3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Brown in colour, slightly hazy, small beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, chocolate, toffee and light hoppiness. In taste roasted malts with light mocha and herbal bitterness. Medium to low body, bit watery, rather low carbonation, finish is surprisingly quite dry and roasted.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle of No. 3. 5.1% ABV indicated. Consumed on BB date.
A: Dark but clear cola brown with pleasing ruby-brown highlights and a modest size light tan head. Good retention and spotty lacing.
Aroma: caramel and chocolate malts with a hint of spicy hops.
Flavor: Roasted malts dominate but spicy hops are evident. Hints of pepper, chocolate and toffee.
Feel: near medium bodied but seems slightly watery. Smooth. Medium+ carbonation.
Overall: Better aroma than flavor.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Almost clear, deep ruby-amber coloured, small stable off-white head; toasty-caramelly and a bit fruity-vinous nose; mild bitter flavour with a hardly detectable residual sweetness, pretty light bodied and surely not soft; slightly lingering dryish, but pretty watery toasty-caramelly finish. What an euphemism to call this pretty watery porter "rich"...

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of soft malts tempered by heavy carbonation. Has a good big head and dark ruby body. Flavour is soft malt and barley with caramel hints. Kind of sugary. Just adequate and not interesting.

Butekja 500ml. Ciemby kolor mahoniowy z rubinowym refleksem. Piana palona mala szybko zanika. W zapachu palone slody kawa karmel lecz bardzo umiarkowane. Wodniste. W smaku palone slody lekka ziarnistosc karmel kawa. Trudno orzec czy to niedorobiony porter czy przepalone i za slodkie bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark red beer with an off-white head and a malty fruit aroma. Flavour follows the same pattern. Sharp on the tongue with fruit (maybe apple with some berry-type flavours) and a bit of hearty malt. Aftertaste is a touch watery but it’s thoroughly drinkiable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by Theydon_Bois in our hotel room over RBWG. Thanks, Cloin, for making our dude-infested love nest a little more special! This beer is from a town called Cleobury Mortimer, which is fucking hilarious to me. Pours a cloudy reddish orange with a medium off-white head that settles into a ring while lacing the glass. Toasted malts, with leaves, muddled fruits, and dry grains. Light-medium bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a malty, bland mouthfeel.

Bottle at RBWG 2016. Thanks Theydon. Nose is light chocolate and faint coffee. Light brown pour with red highlights. Small white head. Taste is chocolate with a faint roast finish. Not bad. Light butter.
