330ml bottle from the Aldi Real Ale Festival. Iím not really a fan of oak aged beers but the process does suit this dark style of beer. Not a great deal of aroma but I was picking up dark chocolate. The flavour has depth, with the oak aging obvious from that familiar twang. Good depth, balance and carbonation in this robust dark beer.

330ml bottle from Aldi (6.6%abv). Very dark reddish brown, not much head. Sweet toffee malt aroma. Whiskey malt flavour. Bland watery toffee aftertaste. Not my sort of beer.

Bottle bought at a food fare on Clapham Common. Clear dark brown, no head. Nose is sweet bourbon whiskey, vanilla oak wood notes, slight malty grain, caramel, ale fruity. taste is really nicely balanced. Sweet bourbon, caramel, toasty malt, slight chocolate, cocoa, grain husk malt, and then some vanilla and dryer wood notes. Itís very well balanced and a nice soft sweet subtle beer.

Dark, clear red beer with an aroma combining malt, hop, caramel and fruit. The flavour has an initial sweet fruity hit. Thereís almost a smokiness to the flavour but once the sweetness subsides the main thing is the malt. On the tongue the finish is tangy and hoppy. Quite an interesting mix of flavours and they manage to remain distinct. Very nice.

33cl bottle from Stockbridge Market. Appearance - opaque black with a thin attractive lace head. Nose - vanilla going into rum and raisin. Taste - vanilla and dark chocolate. Palate - medium to full bodied creamy texture not too cloying on the finish. Overall -yep this one definitely works. The best beer of the day - a disappointing day, mind.
