3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at The Spaniards on the Heath. Dark brown color with orange/garnet hilites. Creamy light tan head. Dark toasted malt aroma. Near full bodied with medium carbonation. It is balanced, but whether from hop or burnt malt I cannot say. Suugests the old Guinness in a way, but with a different bitter.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark reddy brown, rich froth for a head. Roasty and hoppy aroma. Wickedly bitter hoppy taste fights with punchy dark burnt malt taste for your attention. Don’t get me wrong, this is a well balanced fight. Anyway neither wins until the end of the aftertaste, as the bitterness survives longer. What’s this? The burnt malt wants a rematch?...
