4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle 7% Bb 10/2014 served in a stemmed tulip glass in Ohakune, NZ
Pours clear, deep reddish-amber color with a creamy and durable light brown head. Excellent lacing.
Sweet malts, caramel, medium roasted malts and hints of wood, dark fruits.
Flavor: unexpectedly smokey, given that this didnít show in the nose. The peat smoke is fairly well matched by the complex malt blend. Hints of licorice, toffee, raisins and dates.
Feel: smooth, medium-full body. Excellent soft carbonation.
O: a hearty recommendation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle. Unclear deep red copper, foamy tan head settles and fades. Rich dark malt aroma. Dark roast sweet malt taste, toffee, caramel, dark fruits, treacle. Soft carbonation, medium-full bodied, moderately hopped. Dark fruits tarten a bit as it warms towards a vinous port-like finish. Really good but DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)
