2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Red brown coloured with an off white head.
Aroma of berries and malts with notes of caramel.
Weird flavour of berries with hoppy notes and some strange bitter notes.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright from the conditioning tank.
Deep amber almost brown colour. Dense appearance with juiciness and richness. Spicy malt flavour with mature hop complexity. Nice but too strong to be session beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark with plenty of aroma and bitterness. Fairly strong. The bottles condition well and the drink seems to improve further with time in the bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2003 Strange mix of Biere de Garde and English real ale. Very hoppy in aroma and flavour but with a buttery malt background, deep red brown in colour with low condition and a dry finish. Comes in a 750ml corked bottle like a Biere de Garde and is bottle conditioned.
