bottle. Thin, big, white head; amber liquid. Strong hop aroma, sweet touch of malts and caramel, a lot of fruits, and some ethanol with marmalade. The taste is rather bitter, has a mostly hop character with some delicate malty additions and the marmalade again. Medium body, slick texture and lively carbonation. Finish is a bit short and not as bitter; also here there is marmalade. All in all the beer is certainly interesting but not particularly remarkable about it.

Red colour, almost no head. Caramel, toffee. Very sweet. The label mentions hops, but can’t really find any, just sweetness, that’s all.
