3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 330ml bottle on 15 October 2013. Pours a cloudy amber with a biggish head which dissipates. The aroma features caramel, dark fruit and figs, Flavour wise, you get more caramel, dark fruit, brown sugar and a touch of spice. This is a bit of a sweet one, but it has enough bitterness to balance it out. Has a fullish body and is slightly over carbed. This is a nice brune, let down only by the over carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours mahogany, almost opaque (very cloudy), and has ruby highlights; the head is bone-coloured and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: raisins, dark bread pudding, lemon-juice, and coriander. The taste is medium sweet, that finishes with a light sour/sweet/bitterness; there are notes of all the previously mentioned aroma characteristics - plus some yeasty funks. The palate is medium bodied, has medium carbonation, is sticky, and has a medium finish. Overall, pretty good albeit on the light body side.

Fantastic beer. Maybe my new favourite in the style. Great carbonation, perfect amounts of licorice. Wonderfully balanced.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is toffee, dark fruits and red wine. Medium brown color, kind of fizzy for this type of beer. Sweet brown sugar flavor could be more pronounced. Silky body, middle weight texture, easy going. A mellow dub.
