pint.9 oz bottle pours a walnutty brown into my guinness pint glass. mild aroma of malt, toffee, roasty figgy fruit and lightly spiced, though it doesn’t seem to have any actual spice added. minty flavor, very delicately balanced and quite nice and smooth for 5.5%. medium-bodied, but any more and it would be sticky; any less and it would be weak. i like this very much.

Rich, heady nose. Pours very dark amber with a firm cream head. Flavour is complex with dark notes being balanced by some vinous, sherry-like sweetness. Finish is pleasingly astringent on the back of the tongue, with a lingering citrus and honey malt. Very nice indeed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark red beer with a thin, foamy head. The aroma is slight and sweet and the flavour is heavy malt and fruit but with a nice sharp, bitter aftertaste which balances it out very well. A very nice seasonal beer.
