3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2016 Bottle 500ml. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a clear copper with a foamy, off-white head that is mostly lasting. Aroma is sweet and malty with earthy hops, toffee, vanilla bean, brown sugar, muscatels and marmalade . Flavour is very smooth and sweet with a light earthy hop bitterness, chestnuts, caramel, biscuits, brown sugar, dried currants and dried peaches. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, a chewy texture and a good length finish. Well hidden alcohol content. Finishes a little ’thin’ but tasty all the same.

pours a translucent brown with medium cream head. fairly strong malt aromas. taste is caramel, hazelnut and burnt toffee. finish is toffee, molasses and alcohol. overall, an enjoyable, yet very drinkable (despite the high gravity) beer. The best Wychwood offering I have had - by far.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rich copper/antique gold in appearance, clear, with an off white foam. Aromas of caramel with also fruity notes, in particular orange and peach. Medium body and smooth, simple in flavour with strong malt taste, a subtle alcoholic tang. Decent but missing the complexity in taste.
