backlog review. Bottle, pours chestnut with medium sized beige head. Carbonation is medium, Nose is milk chocolate, lightly roasted malt, caramel, and brown sugar. Flavor is similar to aroma with caramel malt, roasted malt, and some bitter hops rounding out the profile. Nice brown.

Hazy dark brown colour, firm light beige head. Fruity aroma, caramel, toast, raisins, light coffee. Light bitter flavour, quite sweet, coffee and fruity notes. Finish caramel and coffee, quite fresh. I’m not a fan of brown ale as a style, but I quite love this one!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma has earthy hops, raisins, some alcohol. Rich mouthfeel with lots of malt and juicy hops. Finish has caramelly hops with medium bitterness and something creamy. Nice but the aroma is occasionally a bit sharp. Too expensive to have more than once - offerings from Fullers and some others provide much better value at the same level of quality.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy, opaque, deep brown pour with two fingers of beige head that has some staying power. Roasty and spicy on the nose with some nice fresh accents. Toffee and nuts. Has a bit of a cola nut feel on the palate with some nice spicy underpinnings and enough warmth and bitterness to keep it interesting.
