for such a highly rated ale, i didnít enjoy this as much as a thought i might
looks good, head disappears quickly
aroma is very low-key, not strong at all, a bit sharp, some fruit and bitterness
i found the taste enjoyable, but not great. strong notes of berries, sharp fruit and bitterness
they slightly overdid the bitterness for me, but an enjoyable drink with a clean, tart taste

Pours black with a medium tan head subsiding average. Scent is light Porter yeast and fairly plain. Taste is medium dense Porter yeast and some light flavors of unusual character but mostly on the undesirable scale: caramelized sugar, mold, sour. Good anyway purely due to combination of flavor.

I get mostly cherry and cinnamon flavors, fits well on this fall day. Amazingrange of little flavors for such a simple beer, by whichI mean no extra ingredients.

For bottled beer this is very good. Loose deep beige head over a dark body. In the mouth the beer is not thin but not heavy either. Fruity initially with sweetness then burnt caramel coming through, light bitter finish. Medium lasting length of flavour.
