3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a fairly true brown with a thick head that hung around for a little while, then faded to a thin layer. Aroma of raisins, molasses and a hop/yeast thing that had me thinking of some pommy ales. Not a bad balance in the flavour initially, but it gets a little sweet after a while, with the malt dominant and the hops nowhere to be seen (or tasted). A bit soda-like and a somewhat oily mouthfeel, the aftertaste is quite bready and satisfying. A decent, if not challenging, beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Mahogany ruby color, light head and light lacing. Nose of raisin, plum, sweet wort and clean yeast and hops. The flavor is balanced, decent body and a nice rye toasty dark bread quality. The finish is nicely balanced with some sweetness. Good dark toffee and medium grain malts.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle Pours a dark chestnut brown witha medium tan head and thin sticky lacing. Aroma was very nice sweet woody and carmely malt ensemble. Flavor I thought was lacking much of anything. Slightly roasted and dark but papery and slightly astringent. Dissapouinting after the big tease in the aroma. Feel was a bit thin and the carbonation was fairly soft. Thanks Buch Dich for this one.

Very dark brown color with a medium sized tan head. Great lacing. Big malty aroma with hints of dark fruit. Flavor is a malty and a little thin. Not something that envokes a strong reaction but rather refreshing.
