Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy reddish dark amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose has some nice toasting to it with just a hint of caramel coming through. Taste isnít sweet, and has a nice dry bite to it that really highlights the toasting. Nice drink.

Bottle shared by oRos. Pours hazy amber with a rich fluffy beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a hearty brown malt flavor that is pretty bitter for an English Ale. Very tasty.

Nice, balanced beer. I shall not complain. Nothing calls itself out here, but nothing says donít drink this beer, either.

Nice roasted malt character, with a little hops and alcohol and a smooth drinkability that stood out even amongst some really nice brews. Good strong ale, though I liked the very itg a little more."

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear dark amber under a sticky lacy light beige head. The aroma is earthy nutty with a dark malt syrupiness with a odd but very welcoming herbal background. Nice flavor of Rosemary and some sort of herbal tone with some earthy malt tones, light nuttiness, a little Yrba Mate tea, and a light touch of earthy resiny hops on the finish. A little herbal for my liking but balanced and nuanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice wooden barrel scent comes to the forefront at first sniff. Lots of dark goodness in here, all blended seamlessly. Pours dark brown/ruby with creamy beige head and sticky lacing. Taste is smooth, rich, slightly spicy, roast grains, toffee, peat, pipe tobacco. Nice gingerbread lingering on the palate afterwards. Really nice!

22 bomber, brown pour with a finger of head. Malty all the way through with a tinge of spice. The malts overpower the hops in this one, hard to tell if they are even in there. Still pretty good overall.
