3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nice surprise - lots of character, very full-bodied and surprisingly fruity for a brown ale. Good kick of bitterness with chicory notes.

330ml bottle into glass. Acidic malt aroma. Opaque dark brown beer with scummy off white head. Medium body with slight zingy feel. Toasty malt finish, slightly acidic. Not the best, one is enough.

Keg - Poured a mahogany brown with slight red hues and a lasting, creamy off-white one-finger head atop. Nutty, toffee malts with some dark fruit tang and a dark choccy, coffeeish bitterness. Light to medium body, medium carbonation with a medium intensity, moderate length bitterness in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was the first dark ale I ever tried and so I have a soft spot for it but have gone on to enjoy other beers more. It has a pleasant aroma of roasted malts and caramel when you first open the bottle, however it has little aroma in the glass. It pours a dark orange/brown with a medium tan head that fades, with some lacing in the glass. It has a rather thin feel as you drink and a simple but very pleasant taste of roasted malts. My overall score may be a little biased.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty subdued for a dark ale, smooth and easy to drink, pretty high carbonation without much head retention, not bad, prefer a bit more oommf, tho admittedly haven’t yet gained a taste for stout or the burnt characteristics and in this one it is a bit subdued for better or worse. A little fruit in the aroma, lets say guava and pomegranate.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cola brown with small head. Minimal aroma - some dark fruits, toast and honey. The taste is roasted malts, honey, with some nuttiness in the finish. Too thin, seems watered down. Not too bad though.
