3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very nice dark amber. A nice white head can be quite thick, but fades quickly. The aroma is of toffee and toast, with an enticing sweetness. It tastes of sweet toffee, roasted malt and dried fruit and nuts. Would benefit from some bitterness at the finish and a heavier mouthfeel, but like most Squire beers it is a very worthy drop

Bottle. Aroma is mostly caramel, light spicy hops. Sneeze inducing - weird. Taste is... well this is clearly overcarbonated. I can not sense a thing, sorry.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This used to be their best beer before the huge sell out and when there wasn't much else on the market to compare. The porter has taken it over. It looks good with a clear caramel complexion and light tan frothy head. Very subdued malt aromas. Pleasant malt flavours and a touch of gentle citrus flower on the end of the palate. Simple beer for knocking back straight out of the bottle and not thinking too much about it.
