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

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.
