3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The appearance is a combination of a stout and porter with a coffee and bitter aroma. A very bitter and very dry flavour. Overall a very nice dry beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[Bottle conditioned] The aroma is sweet, malty with smoked notes. The color is brown and it has a fine but disappearing head. The flavor is strong, sweet with strong notes of roasted bread, roasted malt, and a little smoked malt. A great beer - great palate for 5.6% ABV.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle conditioned. Deep chestnut colour, good creamy white head and low condition. Good aromas of hops, roast barley and chocolate. Quite sweet flavours with the chocolate dominating at the start but the roast barley returns and lingers in the dry finish, along with a warming alcoholic kick.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Deep ruby. Complex vinuous nose. Full bodied and deliciously malty with soft mouthfeel. Flowery, orangey and very bitter finish. A winner in my book!
