3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2014 21/10/2014 first time Iíve had to relate a beer because it has everything that was missing last time rated. This time round it is smooth, full flavoured, really pleasant chocolate toasty malty notes. Itís a great beer this time round. Wondering if th huge difference is because this one is tap not bottle? Very good and worth a re-rate
22/9/2012There are parts of this I enjoy others I really really donít. Its more than a wee bit thin for me. There is no head or carbonation it seems flat and even though there is a nice roasty malt, chocolate after taste it is missing that rich in depth roasty maltieness that is nice with a brown ale. Not sure what all the hops are contributing but not really getting it. The ABV is nice enough though, bought as a night cap and thats what it is doing.

bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. pours a dark murky brown with a thin tan head. aroma is strong citrus with hints of resin, chocolate and coffee appearing in the background. Body is full and carbonation is moderate. taste is citrusy and resinous with hints of bitter coffee and burnt toast. enjoyed this a lot!

Pours a deep chocolate, with a decent head. Sweet confectioners chocolate on the nose and a hint of biscuit. Big roasted notes on the palate pushing through chocolate and coffee, with a drying almost tannic finish. Quite bitter helping a long finish. Carbonation is a little high but good stuff

Lovely dark chocolate colour with an off white quickly dissipating head. Hints of coffee and biscuit on the nose with a beautiful, smooth, rich coffee and chocolate taste. This beer is really smooth. I love it.

From a bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a thick lasting tan head, laces well, huge malty aroma with a hint of spice, roasted malt flavours and a medium bitterness on the back palate. Great beer.

Works out as a bitter English brown ale with Belgian yeast flavours and dark coffee-chocolate and caramel in the mix. Enjoyable for winter.

Big rich roasted nutty flavours. Has a warming feeling. A nice change from a style that I typically find watery and bland.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Way over carbonated, beer went everywhere upon opening too. Was excited by appearance and aroma to be hugely let down by taste and palate. Extremely bitter, none of the smoothness suggested by other reviewers. Must have been a bad bottle - undrinkable.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dark brown colour with thin-medium tan head. Slightly sour cocoa nose. Citrus trying to come through, but is masked by the malt. Taste has nice complexity. Bitter chocolate with bread and dark toffee. Coats the palate nicely and has a lingering finish. Itís something different, but maybe not to my tastes.
