3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (from Sainsburys). Red brown colour. A malt focussed beer - some toffee with toastier flavours just edging into the coffee and chocolate spectrum. Quite dry and light with a hint of hop towards the end. Fairly pleasant but I found this somewhat unsatisfying as the nice aroma and first taste doesnt follow through in the rest of the beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours a drak reddy/brown colour with good sized off white head. Very interesting and tasty beer some pleasant soft maltiness but with fruit and hints of a bitter dark chocolateness. Really enjoyed this.
