3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle conditioned. Deep chestnut, excellent off white rocky head, slight overcondition. Spicy corriander, malt and yeast aromas. Quite thin in the mouth with fruity raisins and a metallic maltiness. Malty yeast bitter finish. None of the Bon Secours beers are anything special, but this is the best of the lot.

The aroma is very sweet with notes of sugar, yeast - a lovely complex aroma. The color is an unclear brown and it has a beutiful light brown head. The flavor is sweet, yeasty, and soft with notes of rich fruit and plums. The alcohol prickles the tongue. It ends on a slight bitterness - a very nice beer.

Intriguing aroma with grape; odd flavor--slightly sour, notable presence of malts and yeast. Good color and lacing. Something root beer like here, but also something enjoyable despite a thin palate.

Aroma of grape popsicle, notes of yeast....murky halloween colored beer..brown, purple, orange edges. Flavor was boring and uneventful.....no kick at all.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber coloured with a medium creamy head. Malt and candy sugar aroma. The candy sugar shines through both in aroma and taste. The beer is not particularly sweet though. A rather dry, bitter finish and aftertaste.

A very long and delicate aroma of malt, toffee, nuts and caramel. Very nice dark colour with an extremely creamy head. Really bitter flavour.
