3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 330ml aged 4yrs. Dark brown with off white head. I find these bottles difficult to pour as you always get the bits. Solid, dark ale, caramel with hints of spiciness and a wine like flavour, quite sweetish still after the cellaring. Pretty reasonable.

Chocolate aroma with apple. Very alcoholic flavor with apple, chocolate and licorice. Too alcoholic and therefore not well balanced.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
It’s a beautiful red mahogany with a nice head. The aroma is sweet, slightly perfumes with notes of candy sugar and malt. The flavour is sweet with notes of roasted malt, candy sugar, light fruit, a very light citrussy bitterness and caramel. The overall impression is for me a very heavy and solid beer, that has a lighter part in the middle of the flavour. 2295
