3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341 ml bottle. Clear dark brown pour, brown highlights. Bottle gushed over (as did next one!). Inch thick pillowy tan head rapidly diminishing to persistent ring. Aroma is of sweet treacle, fresh-fallen leaves, fresh bread. Taste is of cola, racinette, followed by a strange mineral water bitterness (not hops). A bit odd as a beer, but labelled as a hard (dry) root beer this might have rated higher!

341 ml bottle purchased at the brewery in Halifax and consumed the same day.
Pours a nearly opaque, dark brown with a good tan head and decent lacing.
Malty aroma of moderate strength for style with some subtle complexity.
Flavor: more average but still caries a little complexity and a very good sweet-bitter balance.
Good, medium carbonation; medium bodied.

Enjoyed at the brewery on my trip there in late 2015. Pours a clean copper-amber colour with a beige, average head with a little lacing. Roasted malt nose with some fruitiness and sweetness. Fruity malt taste with a roasted finish. Refreshing mouthfeel with a little tartiness. Nothing too crazy nutwise, but some good roasted malts and fruitiness.
