750ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
Old, aged, papery aroma. Flat. Papery palate and taste. Dull. No hint of 7%, but still not a very good beer. Sticky and mashy and malty.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at ChrisO Snow Tasting, thanks to Leighton. It pours deep ruby-brown with a small off-white head. The nose is candy cane, caramel, wood, spice and earth. The taste is wood, earth, spice, candy, cola, leather, orange peel, tinned peach, plum, prune and raisin, with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Perhaps a bit thin for the style and fairly unexciting.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thick-set light-brown head over cola-coloured beer. Initial strange, acetic-sourish nose, thinning and reverting to both cola-like and sweet molasses odours, bready, coloured malts. Again pretty sourish in the flavour, if more lactic-like; then classic sweet & bready, melanoidin flavours. Sticky, medium to well-bodied. Strange sourness keeps popping up, even in the MF, thinning the texture after all. I agree it might do well with roasts, as the label suggests. But as such...
