4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber, bought in Edinburgh.
Murky brown appearance with a nice creamy tan head. Vinous, rich aroma with some woody character. Cocoa and some fine cellar, maple syrup and fruits in the nose. Huge, complex body. Barrique and some cocoa taste, dried fruits and cellar on the tongue. Really fine!

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark caramel pour, small head disipates quickly leaving a lace around the glass, smells of berries, honey and the usual rogue yeast and maltiness. The taste mirrors the smell, mead like flavors, a touch of honey and berries dominate the taste. Not much carbonation or tannin on the tongue. Overall it’s a very interesting beer/mead. Goof flavors, very unique ale

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bought a bomber at Hangar on the wharf.
This was poured into a pint glass (actually I think that’s incorrect glassware, uh, woops, well, next time as I’m not too experienced with braggots).
The appearance was a dark brown slightly dark purple color. A quickly dissipating slim finger’s worth of white foamy head amounted to barely any lacing.
The smell had a sweet sticky depth of berry and a nice sticky sweet honey about it.
The taste was mainly sweet and carried a decent depth of honey. The aftertaste is quick and slightly misleading as it gives way to a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping quality about it. The carbonation seemed to be good for me. I’ve barely had many braggots so I’m unable to really gauge for the sty.
Overall, I say this was good to me. I liked it as a dessert. I’d probably have again.

This beer pours a dark purple like an eggplant. It has the aroma of grape Popsicles. It leads with that grape flavor and has an interesting not bad not good but different aftertaste. Very unique and surprisingly not much bite for such a high abv beer.

750ml bottle. Darker pour. Very nice braggot, nice berry character, surprisingly dry considering the abv.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a finger of head on a purple body. Interesting.
The aroma is Marionberry pie with barley. Pretty good.
The taste is quite sweet overall. Lots of Marionberry flavors and honey. Good balance though but the hops never quite make it through.
The texture is soft and a little creamy.
It’s an uncommon style and this is an enjoyable drink.

Loved it. Little tart, little sweet, dark fruit flavors, so many layers of flavoring. Strong too.
