Damn this is good and I’ll tell you why. I love dark fruit flavors. Big time prune flavor. Very very strong flavors of chocolate, caramel and coffee. super duper tasty!. A hair too much carbonation. Bitter aftertaste that lingers. Smoke and peat. When I drink this beer I am transported to England.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/10/12
Aroma: The nose is fairly subtle, roasted coffee and chocolate malts, and a little toast
Appearance: This beer pours a dark brown-black color without much head or lace
Flavor: The taste is light-medium sweet, with a good amount of roasted flavor, and a mild bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, though it leans light for the style, with a soft carbonation, and a mild dryness
This one was another solid one from the beer camp series, but it wasn’t a top of style example for me. Still though, this is a good one, and definitely worth trying.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from Beer Camp box set. Poured a dark brown color with a medium sized, creamy tan head. Aroma was plenty of roasted malts, milk chocolate, cocoa, and some oat, cereal notes. Flavor was pretty great - oat notes, with plenty of malts, milk chocolate. Alcohol is really well masked here. Perhaps a little rough around the edges, but really enjoyed it.
