1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Over carbonated in the bottle. Nice color and creamy white head. Flavors are very subtle but lacks the spiciness typical in English ales. Kind of woody aroma. Although some spicy notes are subtle.

Not living up to their ’Son of A Peach’ status. This one failed to meet the mark of a good conversation brown.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz undated bottle served in a pint glass (from July 2011 tasting notes).
Pours a dark mahogany brown with a modest of white head that quickly reduces to a ring and a few thin ’islands’. Slightly hazy.
Somewhat weak but pleasant aroma of mixed malts, slightl floral and nutty. The mixed malts comes through in the flavor which seems to have several varieties: perhaps most obviously, chocolate. Nutty, with hints of coffee and hops in the ever-so-slightly dry finish.
M - medium/thin body with medium carbonation. Crisp.

Aroma is nutty, light chocolate, toasty and bready malt, dates, earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is medium hops and moderate bitterness, sweet chocolate, toasty, nutty, and bready malt with light date notes and a dry finish. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation. This is a bit over-carbonated.
