3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml bottle from Saveur-Biere
Bottled 03/2013 - Pours dark copper orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of malts, bready and sweet earthy notes, some yeast and stingy off-flavors too. Taste is smooth, malty and sweetish with some bready notes and crisp earthiness. Finish is bready, earthy and malty with some caramel and toffee. Decent, but feels a bit off. Could be better from a fresh bottle.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
At the source, pours amber with medium head. Aroma is plum, dark malt, rust, fruits, wood and some other lightly oxidized notes. Not my favorite style in general but this one was lackluster. Light body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Dark brown color, thin spray head. Nose is European malts, Munich and caramunich? Sweet caramel, and earthy hop.
Flavor starts with burnt toast, earthy malts and earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Roasted grain body with cereal hints. Dried leaves and hints of roasted nuts. Finish has a nice blast of pepper. Easy to drink and I enjoy the pepper. Medium in body with a dry texture.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Brewdog, Sheffield. Reddy amber. Lovely, thick, creamy, lasting, cream coloured head. Caramel. An earthy, light spicy, herbiness. Hint of bubblegum. Taste is earthy sweet. Some relief, in the form a light dryness, at the end. Not really my bag.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Un beau brun roux colore cette bière aux accents subtils de caramel, de miel. On goûte le malt et la céréale. Une terminaison un peu épicée.

Not much of an aroma, just a hint yeast, a reddish brown colour, with an unpleasant sour taste, with a bitter metallic finish.
