UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Red brown, with a disappearing tan head. Fruity aroma, citrus hops with plum and port. Sweet malty flavour with some chocolate and coffee, and plenty of hop flavour and bitterness. Gave me a rather Belgian impression.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is not typical. Itís smooth roasted caramel with grassy or floral hop. Very dark garnet color with a smeary white film for head. Full bodied with mild and creamy carbonation. Flavor is roasted caramel with floral sort of hop. Itís a bit darkly bready, but not overly sweet. Sort of an overachieving Newcastle Brown. Character itís got. The finish is much as the beginning. This ale is arguably in a class by itself.
