3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small but reasonably persistent cream-coloured head, leaving even some lace, over deep foxy-amber beer. All kinds of cookies aromaís, with caramel and even toffee, giving mental images of Petit Beurre, Cafť Noir, biscuit and even oatmeal cookies. And a tad spicy. Taste is way drier than the nose suggests, hoppy, with even a serious hint at bitterness, tangy, which goes on for a long time. Mocha retronasal, becoming sweeter again after some warming up. Light to medium bodied, quite slick, and quite dry finish. Iím a bit... spooked indeed as how nose and flavour give each other the lie... Far from bad - would love to sample this from the cask.

Bottled 04/06/12. A dark brown coloured beer with a whitish head. A full malty aroma with coffee and husky grains. Really welcoming. Itís very tasty too and beautifully balanced in the mouth. Nice late bitterness. Crunchy malts. A bit of berry, a bit of chocolate orange and a bit of toast. This is as good a SN beer as Iíve ever had.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml Brown bottle, best before Aug 2012, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard in Oct 2011.
Looks really good, lovely red hue to its chestnut brown body a full, deep slighlty off-white head sat on top.
Hops in the aroma, was expecting a maltier smell because of the colour: the rear label does mention ía particularly fruity hopí being added at four different stages of the brewing process. Thatíll be the reason I could smell a citrusy hop presence then!
The taste however is maltier than the hops, with a roasted biscuity, toasted brown bread feel to it. There is a sharper, bitter finish after the initial malt taste, those hop obviously finding their feet towards the end of the gulps I was taking.
I was hoping for a more creamy, richer body to be honest, but it wasnít a bad beer in any way, just not as smooth as Iíd hoped for.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From Fosse. Pours a coppery red with a slim, finely lacing, just off-white lid. Aroma of rust, clove-studded oranges, underlying chocolate. Something of an unexpected US influence on the palate; bright floral hops, citrus and berries underscored with crunchy, coffee-dunked digestive malts. Bitter linger, soft condition. Berries, coffee and chocolate orange notes re-emerging attractively in the burp. Actually pretty good: barely touched the sides.
