3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Christmas Day 2012 ( ten past midnight and Iíve just finished preparing for later): I need a beer.
500ml bottle conditioned: poured slowly into an íOld Speckled Hení badged pint vase.
Nice looking brew: an off-white foaming head sat on top of reddy/brown coloured beer, sadly some of the sediment got out of the bottle so it had a slight hazy hue within the body.
Malts rule the roost: caramel nose and taste but not overly sweet. Pleasant blend of ingrediants with a bitter hop backbone running through the maltiness of the main flavours. An OK beer rather than a great brew: would happily try a cask version given the chance though.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2013 Bottled. A dark brown coloured beer with an off-white ring of head. Sour and fruity in the nose with chocolate malts. Seems a bit boozy. Sherry and oxidized notes too. The sourness isnít really welcome and itís a bit odd, but I quite enjoyed it. Score 3.1
Subsequent rating scored 1.9. Average becomes 2.5

Dark copper colour, not as dark as a "dark ale" but described as suxh. Creamy head. Aromas malty, slightly fruity. Not quite as dark or intense in flavour as expected but a reasonable bitter.
