3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark clear brown pour with white head. Thick malty nose. What an odd mouth. Quite the mix of taste and flavours. It may be a bit much. I haven’t decided yet. Sweet caramel at first, then a touch of bitterness that’s replaced by a really earthy malt. This is then replaced by a bit of a boozy burn. The aftertaste is roasty and lingers a bit too long. I do like the way the booziness kind of burns away the confusing beginning of the mouth. It’s a unique sensation but one I find I like. I prefer this quite a bit over Hobgoblin and I’m saddened that this is seasonal.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Jun ’16. A 0.5 l bottle. It poured a clear copper-brown body with a big head. Very fruity aroma, peach, dark&dried fruits, really ale-ish with a touch of caramel. Flavor was lightly biter, toasted, biscuit and bread with lightly sweetness coming also from toasted malt in the form of caramel and fruits. Thinner in body, but with pleasant and long caramel, toast and dry finish. Quite fine and tasty for a British "native" beer.
