2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured very dark brown. Sweet, malty aromas with a toasty, coffee flavor to follow leaving a slight roast taste on the palate. Decent although this one had a bit of a porter style to it.

From a can. Pours like coke, not much head, mild chocolate aroma and flavours, roasted bitterness and caramel, pretty nice stuff.

I like what @adamnowek said: "Slight tropical fruit mixed with the malts on the nose. Soft and fuzzy texture. Slightly spiced taste."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep browny coppery colour with a thick tan head. Toasty, toffee, those Arnotts Malt-coffee biscuits on the nose (they don’t smell like coffee, they’re just called that because, you know, you dip them in your coffee). Big malty, toffee taste, sweet, there’s only a little bitterness. It kind of feels a little thin at first but that big malt biscuit taste carries over. I actually like this a lot more than what it’s rated as

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can, 5.5% ABV. Brown with a beige head that soon fades to a coat. Aroma of brown sugar, smoke (more traditional, huh) mocha, spices. Smells a bit unfinished really. And there’s a bit of that in the taste too, along with some syrupy chocolate (although the body is a bit on the watery side),kola and other nuts, weeds. Lowish bitterness still cuts through and it leans a little towards dry but cloying and messy. Poor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tropical punch aromas. Surprisingly strong melanoidins dominate what I assumed to be a more hop forward brown. Slight pine that hacks at the malt. Well balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is a deep brown color with a medium thick foamy light beige head that recedes steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing. Roasted malt, caramel and hops in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of smoked malt, caramel and mild earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a burnt malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance was clear ruby brown with creamy diminishing beige 1/2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are roasted barley, nut, toffee, coffee,chocolate, marzipan and fruity ester yeasts, no alcohol. Taste are soft sweet toffee, slight coffee bitterness with pale chocolate and mineral backend. Palate was soft CO2 with light- medium body, lasting English style drying finish. Overall a little thin on body and CO2 for me, but solid brown. Needs more chocolate malt?
