3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep ruby almost black with a thick tan head. Aroma is molasses and also maybe a bit like a merlot for some reason. The aroma is pretty powerful so I was expecting a pretty strong flavor. It does start out with big roasted and chocolate malt taste but is balanced well with hops and isn’t overpowering.

Mahogany red with a light tan frothy head and moderate lace. Aromas of ripe fruit, roasted malt and a touch of butterscotch. Taste is that of roasted, light chocolate and ripe fruit up front, then a slight hop bitterness, more of the butterscotch, a hint of smoke/charcoal and a warming alcohol presence. Full body, lively carbonation, pillowy soft and smooth mouthfees, and caramel and lingering hop bitterness in the finish.

A cola colored body with a tan head that had mild retention. Aroma was mostly caramel malts, there was a slight bread note to it. Some herbal hops. Flavor was similar. Carbonation seemed a little high to me, other wise it was a good beer.

This beer has a traditional English character with a malty backbone supporting notes of toffee, dried fruits, and leather. It finishes dry with a mustiness from the English hops that makes the beer well balanced and easy to drink.
