3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
500. Pours a crystal clear dark brown with a loose and sudsy tannish head. Sharply tart nose in a way that seems to come from out of nowhere; raw and overripe and strawberryish, almost kinda grand-cru-ish. Odd, but you could see why they might want to go this way. Figs and dry leaves as well. Medium body, not much character in the way of creaminess or anything. Figs, raisins, and a bit of strawberry on the mid-palate. Neutral finish.

Clear copper with small creamy beige head, nice circular lacing. A bit like drinking a weak port but nevertheless a very drinkable beer. some spicy wheat and hops in there Aftertaste is pleasant and rather gentle considering the 6 per cent strength.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle as Our Glass. Earthy malty aroma. Amber color with a two finger beige head. An old ale aroma for sure. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is malt with something like medium dark or dried light stone fruit. This is great stuff. The mildly roasted malt is set off by some bitter hop. I can’t describe it, so you must just try it. It is very, very good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ourglass - I thought this was pretty thin overall and devoid of any compexity. Slightly bitter upon first taste, sour, dried fruits, somewhat astringent and some light bready maltiness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose of dried fruit, berries, caramel, and bourbon. Smells alot heavier than 6%. Pours a clear garnet with a smallish creamy off white head that is mostly diminishing with very light lace. Balanced start with lightly tangy acidic middle. The finish is long with slight bitterness, and again notes of dried fruit, and flowers. The medium creamy body is flat. It doesn’t happen often that a brew tastes better than it smells, but this one does. Very well done, and would make a lovely session offering. Hoping this gives me some relief from my stomach virus.

A rich malty beer with deep caramel malts. The hops have a deep herbal flavors. The taste of the beer gives a real presence of English ale

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is malty with sweet with lightly toasted malt, yeast, and hops. The appearance is deep amber with a very small head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is a decent beer.
