Bottle at the Pembury. Dark colour with a small beige head. Aroma is alcohol, sweet caramel malt, but of treacle. Taste gives slight bitterness, but with a foundation of caramel malt/belgian dubbel taste. Sweet and slightly herbal. Quite nice!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home. Dark brown colored beer with a very nice deep dark red glare coming through when held into the light. Not a very nice smell in my opinion, malts, caramel and a bit musty. Taste is decent though and the carbonation is nice. Medium body. Decent beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big fiz when opening. Nice dusty brown coloured and filtered body with small tan head. Surprisingly fine aroma; malts do great with toffee, spices, pie crust and figs to complete the picture. Taste is pleasantly sweet and pretty full in flavour, even though the body is a bit thin. Good long finish carries on the same flavours, not much extra. Can’t think of any brewer with such differing quality brews. This I really enjoyed. (33cl bottle, bought on Texel)
