The aroma is roasted and nutty with a touch of licourice. Looks pretty good too - a very dark ruby coloured beer. Tastes of winter fruits and licourice with roast character. Quite juicy and mouthfilling on the palate. Good long finish too. Good beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle picked up at SH Jones Bicester. This was more like it, after having the Wye Valley Butty Bach I then had this one next and had picked it up without even looking at the strength in the shop. This was a corker, poured a deep copper colour with a sweet malty aroma and not much of a head. But it was the Taste Department that this really excelled in, a really full flavoured beer that tasted of toffee, malt, and some slight burned flavours excellent when compared to its stablemate and very good in it’s own right.
