3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby red with a thin off white head. Good retention and good lacing. Aroma is caramel, sweet malts, chocolate and hops and floral notes. Taste is slightly fruity, with caramel and chocolate. Medium bitterness at the end with some toastiness and grassy hops. Slightly sweet. No carb, medium body. I found the bottled somewhat watery but probably nicer.

Had on cask in Philadelphia at cellar temp. Almost no aroma, but a great caramel and estery taste. If you see this beer on cask, get it.

Une valeur sûre dans un pub anglais quand on ne sait pas quoi prendre. A goûter au moins une fois :)

A pretty safe bet, always in draft in one of my local pubs and I'd be sad too see it go.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Green Lion, Malmo. Poured a clear dark amber with a thin white head. The aroma is light hop fruit. The flavour is medium bitter with a rich fruit malt light hop bitter palate and a short bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Served a little cool but that didn’t do it much harm. Better in the cask than the bottle!

Smells of chocolate and fruity vanilla. Almost see through but very dark brown in colour. Clean and flat on the tongue. Really pleasant tasting.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A malty, chocolate, and perhaps a hint of caramel scent, but subdued. Medium bodied with a lack of carbonation. A unique, but not very satisfying taste. Malt, roast, chocolate, cream, and mild dried fruit, but far too smooth. Absolutely no hop at all. Tastes akin to a water downed chocolate milk.
