3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A tasty English strong with a delightfully complex character or Raisin and malts with deeper but mellow oakish notes.
Clear amber with just a little head, this crafty brew earns its name

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought at OP. Pours in hazy dark amber body with almost no head. Aroma is malt sweetness, with dark dried fruits in the background. Taste is sweet with oak and caramel notes. Medium biterness in the after-taste, long lasting. Alcohol joining the party as well. Body is medium with high carbonation.

Well, this is certainly in the speckled/tooth neck of the woods, taste-wise. A bit more oomph than Hens’Tooth though and a bit more sweet sugary malt. I like this quite a bit but it is a departure from US style beer.

Malty, earthy woody. Medium body. Typical strong English ale. Not bad, but nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 bottle. Dark amber color with a reddish hue, completely clear with a creamy, off-white head on top. Looks pretty well but lacks proper lacing. Typical bitters aroma with dough, some alcoholic scents and an unusual touch of oak and vanilla. Taste is somewhat spicy, mix of malts and hops, a tad of dough and vanilla accompanied by some hoppy bitterness. It is somewhat dry but not to a fault. Medium body, smooth texture and a carbonation heavier than expected. Finish has more character and strength than the rest which is already rather robust. Overall the beer is a good example of its kind, similar to the Old Speckled Hen but not exactly as easily drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rich amber. Nose of some vanilla. Taste of some raisin, vanilla and malt. Maybe a little on the boring side, but good.
