3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It pours a clear, sparkling dark chestnut body under a creamy, fingerthick off-white head. Nice curtains. There’s a faint touch of cooked vegetables in the aroma, with raisins and prunes, some caramel and a little roasted note. The flavor has a very nice bitterness, keeping the sweetness under control. An easy task actually, as it’s a quite dry beer. Pleasant carbonation level, soft and full-bodied on the palate. Some roasted malts in the back. Lasting roasted, caramel finish with a very fine bitterness. Except for the touch of dms in the aroma, a very fine brew. 140921

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich, "warm", dark/caramel malt aroma. Nice brown color that turns reddish mahogany using halogen. The beige head went up well, but down fast. Medium in body and rather creamy in carbonation. There are medium dark roasted malt tastes, some nuttiness, and arguably a bit of grassy hop. Maybe a chocolate lilt. Just grabs the mouth. The finish is slightly earthy, not all that sweet considering the malt is there, and there is still a light bitter. A pleasant sort of neutral finish. HB does seem to make good beer.
