2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Tin Whistle, pours a hazy reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out toasted malt and light fruitiness. Flavour is very bland, with toasted malt and maybe a slight hint of fruitiness. Restrained, weak and boring. Pointless beer.

No idea how this rating system will work for me and my brews. This is my first. Nice dark ale that doesn't taste all that dark. Very little head. Lightly carbonated? Not a lot of after taste for me. Some people notice chocolate, but for some reason I don't notice the chocolate. Lightly roasted I agree with. Very easy to drink. I find my rating's will be consistent with my other beer club, which may make it confusing for some. I give it 3/5, meaning it's a good beer but I probably won't buy it again for whatever reason. If it was put in front of me, I'd have no problem slamming this 650ml bottle back.

Aroma : rich malt aroma with some light hop aroma
Taste : some dry malt character that has some licorice and bitterness at finish. The rich opening flavors do diminish alot faster than desired
Appearance : very dark amber with a fairly poorly retained head

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle pours a brown color with a small beige head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of light roasted malts with hints of chocolate and some grassy hops. Taste is light roasty malted bitterness with some grassy hop bitterness and an underlying mild chocolate sweetness. Light to medium body with some nice carbonation. I really enjoyed this ale and like the new label as well.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear dark copper, small tan head. Dark roasted malt aroma. Sweet caramel burnt malt taste, balanced with a medium hop bitterness, not much else. Finishes burnt and bitter. A ’not so mild ale’. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)
