Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 27, 2014
A lively critter this one with more of a tawny port body than ruby, a vigorous coarse cream coloured head and a little haze. The aromas suggest elderberries and herbal fruitiness which is more evident in the flavour. It is lipsmacking and tasty but probably best from nearer Staffordshire than in New Zealand, but still a charming, characterful ale.

hohops (798) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
Bottle. Appearance- very dark ruby/brown. A beige head which lingers. Aroma- toasty, nutty, hint of brown sugar, malty, yeast hints, wholemeal bread. Taste- medium to full bodied, not much bitterness, smooth, dark malty taste is prominent, then sweet raisins come through in the finish. Hints of toffee and caramel. Satisfying and a bit hearty- very good.

Bottle. Deep Burgundy red. medium head. Aroma of burnt malts. Taste is slightly smokey roasted malts, hint of chocolate and a touch sweet. A little too watery on the palate and carbonated. An interesting beer, I quite like it.
