3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. (Thx to Papsoe) The copper-colored, almost clear body is topped by an off-white head. Slightly burnt aroma, with notes of coffee and a little oxidation. The flavor is roasted, a bit sweet and malty. Full body. The oxidation in the aroma is probably due to the beer being aged some months past BB-date, yet it is a quite good brown ale. (070510)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchase from Tuckers Maltings online. Poured a very dark brown with no head, aroma mostly of malts and some nuttiness as well? Taste is similar nutty, roasty, quite distinguished very decent again from Teignworthy.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle conditioned. Clear dark brown with a sparse off-white head. Aroma is chocolate malts. Taste is the same with caramel and some fruit. The texture spoils it for me though, flat and watery.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nutty, earthy, floral and lightly roasty aroma. Clear mahogany brown with amber highlights is topped by very shy, large bubbled tan head that recedes rapidly to the slightest ring. Chocolate maltiness and orange blossom hops with fairly roasty dark malt bitterness. Medium body with low carbonation and somewhat watery texture. Seems like this could have been a very nice beer if the bottle-conditioning had worked. Bottle (BB 0306, Tuckerís Maltings).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazy brown beer with a thin light brown head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel, but also some notes of hops. The flavor is very light - a little like a Newcastle Brown, but still with a better body which makes for a far better beer. The flavor is malty and roasted with notes of caramel and nuts.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml, bottle conditioned. Dark brown colour, no head, minimal carbonation. Delightful, intense and complex aroma with strong fruity and roasty notes - plums, prunes, coffee, chocolate, leather. Also hints of oak and spices. Nutty and roasty flavour with a pronounced bitterness from the roastiness and the hops. Hoppy bitter finish / aftertaste. Interesting beer, even historically.
