3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Thirsty in Cambridge, drunk at home. Mid-brown, muddy-cloudy, with noticeable carbonation but no head. Smell of chocolate malt, apricot brandy and almond butter. Very nice but doesn’t hang together quite as well as I’d like. Sweet, mega-malty and dangerously alcoholic. Body is a bit weak and could do with an extra zap of carbonation. There’s a lot going on here, and it’s fun to drink. Some balance issues but that doesn’t stop it being a darn good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home in London - sourced fro the one and only Cotteridge Wines. Pours clear ruby-brown with a soft, creamy khaki head. The aroma holds a lot of grape, ripe cherry, lightly toasted brown bread. Medium to richly sweet flavour, with lots of ripe and gooey berries, more cherry and grape, some fruit punch, hints of toffee, bready malts, toasted wheat. Medium bodied with average carbonation and velvety texture. Sweet finish, lightly warming and just a little bit sticky, with more nicely rounded, ripe berries, plum, cherry, grape, slight bruised banana. Fairly straightforward, but the fruit character is quite compelling and the 8% strength is nowhere to be seen. Dangerously drinkable, for sure.

Muddy brown with thin head. Aroma has plenty of caramel malts and sweet banana as does the flavour. In the aftertaste there are hints of liquorice. Pleasant and complex.
