3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle at home, poured into a Guinness pint. ABV 4.2%
Beautiful coloue, a deep ruby red or maybe a light amber brown, however you look at it, against the light or not, it has some really attractive hues. One finger of off-white head, soapy, eith good retention and medium lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of caramel and toffee, light roasted malts, cookie dough.
Taste is of malts, red fruits, quite bitter from the beginning, with good, long duration. Caramel again, less toffee now, a touch of mildly bitter coffee on the aftertaste.
Medium thin body, nice carbonation.
Overall pretty good bitter!

Dark copper color with a thin off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and hops. Flavor is almost the same as the nose but with notes of nuts and chocolate. Nice low carbonation with a medium to high body and a long roasted malt and bitterness mouthfeel. good one.

The taste is toasty, earth, wood, leather, light bitterness, nut and caramel with a clean, dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A classic, well-executed bitter.

Bottle. Dark amber, like well brewed tea. Thick offwhite, light tan head. Malt smells, some tea, some caramel, some nuts. Bready and caramellic in the mouth with a nice amount of bitterness. Very "solid" drink this, with some nice warm roasty malts and bitters.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber with a bit of a tan head. Noses of hops and malts but rather unspectecular. Acidic, medium bitter, bit watery light slick texture. Finish is rather quick.
