2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned at The Royal Oak, Dorchester, Dorset. Brown with off white head. Quite a heavy caramel note right fro the start with this beer, some sweetness, some boiled malt notes. Not over keen with this beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ruby brown colour. Good balance of malts, nice toffee flavour and no overpowering chocolate malt. Just about hoppy enough but not quite. Downsides: very thin and watery on the palate which wrecks a 5% malt focussed beer. Also slightly salty. I question this breweries water treatment.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep bronze, thin loose head of white bubbles; bit a fruitcake aroma; big malty flavour with sweetish toffee and dark fruit; thick, soft mouthfeel; some balancing hops, but mellow malty goodness abounds here; perhaps more of a cold weather beer, but tasted just fine in mid June.
