3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a medium brown with a large rocky off white head that was mostly lasting and had excellent lacing. The aroma was of toasted malts, a leathery yeast and a slight herbal hop with notes of molasses and coffee. It tasted lighty sweet and sour at first and ended slightly bitter with a strong hint of coffee and a slight alcohol finish that lasted a short time on the palate. Mouthfeel was medium in body and oily in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall a tasty abbey ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy brown beer with a thick, bubbly head. Aroma is rich and fruity though you can also smell the strength of it. Fortunately given the strength it’s one to savour than to guzzle anyway as it’s really quite sweet. Not especially sickly, the fruit flavours are quite natural rather than it being a sugary mess, but there’s a proper tanginess to it when you first have a swig. Quite light in spite of everything though.
