Chestnut brown, bright, a few mm of tan head. Aroma/flavor dominated by astringent Styrofoam/chemical flavors. This must be a bad (oxidized?) batch.

Light haze on this amber beer. Good pale cream coloured head. The head tastes of dry raw wood!! Crisp and dry palate. Minerals, creamy malt , vanilla cream and citrus. All battered in to submission by big dry wood and even a trace of sap! Very dry finish. The woodiest beer Iíve ever had - raw wood at that.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught. Amber brown clear no t much head. The aroma is chocolate frosting on a slightly burnt vanilla cake. This is itís best quality. The flavor is way too sweet and reminds me of the "chocolate cake" shot made with Frangelico hazelnut liquor. it its only good because it is surprising and last for a second. Mouthfeel is cooling, thin, with a slight acrid finish. Really dislike beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bitter from Archive Beer Boutique. Enjoyed this beer on a scorching hot summerís afternoon while sitting on a balcony high above the city. Golden amber colour with a wave of white foam that clings to the glass. Aroma of caramel and vanilla cake. Very lively in the mouth with a smooth velvet mouthfeel and a strong alcohol kick. Rich and lush this beer goes down a treat with flavours that penetrate all parts of the mouth.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a large bottle into an Element pint glass to drink. The beer was mostly clear with a vibrant amber-ruby red color with a medium-sized, foamy white head that had short retention and minimal cling and lacing. Its aroma featured rich malty spices with a strong caramel tone, paired with a mix of earthy and oak hops, along with a subtle hint of vanilla. The taste featured a strongly bitter oak character with some lighter sweet caramel malt with a good deal of spice and perhaps nutmeg. The body was wet and watery with a very lively fizz and high carbonation along with a presence of alcohol at the finish and a lighter, thinner mouthfeel. Thank you Tom and Tracy for the delicious Christmas present!
