3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deeper brown with an average beige head. Aroma is more heavy and malty, consisting of caramel, nuts, fig, and some slight spice notes. Roasted. The taste is pretty much what I was expecting from the nose. It is more nutty here and the I do get a bit more spice, especially at the end. The aftertaste is more nutty over everything else. It lasts awhile, but isn’t very strong. This is very smooth when drinking, with a medium body and some flatter carbonation. Nothing bad to report, although this one isn’t all that special.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A highly sessionable beer. Not too much in the way of aromas, but a well balanced taste of malt and hops, that refreshingly carries right through the palate.

This beer is a gorgeous dark brown with a lingering off white head. Smells off coffee and even some pine. The coffee carries over on the palate with a bitter bite at the end. Lovely beer

Very nice dark beer. Tastes like a Guinness stepped up a notch in complexity and intensity - delicious for those cold winter nights.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 500ml. A deep ruby colour with a small head. Aroma is barely detectable, but there’s some roasted malt and hop notes. Flavour is malty with brown sugar, chocolate malt, biscuit, citric hops. A moderately bitter finish. High carbonation. Nice enough but not very exciting.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Mild and hoppy with a slightly bitter aftertaste, Definitely drinkable with a bit of citrus in the back. To recommend.
