4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 Bottle from Craft Brixton. Colour is cloudy chestnut brown to dark brown, with an off white head. Nose is big and malty, chocolatey, ’Shreddies’ cereal, brown sugar and some zesty hops aromas of blackberry. Mainly very malty though. Taste is a cornucopia of flavours. A lot of fruity hop. Blackberry, lemon citrous, bitter sours, touch of pine, and lots of maltiness and chocolate. There’s a bit of coffee coming through in the finish too. Lots going on but I like it. It has a thick texture and some dryness but it works. Really think these guys are making interesting beers packed full of flavours.

Bottle at home, 27th November 14. Brown, the aroma is burnt sugar, and browned malt, some hops. The taste is good , malts with some muted hops, perhaps as the brew was a few months old. Good and enjoyable all the same, but not my favourite brown ale

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy mahogany, smallish cream head. Nutty dusty layered malt aroma, some orange and piney hops. Lots of cara crystal burned sweetness, nutty, followed by plenty of hop. Good mouthfeel, smooth, slick, lasting bitter. Not bad, would like more malt complexity though, more toasty biscuit.
