3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Got this as part of the company beer exchange.
Delicious brown ale with clean aftertaste. Aroma is weak and I was not expecting much from this beer after a sniff. I was pleasantly surprised! Taste is full bodied with hints of chocolate and dark malts. Light hop taste and crisp clean finish. Would drink again!

(bottle, 35.5cl) Hazy, copper to brown colour with a short and slightly tanned foamy head. Moderately toasted malty aroma with notes of caramel, nuts and a tinge of chocolate, accompanied by herbal hops. Mildly bitter and delicately sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dry-ish and mildly bready toast-malty taste with hints of toffee, traces of chocolate and herbal hoppy spice in the background; toasty and hop bitter finish with a mildly malty sweetness and notes of chocolate in the aftertaste. 01.IX.14

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep red-brown with a high, fine-grained, soft cream-colored head with lace. Lots of visible carbonation. Nose is smoke, soy sauce, sage, rosemary, toast, and oak. Really nice baking chocolate up front, followed by savory notes and a whisky or dark rum-like smokiness. Lots of substance to it; not at all shallow or thin. Finish is long with a touch of toffee sweetness. I like this style when done well, and this is definitely done very, very well.

Pours brown with a thin off-white head. Very malty on the nose; a little yeasty at first, but that settled down. Taste is sweet, like a root beer. Slight hop presence, particularly in the finish. Medium body. Mild carbonation. A little plain, but quite drinkable.
