3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Aikman’s Cellar Bar, St Andrews. Dark brown, huge white head. Aroma is somewhat spicy, malty, chocolatey. Mouthfeel is over-carbonated to the extreme, tastes chocolatey, cocoa malt, wheat, nice slow bitter finish. Would be better if it weren’t for the bottle carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a huge pale tan rocky head with an extremely tight bead. Like a moca shake. Deep brown and surprisingly clear for a hefe Weizen. Light bready nose with just a hint of banana phenol. Very low chocolate, hardly there, I was looking for more along with a more pronounced banana bread palate. Borderline sweet. Nice easy drinking beer that was a hit with my novice beer drinking friends but lacking phenol-ester and chocolate and/ or toasted malt complexity that are hallmarks of the style. So mild this could almost pass as an Alt

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(06.17.06) On Tap at Firkin, Libertyville, IL. Poured black opague with giant off-white head. No discernable carbonation. Sweet malt and hop aroma. Medium bodied beer that starts dry with caramel flavor. Finished dry with light malt fade. Although watery and thin, this is a decent beer that went well with a chicken quesadilla.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle picked up at Morrissons, Aylesbury 8th August 2006, and drank this in a field at Cropredy, Fairport Conventions Cropredy Festival Thursday 10th August. This was another of my beers that I had to drink straight from the bottle having forgotten to take a glass into the field. It looked very dark in the bottle, and I could detect a nice malty rich and roasty aroma, there was some nice maltiness in the taste along with a bit ofn yeast as well, even a bit of fruit there. Pretty good beer all things considered.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours a clear dark brown with a slightly lacy tan head. The aroma is light, with a bit of cloves and roasty malt. The body is light, with medium fine carbonation. The taste is subtle for a dark beer, with a bit of spice, fruit, and just a hint of coffee. This is the "lightest" dark beer I’ve sampled so far.
