4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Quite frankly one of the best dark ales I’ve ever tried. The depth of flavour is simply stunning and although complex is not crowded on the palate.
Roasted malt gives way to liquorice and christmas fruits and finally the rich apply taste of the cider brandy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a deep black color ale with a small light brown foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of black chocolate and caramelized marshmallow is quite unique and interesting. Taste is malt heavy with notes of lightly caramelized marshmallow with some black chocolate and some roasted malt. Body is about average with a light creamy texture with some good carbonation. Interesting beer that doesn’t really fit into one style in particular.
