4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer starts thick, rich and fruity. Plums, dried cherries, oranges. These aroma get more intense to the mainpart where there is a dry malty body and moderate bitterness coming in. The aftertaste has lots of dried fruit, malty bitterness and hints of grain. Very rich and intense, hints of dark roasted malt, very dry.
A great intense fruity and dry Winter Ale!! Taste much more intense than only 5.3%!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Pours a clear amber beer with a massive soapy off white head on top. Aroma is rather faint, light malty and herbal, touch of caramel. Flavor is very herbal, loads is caramel and cloves. Light cinnamon in the finish. Full bodied, despite low abv. Very nice surprise from these British friends.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2014 Bottle, pours medium amber-brown, with a short and short lasting dense white head. Aroma of yeast, fermentation, wine and malt. Moth feel is watery with medium carbonation and string bitter tang. Flavor is sweet at first but quickly turn bitter with strong hop sourness and mellow sweet malt and caramel notes in the background. It?s OK, but slightly off balance. sSlightly heavy and a bit boring. Not fun to drink nor refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle, poured into a pint.
It has a clear amber color. Forms a nice head that has very good retention and leaves nice lacing too.
Smell is quite complex: sweet malt, a bit fruity and also some liquorice.
Taste is a bit unexpected. The smell suggested a sweet brew but in fact itís bitter, resembling an ESB but more complex.
Body feels medium, crisp and dry. Good carbonation.
I expected a sweeter beer with less carbonation but that doesnít mean I didnít like it. It was a nice surprise and I enjoyed it very much.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit of a teaser. A beautiful deep copper colour with a impressive off-white head.
Well carbonated. But the mixture of fruit, roasted malt, spises and hops is missing something in the balance between the sweet and bitterness. Not that it is a bad beer, but it have the potential for a exelent beer.
