3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a beer that eats like a meal. Thick and hearty, full of character though, chewy on the palate, with rich fruit flavors, and sweet black molasses, and perhaps a little bit of honey and toffee. Sweet and spicy in the finish.

Fairly dark golden-brown colour. Chewy, woody, molassesy aroma, with a light cherry and plum note. The body is a bit oily and still. Fairly sweet with the full range of malt flavour from caramel to toffee to whole grain bread crust. Sweet finish with a rummy accent.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear ruby, small but lasting head. Complex fruity aroma. Sweet with dense mouthfeel, near full body andnotes of toffee and molasses. There’s also a wealth of exotic fruits. Lingering salty bitter finish.

Great color on this one of dark rust. Earthy rum flavor all over the palate. Hops are there, but somewhat subdued. Excellent aftertaste filled with smokiness. Not a bad brew!
