3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Once again, this is a new style to me and I have to say that I really enjoyed this beer. Poured a beautiful dark brown with a thick creamy head. This beer had so much malt and caramel to ot. Very low carbination and lacing was nice also. I did detect some rasin or fig hints to it too. I thought it was a great beer, but a stong ale? hmmmm I don’t think so, maybe I’m wrong.

500 ml bottle, bought in Scarborough. Possibly filtered, but probably not pasteurised. ABV is 5.3%. As a cask ale it was voted "Champion Winter Beer of Britain 1998". Chestnut coloured beer, rich off-white to beige head. Very nice malty aroma with oaky and vinous notes, also caramel and dark fruits. Malty flavour with caramel, some raisiny and vinous notes, moderate hops. Moderate carbonation, soft mouthfeel. A pleasant beer to drink.

Bottle. Pours a deep amber with a thick yellow head. Caramel aroma with undertones of orange? Sweet caramel taste with a subtle hoppiness. A slight tang in the aftertaste. This was too watery for a strong ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 mL pours a dark brown-ruby, with a medium head that lasts and leaves sticky lace. Aroma is dryish brown sugar, bananas, and raisins soaked in alcohol and licorice. Taste is similar with additional toasted nut and molasses; occasional raisin-chocolate-smoke. Finishes dry-tingly and slightly sour with some metallic hops and dry yeast flavors. Palate is mostly smooth and dry, with a more watery and light body than expected. It appears and tastes mostly like a good brown.
