2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Uit de fles. Amberkleurig. Ruikt een beetje bedorven, kauwgom fruitig. Wat dunne smaak, bitterzoet, ik haal er niks specifieks uit. Geen bijzonder lekker bier.

Big head which leaves some side drifting and deep brown it is too. You taste the alcohol all right but there’s so little else on the palate from beginning to the non bitter end you can’t help but think this is Carlberg Special Brew for Hobbits.

This is to my mind the best of the bottled beers from Wychwood. This tastes less than pasteurised and has all the body and flavour you would expect from a strong ale. Aroma kind of bubblegum. Lots of raison, dough, hay richness, that ends in the mouth with a slight Christmas pudding fruitiness hazelnut and raison. Medium to full body. Smooth mouthfeel.

Bottle Coppery colour with light tan head .Aromas of fruits malts caramels . Sweet taste to start quite rich like muscovado with flavours of dark and green fruit .nice medium bodied mouthfeel . taste trends to hoppy bitterness at the end providing a refreshing contrast to the sweet start . Quite a nice occasional ale

This pours a brownish amber with a nice off white head. Very malty with a light fruit flavor, overall decent

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Burnt copper pour, frothy cream head. aroma is bready, yeasty and bitter malt. Some floral notes. Trying to be nice about the palate - some black tea and bitter nuttiness up front, but the finish is a sour metallic skunkiness. Possibly spoiled? Nasty. Couldn’t even finish this.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear deep copper colour with a white head that slowly dies down leaving good lacing. Lots of fruit aromas on the nose, notably plum and raisin, as well as some malty notes. Taste is largely the same, dominated by dark fruit and caramel but with a bit of a hop kick at the end and some warming alcohol, with a lingering finish. Some other ratings noted the beer being rather unbalanced. I frankly didn’t find that. Maybe the long journey from the UK to Australia knocked some of the edges off this one.
