3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It pours a clear, dark amber colored body and a finger-thick, off-white head. The aroma is lightly roasted and bready, some piney notes in the back. Caramel and some prunes too. Quite pleasant, in a nice way. A bit thin on the palate, soft carbonation. Dry. Roasted and caramel-ish flavor with a nice bitterness kicking in towards the end. A quite nice one, although a bit too British for my preferences. 120405

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 6.5%. Malty and nutty aroma. Small stable white head. The flavour is nutty and chalky with some alcohol bitterness. It is as if there is a bit too much alcohol for the style, but it is a good beer nevertheless.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark copper colour. The aroma is medium caramel, light fruit and there’s a promise of some alcohol as well. Toasty, light chocolate and still more medium caramel, with quite a bit more malt nuance than the aroma promised. Ok for a macrobrew.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours copper with a creamy off-white head. Nice fruity aroma with a hint of spice. Med body. Flavor is moderately dark fruit, with some floral or fruity hop. Though some spicy hop seems part of it. It’s a bit malty, but with the fruit and mild bitter it’s great to me. I was thinking it had similarity to Old Speckled Hen, then I read the deScription. It’s a very good drink. Perhaps the blending provides some complexity which is confusing me.
