2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Pours a dark amber with a pillowy head. I really can’t fault the appearance; the head sticks around and spins a web of lace as the glass empties. Wow... a huge malty aroma that I can’t quite get on with. Smooth caramel taste that is particularly sweet. Lands somewhere between a bitter and a barley wine without ever quite making sense. Still, worth a try.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From bottle. Looks great, pours chestnut/red/brown with thick tan head. Lots of alcohol on the aroma with some raisins and other dried fruit, tue alcohol is overpowering and unpleasant. Taste is unbalanced, lots of alcohol, some caramel malt and some dried fruit. Bitter ugly finish, not good.

500ml bottle, Sainsburys.

Little too harsh for my liking.
