3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quiet fascinating as the nose gave off hints of chocolate and oranges, but the body was full and started with brandy, chocolate and toasted malts, but once this beer really warmed up heavy black tea flavours came into play that gave the beer a smooth rounded finish as I would expect when drinking tea.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium-bodied amber. Somewhat watery to start. The caramel malts come through about half-way down the glass. Not bad, but perhaps misses just a bit. (Especially after that Bitter I had just before it).

Tap. Reddish-brown, average head. Bland malty beginning, but some interesting burnt chocolate notes made it worth drinking.

very nice amber.
nuttyy brown color, witha creamy beige head.
sweet malt and caramel in the aroma.
taste is sweet and malty with notes of milk chocolate, caramel and nuts. some nice zesty hoppyness counters all the sweet malt giving this a fruity and spicy edge.
