3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Darkish orange and murky brown color with awesome off white creamy head that laces the glass in clumps of foam. Smells creamy, like mashmallows and vanilla custard with hints of coffee creamer and berries. Flavor is somewhat similar, but milder. There is an initial impression of sweet cream and marzipan, with the flavor building to notes of black tea and toffee and eventually chocolate on the finish. It has a balanced and persistent bitterness that keeps this beer from ever coming off sweet. Smooth creamy mouthfeel, like a Boddington’s pub can, gives me the impression of a milk chocolate truffle.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle, just out of date when opened on 15th Dec 2014. Bought at Beers of Europe and hidden in my stash until I rediscovered it yesterday. Poured at home into an Abbot Ale glass tankard, my ’go to’ tasting glass currently. Lovely clear body, bronze hue to the amber colouring: on top a smooth white blanket of foam. Semi-sweet malty lead in the aroma and taste, hops arriving in sweeping waves behind. Mild nutty hints within the taste and my sweet tooth loved the malt base of the brew. Good, nice feel to the blend of flavours, body depth also worthy of note. I am really impressed with the beers from these guys: will seek out more.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The color is a cloudy orangeish brown with a large off-white head, and the beer’s scent blends earthy hops, basement aromas, and caramel and light malts. The taste is mildly bitter, mildly sour, and a touch umami, and the palate fuses a slightly bitter finish, medium body, slick texture, and a soft carbonation.
