3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malts and caramel along with some medium strength bitterness and a light fruit aroma in the background. The beer is quite earthy with a nutty smell but overall it was nice, if a little weak.
Chestnut brown in appearance with a thumb sized, foamy head that is off-white coloured and stays well.
Rich bitter malts and a hint of caramel along with some fruits and earthy malts along with a good nutty base. There was hints of grapefruit and citrus in there as well.
Smooth and with mild carbonation along with a light bitter and earthy feel to it. Quite subdued overall but it does have a nice mouthfeel.
A basic red ale though, and although one I would drink again it’s not likely to be one of my regular beer and is by no means a classic.

Brown pour with a frothy beige head and lace. Malt, hops, chocolate, raisin.
Meaty and slightly bitter with modest carbonation. Sweet from the chocolate and raisin with prominent malt characters. Good beer!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, 0.5l. Clear amber color with small creamy brownish head and average visible carbonation. Aroma of caramel, spicy hops and some fruitiness, too. Taste starts with light caramel sweetness, beer is pretty well balanced, while aftertaste is long and hoppy. Full body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
550cl ath The Garrick Bar in Belfast. Pours deep copper with a light brown head. Aroma of dark dried fruits and some roasted malt. Sweet and lightly fruity with a metallic taste and some hoppy bitterness. Medium carbonation and quite light body. A bit strange, but drinkable. Not a beer I need to try again. (2011-06-10)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle, thanks to Dan. Pours a chestnut brown colour with a good head which fades quite quickly. The nose has caramel, raisins and a background smokiness. The taste is toasty, there is a small note of chocolate and some very dry raisins.The palate medium bodied and textured and there is a very dry finish. Overall, a really interesting recipe that seems to have some characteristics of stout and some of bitter,

sour milk chocolate. Not that pleasant. Don’t know why, but not a big fan of this brewery in general

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ruby brown beer with creamy foam head. Aroma of a washed rind cheese with vinous fruits and underlying alcohol. On the taste chewy caramel malt, fermented apples and a dry sweetness. Seems more like a best bitter than a porter, which isn’t how I remember it from draught, may need to rerate. Fruity finish.
