3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ EG.
A lovely deep ruby-red with a fine, staying, creamy, off-white head. Lovely laces. Aroma is sweet, some slight butterscotch, light grainy, some milky chocolate. High carbonation, fair creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has a dusty malts edge to it, some caramel, light milky chocolate, a hint of cellar. Long, lingering cocoa-buttery finish with some fine dryness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chestnut with a marbled tan foam. Glace cherry and ripe plum aroma rolled in cocoa and powdered milk- sweet, but good. Fine and lactic with a pleasant squidgy blend of nectarine and orange, molasses and milk chocolate-coated raisins. Rounded, tasty stuff.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is dusty, light swampy malt with some spices, not very appealing. Flavour is strong (roasted) malt, caramel, faint fruit.
Not bad, just boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgium, 01.10.10 consumed at home 03.10.10. Pours puddle brown with off-white head. The aroma is malty but also a little meaty. Nice soft mouthfeel, med’ carbonation. Despite being 7% it’s a touch thin I feel reminding me of a fairly ordinary British Mild but on steroids, bit caramelly, but there is some oomphh..
