2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a big white head. Aroma isn’t very strong; notes of roasted malts and caramel. Taste is light sweet with a typical flavour of caramel maltiness and light roastiness. Palate is pretty light and thin and the finish abrubt. Drinkable but not in any way spectacular.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, smallish head, clear dark brown colour, aroma and flavour of caramel and dried fruits, almost no bitterness and a light sourness, Quite dull and i have a strong suspicion this bottle was not stored properly,

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown, with a tan and lasting head. Nice toffee, coffee, macaron and bready aroma, even though it’s not very rich or distinct. Pleasant light bubbly mouthfeel, fairly refreshing still. Taste has a more malt extract, brown sugar and aspartan appeal to it. Such a shame, really ruins the beer. Overall I can’t help but feel disappointed.
