4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2016 Bottle: 330ml. Served at room temperature.
Pours a hazy dark brown (almost black). Head is small, foamy and tanned; mostly diminishing with no lace. Aroma is strong, sweet and malty with rummy fruitcake, dark chocolate, burnt toffee and hints of coffee. Flavour is rich, smooth and malty with rum and raisin chocolate, coffee, caramelized dates, hints of liquorice and a light earthy bitterness. Full bodied with soft carbonation, an oily texture and a long finish. Amazing stuff!

2014 release, aroma is very light, mildly wet cardboard, but then the taste is rich and figgy with a warming alcohol sweetness. Pleasant amber brown colour. Will have another of those

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours practically black with quickly dissipating head. Too dark for a brown ale but I like it that way. Aroma is subdued but toasty with a faint herbal hint. The flavour is sublime. Rich burnt toffee, faint fig, and again, something very faintly herbal.

330mL bottle. Pour a deep rich dark chocolate brown with an amazing sweet toffee molasses aroma. A rich sweet toffee flavour with some nutty molasses notes. I’d have to say this was one of the best brown ales I’ve ever had.
