3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2015
550 ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.
Looks: Deep amber brownTwo finger head with crumpety light beige foam which lasted for 2 minutes. Beautiful sticky lacing with active small carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant and sweet roasted Ale malt, with strong caramel, light almonds, sticky toffee, sugar, rich chocolate, raisins, yeast and light grass.
Taste: Mid to light sweet, light-roasted Ale malt, with light roasted nuts, strong metallic, tartness, strong caramel, light toffee, molasses notes, very light red fruits, dry biscuits, yeast, fair lemon, low bitter hops and grass.
Body: Light body. Watery and dry palate.
Mouth Feel: Very malty but in a very watery body, maybe due to wheaty influence as there is potent tartness. Very strong caramel with thin red fruits, toffee, sweetness fairly light. Strong biscuit, dry low hops to round. Quite good so far.
Hoppiness: Light grass in nose, Lemon and grass in taste. Bitterness is moderate for a lasting, fairly astringent malty finish.
After taste: Very dry. Malty and fairly bitter to mouth.
Coments:After Sam Smith’s great Imperial Stout and Oatmeal Stout, I was expecting more or less greatness from this one. Well, only half really: nice head and neat roasty aroma aside, the palate is too watery thin and very dry, the empty Northern Brown Ale taste strikes again. It has the looks but only has half the substance. Decent but not worth buying again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Chestnut brown pour with moderate translucency, creamy beige head on top. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, woodchips, & a modest stale twinge somewhere in the back. Almost papery? Flavor is a bit sweeter up front, but the sweetness is quickly blunted by a dry caramel dust & nutty attack that sends you into an abrupt finish. Well attenuated, perhaps a little too well for the style. Nothing lingering in the finish. A hint of mid-palate earthy bitterness offsets the caramel malts. An okay brown ale at best; there are many others I would choose over this.
