2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. O dear. Smells and tastes old, oxidised, musty. We had a couple of genuine old bottled beers, and they were more interesting and much tastier than this thing. The sweetness is not sufficiently relieved by any interesting balance. There is no depth. Just musty and sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Very dark brown with a small, beige head (some yeast in the bottle). Sweetish and grainy dark toffee maltiness and dark fruit in the aroma. Roasted-malty, lightly vinous, fruity and grainy-malty flavor with chocolate, and some ashiness, but low bitterness in the finish. Yeast makes the flavor quite pleasant and smooth. Medium-bodied, somewhat foamy-carbonated palate. Very balanced and quite nice overall.
