Pours brown with small white head. Aroma has smooth, creamy notes of dark fruits, raisins, and a touch of toasted bread. Taste is on the malty side. Slightly roasted with lots of dark fruits, and some basic, classic hops to bitter. Medium body and carbonation with a dry ending. Overall really liked it. Not too heavy either.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells great. Not offputting.
Pours a dark brown black.
Taste is as an ale should be.
Could use more carbonation, but about right for an ale.
Overall I was not disappointed. Will buy again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with ruby red hilights. Thin slightly off-white head.
Aromas are caramel malts, and red fruits.
The tastes are an explosion of sweet caramel malts, cereals, brown sugar and juicy red fruits.
I usually like some hop presence, and I’m detecting none at all, but this is a decent brew.

Malt forward brown. Less zinginess than usual in this style. But I enjoy the malt flavors immensely. Nice sweetness at the back end.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft - Toasted malts and some light nutty notes. Dark brown with a decent white head. Toasted malts and very little else. Typical of the English style they were perusing, but not very interesting.
