3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, from York Beer Shop. Deep red brown almost black. Thin off white head and gentle condition. Starts off with a thick barley wine aroma that mellows quickly to leave a beefy roasted malt note and some sweet burnt toffee. Mouthfillingly sweet and malty in the mouth with a gentle smokiness and some fruitiness. Finish is long and roasted with some chalkiness and a suggestion of wood.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark cola brown coloured beer with a thick off white head. A light burnt sugar, caramel dark malt aroma with hints of raisiny dried fruit. A dry mouthfeel. A bitter taste, full of caramel malt elements, fruity, raisiny, all a little but like a rich fruit cake! The richness carries on into a slightly sweet finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle from Morrisons, Bracknell. A attractive deep reddish chestnut colour with a thick creamy beige head; the aroma has some raisins and demerara sugar, and also some damp earth; the mouthfeel is creamy with a complex blend of flavours - some bittersweet chocolate, some purple fruit, coffee and raw cane sugar, all balanced by a pleasant bitterness; and rounded off by a dry, warming, nutty finish. Rather good.
