3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (from Tescos). Ruby coloured. Fruity nose with light roasty malt and hints of earthy hops. Nice combination of light freshness in the mouth and heavier malt flavours. Quite dry but not overly so with pleasantly laid back hops in the finish competing with roasty chocolate for attention. Very interesting but becomes slightly flat in the mouth after a while but the lack of drinkability isnt too much of a problem as this is more of a sipper.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours opaque black with a decent cream head. The nose is a mixture of mild chocolate and biscuit flavours. The taste confirms that this is somewhere between a bitter and a stout. The palate is medium to rich in structure and texture and the finish is not bad - it kind of cleans. Overall, not bad but a bit ’caught between styles’ for me.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty non existant aroma. Slight stodgy, earthy smell. Dark almost black in colour, has a deep red menacing glow. Off white head. Slight burnt charcoal taste. Watery texture.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A rating from an old notebook. Bottle. Dark brown with a thin off-white head. A sweet and malty old ale with plenty of dark fruits and chocolate. Not as richly flavoured as some other similar beers but still a very tasty beer.

(on bottle) Soft cake/bread sweet aroma. Very low carbonation, gerts dryer until a chocolateish finish. Coffeebean to the finish, lingers nicely.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the bottle this pours a dark brown with no head and a cola-like carbonation in the beginning, although this gradually subsides. Creamy, sweet caramel and tobacco aromas with roasted, dark chocolate notes. None of these are too obvious at the start but come across well once it beer has aired slightly. Rich burnt malt and chocolate flavours coat the palate. These flavours are comitted to the tongue with a creamy texture. All of these qualities make for a delicious ale that’s varied and especially pleasant on a cool night.
