3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle served in a Belgian snifter.
Pours with excellent clarity; dark red-brown; small semi-durable head; spotty lacing.
Aroma and Flavor are mild, as per style. Sweet malts, some dark fruit and earthy hops in the nose. The hops largely disappear from the taste, but leave the ale with a good sweet/bitter balance.
Feel: medium-light body and carbonation. A bit thin, as usual for style.
O: very good example of style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark Age pours with a very ample tan - cream head which frames the deep ruby liquid perfectly. There is a strong presence of nuts, biscuit and milk on the nose and this is followed through into the beers taste. It is a great session mild and goes down a treat, just leaves you wanting another.
