2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
473ml can. A "dark" ale, has the same marmite-like english yeast character of the 3 beers in their mix pack, maybe the most palatable of the 3 along with the golden, still nothing notable.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours caramel brown with a light, dissipating beige head. Aroma of molasses, malts, sweet breads, and subtle vanilla on the nose. Flavour has more molasses upfront with hints of candied sugar, hay, raisin. Light bodied and mildly carbonated. Finishes clean with a pleasant lingering hoppiness. A nice go-to dark ale.

Canít beleive I never rated this one before. Brownish pour with a fast head. Molasses and caramel aroma with a hint of sweet vanilla. Medium body a tad sweeter than expected and has a sort of light vanilla cake or vanilla cola profile. Not as bad as I thought this would be. Light and thin on texture and lasting power. P

Tangy, effervescent and sweet, dark Amber brown with barely any head. Quite a taste of candy sugar.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark ruby-black with a large light-brown rocky head. The aroma, which I really like, is of roasted malt, milk chocolate and caramel. The flavour starts with roasted malt and caramel then ends with a nutty lightly bitter taste. Nicely balanced with a good amount of carbonation.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An interesting beer, this one. For some reason Iím reminded of Guinness Extra Stout or a porter of some kind...
Appearance is a very dark brown with a decent head. Aroma is not very enticing to me - quite hopped and sharp. Taste, however is full-flavored and hearty - a solid dose of hop bitterness mixed with a deep roasted malt flavor and hints of licorice. A bit too much of a hop punch for me, but for someone who wants to try Russian stouts and the darker porters but is a bit scared too, this is a good choice. Palate is lingering, bitter, smoky and pungent.
Overall, it tastes nothing like other Brown Ales such as the famous Newcastle Brown, but rather more like a light version of a Russian Imperial Stout. Worth a shot for sure.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is molasses, caramel, rich sweet malt flavors. Slight vanilla notes. Taste is similar to the aromas with an almost chewy rich malt body with caramel and chocolate character. Very slight bitterness on finish. Appearance is a clear copper/amber body with a thin pearl head that retains poorly.
