3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark brown color with a red tone. Very litlle carbonation; it’s practically flat. As a result: no head at all. Aroma is almost like wine. Rich, malty flavor with some berries. Not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark, dark brown with an offwhite head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malt, chocolate, nuts and a hint of liqourice. Tastes like it smells, but the malts dominate more. Has a fruity dimension to it. Mouthfeel could be smoother, but it’s quite enjoyable.

Brownish red, clear with nice yellow head. Hint of malty smoke in the aroma. Sweet, burned sugar malt with burned sugar aftertaste. A nice one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy brown color, hints of red with a thin, tan head. Strong aroma that is intensely earthy with caramel balancing and a nice overlay of milk chocolate...sounds nice does’nt it. Unfortunately as it warms it shows a lot of rubber band-like aromas that are akin to dead yeast cells similar to what is found in the aroma of Greene Kings beer these days. Flavor is not as good as the aroma. There is a distractijng winyness that undoes the palate. The aroma components are there but are overshadowed by the wine-like character and the thin, almost unsubstancial body. This is light, spicy, and quite flavorful for a beer of just over 4% ABV but the rubber-like, dead yeast cell really gains prominence as it warms. This probably should not have been shipped to the US. It is too small of a beer to make the trip. Overall points are high for what it could be.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy reddish brown, with a decent/deminising off-white head. Has some burnt malty aromas as well as some saltiness. Not quite balanced, but a fine choice to heavy casserole dishes.

Tastes of yeasty roasted malts, caramel and cereal with a little spice and some hops. Not my favourite class of beer but this was pretty good.
