3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small bottle. Pours dark brown with a tall beige head. Sweet roast, plenty of hops and milk chocolate in the aroma. Sweet and mildly roasty taste with coffee and lactose. A bit too sweet maybe. The coffee taste is not too well integrated - it just stands out too much, making the palate a bit disharmonic. Some people will probably love it, though.

Very tasty brown ale. Flavours of pleasant coffee backed onto subtle soft flavours of malt and slight chocolate. Over all this is a soft beer in a good way, easy going something you could sip at on a Sunday morning when feeling a little ruff.
