3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Handsome pour, a rich brown body with ruby highlights and a creamy beige head. The aroma is malty with molasses, fresh apple skins, and just a hint of earthy bitterness. A sweet malty drink, caramel mostly, with molasses and fruit and a light nuttiness. Very nicely blended and quite drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Chestnut colour with a thick cream head. Aroma is malty, fruity, hoppy with brown sugar. Flavours are toasted sweet malts, brown sugar and caramel. The solid malts background allows this to get away with a lot of sweet elements yet still remain a drinkable and enjoyable beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(500 ml bottle: $3.69 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA) There’s no mistaking what this beer is all about: both the flavor and aroma are very caramely and sugary sweet like candy. The sugar on the palate isn’t quite dark or rich enough to be molasses, it’s more brown sugar to me. A moderate toastiness and even some breadiness emerges in the finish. Hops and bitterness are very mild, though there is a little bite in the finish. Medium bodied but the sweetness gets a bit cloying after several sips. Very dark amber, almost ruddy-brown in color. Clarity is nearly perfect and the light-tan head rises to half an inch on the pour before settling to a wide ring. Lacing is decent, leaving crystalline, irregular honeycomb-like pattern on the glass. I really want to like this beer, but it’s just too damn sugary to me. And after awhile, the unbalanced, one-dimensionality of the sugary caramel wears on me.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pint bottle. Pours to a bright, deep brown color, with a soapy white head that fades, and a soft carbonation. The nose on this beer is malty with aromas of sweet malt, nuts, and treacle. The palate is soft with good flavors of sweet malt, light estery fruit, and flavors of treacle and molasses. This beer finishes with more sweet malt and molassess flavor, and has just enough flowery hop bitterness to take the cloying edge off this beer. A very enjoyable pint of beer.
