3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is excellent toast character with hints of pleasant sweetness, touches of broen sugar. Appearance is darkened ruby, burnished and fading to translucence towards bottom of sample. Active but controlled carb that disappates to ring with moderate legs. Flavor is well balanced sweetness referenced in nose with immediately following earthy bitterness. Minimal citrus, leans more towards darker character that burns the back of the throat rather than the front of thr palate. Sticky mouth feel lets bitter character linger and compliments (Or echoes) molasses like notes found throughout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shipped to me by hopscotch, shared at the Dean to Mouth tasting. Pours a clear amber beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is fairly hoppy, faint maltyness and a slight fruity touch. Flavor is rather bitter, watery palate. Quite disappointing for a CCB brew actually. Could have been so much more, but it’s still quite an ok brew.

Amber with a white, thick, lasting, lacy head. Smells of caramel, nice fruit, nut and a bit of sweet chocolate. Medium thin body, taste of sweet malt, caramel and a nice bitter hoppy finish. Lasting hoppiness. A nice level of hops,

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma has some malt, some fruity notes. I think there’s a steamy note somewhere. Flavour is mild hoppy notes, fruity and herbal. Nice but expected more.
