bottle. Clear brown colour, mid-sized beige head. Aroma of roasetd malts and caramel. Full-bodied, malty with flavours of caramel and roasted malt. Quite spicy with a touch of alcohol and a lingering finish, into which some hops seem to be tuning in.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer was malty in aromas and sweet in taste. The initial taste was sweet and ended with a slight acidic taste. The body of the beer was not creamy enough for me. But it was not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark double malty beer. Small hoppy smell, with a nice dark malted taste. The smell keeps hanging for quite some time. Good style but not really my type of beer though.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sorry, but this brew is undrinkable! Piercingly tart and tangy sweet flavor that is difficult to swallow. This beer has no carbonation, lacing or body. It is abundantly sweet and overwhelmingly tangy! Otherwise I liked it.

11.2 oz bottle Prior notes-Poured a dark brown with a huge head. Aroma of sweetness, malt, and grains. Taste of this light to medium bodied brew was of mainly malt and throw in some caramel. Not bad but not good.

Came in a swing-top (always wondered what that was called) and poured a huge foamy head with good lacing into a dark amber colour. Aroma was moderately malty and same for the taste, i.e., malty but not overly so.
