This beer looks beautiful, it has a ruby-like caramel color with low carbonation. It smells sweet like berries, nuts and caramel and also bitter like coffe or tobacco. The head is light brown with a good lacing. Really nice!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky chestnut body with a modest, loose and short-lived beige head. Strong malty aroma of fresh wort, pleasant fruity English malt, notes of tobacco and black tea, and lots of earthy, organic tones. Flavor is of well-caramelized malt and tart plums. Has a nice full-flavored blend of light sweetness and notable tart and bitter qualities. Palate is lighter than anticipated given the ample flavor. A nice, complex but reasonably light drinking beer.

Bottle. Dark black color with an average frothy light brown head that lasted. Heavy roasted malt and toffee aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture. Flavor is a heavy sweet with a light bitter finish of long duration. Very good brew.

Darkbrown reddish color, very short-lasting tanned head. Smells of red grapes/ red wine and oak. Tastes of thinned red wine, small hint of caramel and oak.. if it werent for the foam, i wouldnt call it beer... Very nice palate though, gentle and soft.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark, dark brown - almost black. In fact, it poured a bit like a cola. Sweet berry fruits in the aroma, along with licorice. On tasting I could detect some burnt toffee, with a whiskey feel coming through on the aftertaste, probably from the oak. There is some shallow bitterness, but it seems to be layered on top rather than integrated, and a sweetness that seems to contrast rather than complement. A medium body, and average carbonation. I was hoping for a little more from this, as it didn’t live up to the aroma and tasted a little artificial.

500ml bottle from Morrisons. Pleased to find this one lurking on the shelves. Reddish brown colour with a good depth of flavour and slightly sweet finish. Not really a beer to drink lots of but a nice treat.
