Clear deep red - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Smooth palate, slightly soft and semi dry. Malts are smooth with unsweet toffee and a little drying. Alcohol spice. Mild skunky hops, trace of marmalade. Semi dry finish, not bad but does show the alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Blackish brown beer with a fair head. The aroma is roasted with some vinousness. The flavour is extremely bitter and roasted with a large malty port like quality. Overall a good heavily malty and roasted beer with plenty of bitterness.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear dark amber, big off-white head. Aromas of booze, toffee, resinous hops. Taste has a light booze burn, more resin hops, sweet caramel, cake mix finish. Oily texture, but a clean finish for the strength/style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours hazy red/brown with a lasting small beige head. Aroma is malty with caramel, toffee, raisin, mild vinous, hops, grass, candy and booze.Taste is moderate sweet, bitter and light acidic. Body is medium, texture is thin oily, carbonation is moderate+. Finishes dry and thin’ish with lingering bitterness. Much too bitter barley for my liking.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Drinkstore, Dublin 
Deep red ruby, clear, yellowish beige large head, good lacing and head retention for abv
Aroma of sweet fruity malts, some sweet berry fruits, candi sugar, touch of alcohol
Taste of caramel malts, soft spicy hops, toasted malts, dab of dark honey, rather simple flavours, very boozy...alcohol obliterates a lot of the flavour in this
Palate - sift carb, full body, smooth, rather sweet. Finish - quite fiery alcohol, far too much booze in the finish
Overall - The flavour needs to be much richer and intense to offset the alcohol here, far too boozy, not that enjoyable to drink
