2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled (from Ales By Mail). Coppery amber colour with a mediumsized beige foamy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is the traditional "beer poop" (drink beers 2-3 days, including a bunch of yeasty ones, go for a poop and the sweetish strange poopy notes you get is close to this). Flavour is mildly spicy, herbal with some sweet malts and mild bittering notes. Quite watery and dull. Best Before 17/10/2013 (I rarely mention BBE’s, but I had to with this one, as if it’s rather crap now, it will be rotten crap by the BBE date). Funny enough about one minute after swallowing a mouthful of this, you get some slight cinnamon notes to it. This will be a no go for the future.

Hazy brown beer, good off white head. Crispy palate, semi dry. Semi sweet malts, thin and a little dry. Mellow ginger and a trace of lactose. Finishes dry. It’s okay but not floating my boat.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A Sim rate (cask at the Saaaaaaaafhampton): Aroma of leathery malt. Bit dull with some muted roasty notes. Colour’s a great autumnal auburn. It tastes like a bit of an assault: roastiness, smoke, with a ton of hops and malt. Definite metallic tinge which almost ruins it, but subsides just in time. Cinnamon and nutmeg make it Christmassy with a crisp roasty finish. Decent beer. Enjoyed it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Shoulder of Mutton 21.06.12 in company of Peter Fowler who cracked this open, cheers Peter. Chesnut in colour with a slim off-white head that swiftly departed. From the description I understand that there is ginger and coriander in here but they are pleasantly subtle enough not to ruin things. The hoppiness is still there this is lovely and fruity. Like this. A7 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.5

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at ChrisO tasting, thanks to Fergus, 30/12/12.
Hazed dark amber with a thin off white head that clears.
Nose is dark malt, fruit, spice.
Taste comprises much of the same.
Medium bodied, slightly on the thin side, some spice and bitterness in the finish.
Very average, certainly the lowest scoring and dullest beer I’ve had from BBF.
