3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22nd January 2010
Opaque black beer. Light brown head. Nice combination of malt, bubblegum and sweet apple on the nose. Palate is semi soft and semi dry. Sweet dark malt with unsweet bubblegum that slowly morphs in to something appley. Finishes semi dry and with more dark malt. Was really looking forward to this - a Cider Brandy barrel beer! The reality is the flavour is mostly malt and bubblegum. Decent enough.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown color, almost black. Aroma of chocolate, paper, ash, alcohol, caramel; initially unexciting, then getting better. Good chocolate flavor, with pleasant residual sweetness; light ashy, coffee trace; reasonable hopping, for an English beer; the final has some alcohol too. Very pleasant.

Black color; creamy head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, cheese rind, coffee, all mild. Good body strength, chocolate flavor, with light roasted malt, enough residual sweetness, salty liquorice, and an English touch that makes it more interesting. Warming alcohol. Good.

Hints of old toffee. Medium sweet flavor with some chalky cocoa, old dried dark fruits, earth. Sweet finish with some well toasted dark malts, a bit of earth, toasted caramel, more dried berries. Mild oxidation but this is still great stuff overall.
