2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Unlikeable Soapy aroma, and a dirty taste, but not completely in a negative sense, although the noticeably strong texture is overbearing.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thick mouthfeel; sweet malt and chewy baked fruits to taste; a sugary sweet aftertaste; a bit sickly on its own, would probably be transformed alongside a sticky toffee pudding or suchlike.
