3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Dark brownish red, nice colour but also no head. Aroma is not strong, some faint dark malts. Taste is fuller, but not especially strong, some dark malt and molasses sweetness. Body was a touch watery. Overall, very English, a strong brown/red or light barley wine. Drinkable and a little uncommon, but not exciting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013-04-27. Crisp dark amber body, small off white head. 3++ Aroma is malty, sweet with drier accents. Flavour is fairly malty, sweet. Accents of molasses sweetness contrasts with mild brown ale like toasty malt. Finish is sweet then fades into dryer malt. Smooth average plus palate. Enjoyable, relatively simple but pretty tasty. On tap at Reservoir, Waterbury.

Darker pour. Some caramel notes. Pretty straightforward. Not very strong at all and definitely on the malty side.

Tap pour - @ JJ. Pours dark brown with thick, full tan-white head, ladtong and good retention. Plum, currants, and sweet malt grape on the nose. Tastes of maple, brown sugar, roasty malts, cocoa, and slight yeasty notes. Very good. Yum.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle in an English pint. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and doughy malts plus a light hoppiness and a little toffee. Flavor the same with a lot of malts. Average to smooth texture. An interesting beer but there’s something that’s a little off.

definitive 5 in the palate it is creamy and foamy with small bubbles and a nice easy burn. good pudding like vanilla egg sweetness with a custard aroma i just liked the hell out of this brown ale. no gravy and a cheery light sweet finish.

Pours a dark reddish brown. Aroma of syrup and chocolate malts. Taste is syrupy sweet up front with a little spiciness in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong malty, candy scent, but without that dark fruit character of most other malty beers. Bitter and sweet, caramel, raisin bread, brown sugar, but stopping well short of sticky sweetness. Interesting.
