3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle from The Beerhive.
Creamy off white head with great lacing. Body is very dark brown with a hint of ruby. Very sweet nose, the tablet comes through. Flavour is caramel, some dark fruit, toasted malt and just the slightest hint of tonic wine. Big mouthfeel, quite chewy with light carbonation, sticky on the finish. Wasn’t sure what to expect with the tonic and tablet but it works brilliantly.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 5.3%, Appellation Wines drunk in Norway. Pours dark brown with areddish tint and a cream head. Nose is lightly roasted and had a sweetness seemingly from the tablet as well asa slight shoe note that may be from the Buckfast. Taste has more of the same with a almost coffee dryness. The sweetness and sourness is not well matched with the dryness. Medium body. Not to my taste, but reading about Buckfast was fun.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 5.3 % abv, from Nina’s Mini Market. Black body with a brownish tint. Frothy, light brown head. Good amount of lacing. Mid-sweet, dark malty nose. Slightly smoked malty aroma, salty notes balanced by a chocolate touch. Dark fruity tartness towards the ending. A well balanced malt-accented brew (hotel room, Edinburgh 10.08.2013).

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Royal Mile Whiskies. It pours darkest brown with a medium beige head. The nose is roasty, dark fruit, berry, grape juice, light jamminess, toffee and faint smoke. The taste is toasty, earth, coffee, dark fruit, spice, vinous, toffee, light bitterness, charred wood and some smoke with a very dry finish. Light-medium body and average carbonation. Interesting and enjoyable. A bit more body and this could be great.

500ml Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours dark brown with tan head, good lacing. Aromas are sweet caramel and light roast. Taste has more sugar, but the bitterness is not quite sufficient to balance things out. Enjoyable beer though.

Cask @ Cloisters 
More tonic wine in the nose...Taste more intense and smoother than bottle...richer body.....yum yum 3.6 to 3.8
Bottle from Beer Hive, Edinburgh  7/4/7/3/15
Dark caramel ruby brown, big frothy tan head, good lacing
Aroma of caramel, some soft roasted malt, dab of smoke, some raisin, soft dark fruits, background of sweet malts, some charred toast
Taste of caramel malts, fruity red berries, soft roast, soft toffee, dab of smoky wood, getting a hint of the tonic wine with the fruitiness, subtle smoke is good as I’m not a fan of really smoky beers, not sure where the tablet is but prob just adds some sweetness, additions are subtle, good flavour, some very soft bittter hedgerow hop in there, fairly complex
Palate - Medium carb, little over fizzy, thin to medium body - a tad thin. Palate is quite sweet, with some soft roast bitterness. Finish is quite dry, fruity malts, dab of burnt smoke, getting some chcocolate now, clean finish
Overall - Decent 80/- and the additions of tonic wine works well and isn’t gimmicky. Would like to try this cask and see it it has a bit more body
