3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint+0.9. A pretty dark amber pour, limited white head arises. Very nice malty aroma, some caramel and rainin. Maltiness is not quite a prominent, there are some piney hops and spice that balance out the sweet malt. A little peaty, roast nut with some very limited red fruits. A little thin, but exteamly drinkable. Somewhat smokey or roast finish that lingers a bit. Not bad and quite sessionable if available in that capacity.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark brown/ruby. Frothy head that dissipates quickly to a thin white covering. Mid level lacing. Muted, but enjoyable aromas of chocolate malt. Nice malt flavour up front with a long smooth mouthfeel filled with chocolate and a touch of coffee. A complex hop bitterness tempers any sweetness in the mid palate, begging you to take the next sip. Perfect carbonation allowing a delicious mouthfeel. I love this style. Subtle and so typically understated English, but still full of wonderful flavour.

Pours a fire brick red with a fizzy short lasting head. Aroma of lightly roasted caramel, coffee, and salted chestnuts. Flavors of dark fruits, toffee, caramel, and spices. Maybe a hint of sweet pipe tobacco. As the bottle warms more complexities show. I like this one!
