3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Ruby-amber coloured, small - quite stable - foamy layer; sweetish dark-malty nose with a tinge of molasses; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; lingering sweetish-bitter finish with a touch of bitter chocolate in the aftertaste, some warming alcohol detectable. A bit simple, but enjoyable...........

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark translucent red body, small head. Sweet, malty aroma, some soapiness. Vanilla and barley in the taste, with an (again, kind of soapy) hop-bitterness. Decent balance. Some liqourice in the finish, which was quite dry for the style.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33cl. Poured a pale reddy brown, with no prominent head. A woody, malt aroma, with hints of nuts and strong alcohol. Not too hoppy in smell. Flavour is rich malty/nutty. Hints of whisky accompanying the alcohol level. Lasting bitter alcoholic finish, with a little sweetness. Quite a light palate. Not a bad bock.
