3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at GBBF 2012. Deep brown colour. Slightly boozy malt aroma. Taste is very smooth, malty, caramel, toffee, slightly sweet. A bit fuller of body than some of the traditional English brown ales. Well made and enjoyable, if not super exciting.

Cask at CK. Pours a clear, deep maroon with a dwindling beige head. Nose is twizzlers and white grape juice. Taste is watery, sharper nutty bitterness, cloying white grape juice and heavy cherry juice box. Sugary, bland, odd bitterness.

Medium bodied, dark, mocha flavored with a little hoppy kick. Very flavorful with a nice head. One of my favorite beers. A shame they stopped bottling it.

On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours a dark brown with a small light tan head that has good retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The nutty toffee, earthy hops, and a bit of caramel. The taste has a light sweetness with a bit of nuttiness and toffee. There is also some caramel and a bit of earthiness. The finish has a hint of bitterness and a little sweetness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Descent brown ale. I think I like this one a little more than Tumbler.

Bottled, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Light chestnut with off white short head. Sweet caramel flavours straight off, sucrose with a hint of maple syrup. Thin on the palate though. A bit of a strange one.
