3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Brown, reddish hue. Dark bready caramels, dark fruits, some syrupy notes. Bit of an abbey dubbel- feel. Med light body. some sweetness, but not oily not cloying. Pretty nice really. Herby hops, brown malty. I rather like the balance here. One of the better brown ales I’ve had in awhile. Tasty, but without being too big.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 330 ml bottle.
Opaque, dark brown with a khaki-tan head and very good lacing.
Aroma of toffee, currants, nuts, dark fruit, English hops, caramel and tangerine.
Taste of red currants, raisins, nuts, chocolate, English hops, caramel and Mandarin orange.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
Definitely on the sweet side, yet with a significant hop presence for a brown ale. Lots of fruit too. The result is rather tasty, well-balanced hoppy brown ale.

Dark brown color with white medium lasting head. Aroma is hoppy, with brown sugar and sweet malts. Taste is less intense and not as hoppy as the aroma; sweet malts and caramel. Finish is halfway between bitter and sweet.

Pretty boring brown ale. Some hop aromas and flavors with some coffee malt flavors. Meh. Pretty standard.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I really enjoyed this. It’s a lovely purple red colour, with a head that dissipates very quickly. Medium body. The aroma, and then the taste, is like a fruit punch or (my wife tried it to confirm I wasn’t going mad) sangria. The malty finish is then nice and dry.
