3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2007 Dark brown with light shining through making for a reddish glow. Slightly skunky aroma, but diminishes allowing for some yeasty notes. Yeast visible in suspension. Flavours of coffee, sweet roast malt, chocolate and a caramellic finish. Sweet, with just enough bitterness to balance.
2007:Charcoal, tobacco, notes. This bottle from a special xmas pack, with a shirt and sealed into a metal container. No skunk this time.

Not much taste or smell. carmel, sweet, malty. Not what I was expecting. not a bad beer by any means, but just nothing extraordanary. I would drink again though if the mood catches me right.

Enjoyed this one while tailgating with a few guys from work. Definitely a full-bodied but well balance brew, this one pours a nice orangish/red color. Not real bitter but strong in the malt department and a definite fruit flavor at the end. Enjoyable IMO, but there are better Wychwood’s out there."

Caramel and faint sweet malt aroma. Dark amber colour with good looking carbonation but poor foam. Chocolate flavour with descreete hops. Nice fresh mouthfeel with delicious carbonation. I like this one!

Pas mauvaise comme ESB, pas trop amère. Elle serait meilleure en fut ou dans une bouteille brune.

Notes from a tasting last year. Bottle, rudy brown pour with decent head. Toasty malt caramel aroma, and flavors. A little thin and lioght, both in flavor, and in mouthfeel.Not bad, but I won’t go chasing it.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep red with a light creamy tan head. Malty aroma, fruity at the same time, light sniffs of hops. Flavor was good, fruity with a light hop bitterness. As the beer warmed slightly the lightly chocolate/coffee undertones were faintly detected. Very good. I’ll have it again.

In the 12 oz. brown bottle. Pours a dark brown with ruby undertones. White head quickly becomes exhausted from the beer. Wonderful toasted malty aroma. The body of this beer is very very watery, and yet the flavor is still quite nice. Good caramel roasted flavor with a nice hop bitterness to balance. Easy to drink.
