3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Rather weak of malts, some wood and fruit aroma.
Appeareance: Pours darkest Brown with a thin head that dissipates quickly .
Taste: Malts,toffee, dried fruits, some oak and tartness, rather light and pleasant hop bitterness.
Maybe could use some extra Old 5x .
Palate: medium thick body with low carbonation.
Overall: I expected a little stringer taste and aroma.
Nonetheless a tasty and balanced brew.

Now with a new label and rebadged as Strong Suffolk Dark Ale. Oaky nose, hints of vanilla and strawberry, pear drops, rather interesting. dry and fruitcakey, baked peaches, candy sugar, winey tartness. A tad sweet in the finish, but rather interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 bottle. Very deep, dark, brown color with a medium, beige head on top. Aroma is soft and has notes of malts, caramel, earth, and some oak probably originating from the barrels. Taste has a little bit of everything, sweet malty tones, sourness, and bitter parts as well; quite strong and full of character. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is a less definitive version of the taste itself, relatively long but seems a tad watery. Overall the beer is good but its consistency and somewhat acidic taste are not something I am fond of.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Now bottled in 330ml bottle, as part of GK’s "craft" collection. The oak ageing comes through in the aroma and flavour. Initial carbonation disappears quite quickly, to leave a flat, fruity ale.
