3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A clear, dark amber beer topped by a small, creamy beige head. The aroma is lightly roasted, with dark dried fruits, coffee and some chocolate. Some metallic hints. Roasted, coffeeish flavor with hints of chocolate. A little bitterness too. Full to medium body, dry on the palate, with a very soft carbonation. Lasting roasted and coffee-ish finish with a solid dose of dark chocolate. Overall, sure a fine mild, easy drinkable and tasteful. 131228

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle: BB 23 Jan 2014. Poured into two old íHome Alesí badged Countryman glass tankards on 6 Sep 2013 (the wife wanted half).
Looked fine: dark mahogany body with a full head of off-white foam.
The aroma is all malts, slightly burnt and full on dark chocolate.
Taste wise it is also a chocolate malt lead, but it isnít that simple, there is a lot more going on. Nutty and woody, some hidden spiciness and always a semi-sweetness being suppressed by the hop content.
Very drinkable and a pleasant change from all the golden brews I seem to be having at the moment.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bit of chocolate somewhere in the mix. Some sips are a bit rank and others are reasonably reasonable. Fizzy and thin. Is it rare if you can get it in many supermarkets? I donít want to know the answer.
