3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy red colour with a weak, off white head. Aroma has a fruity and wine-like base coupled with some alcohol and a little caramel-ish malts. Some plums as well. The whole deal is finished off nicely by fresh hops. Taste is very sweet with berries and wine, coupled with the sweet malt. A little fresh mint and spices can are traceable as well. Also a tiny bit of smoke and faint roast, providing a modest bitterness. Some faint, dry hops in the finish as well. Low carbonation, medium-big body, medium-long duration.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
It draws you in and makes you feel like burrowing in amongst the wonders of a woodland. A beer of its place - bier de terroire. Earthy bog swamp and blackberry aromas, breaking into a treacley burnt sugar aspects with complicated mushroom and liquorice vanilla complexity. Very thought provoking. Is this an ale or a stout? How do they make this taste this way?

Light aroma of sweet malt, caramel and some floral hops. Pours a very dark brown with ruby highlights and a thin khaki head that soon dissipates. Flavor of roasted barley, sweet malt, finishes with a chocolate bitterness. Medium carbonation, robust. Little aftertaste. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A cloudy brown pour. Sweet malt, does smell a bit like malt vinegar. Tastes is not so much, but malt and sweet malt. Some raisin, woodiness. A bit thin throughout. I guess I was expecting a little bit more of an old ale, so I was a little dissappointed. Not bad, but for 6 bucks, I could have found something better.
