3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opaque rusty red-brown (25-30 EBC) colour with a tiny light creamy beige head. Aromas of chocolate malty, raisin cake, vanilla fudge with caramelised dates, sweet wet tobacco and faint dry leather, herbs, coffee and dark dried fruits develop. Just enough carbonation to lift the palate, slickviscous, smooth, full bodied. Vanilla fudge sweetness rules the palate leaving enough room for a herbal coffee, bitter chocolate astringent bite. Well balanced, sweet lasting finish hiding its alcohol well; pretty complex.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 375ml corked. A hazy, chestnut colored beer topped by a dense, beige head of very moderate size. The aroma is quite grainy, with coffee grit, rye bread, blue plums and some dried fruits. It’s full-bodied, warming and softly carbonated, with flavors of roasted malts and rye bread, Coffee, dark chocolate and coffee grit. Lasting malt dominated finish. Quite nice this one, but I’m not impressed. 150814
