3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2012 Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a huge creamy tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet toasted caramel, light cherry, molasses and yeast. The flavor was bitter with notes of toffee, caramel, raisin, cherry, bread, nut and was a bit earthy. The finish was long with nut, caramel, raisin, cherry and bread. Medium body. Ok.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (500ml). Shared with blankboy and tupalev - my bottle. Poured cloudy mahogany with a small off-white head. Sweet candyish malt aroma, some mild hops - a nice funky woodiness emerges as it warms. This is very malty, mildly spicy and funky - there’s a hin of bottle-metal there too; reminds me of a light belgian ale crossed with a scotch ale. Mouthfeel is syupry, fairly flat, with a solid body (no pun on the picture) and fair alcohol presence. I liked it - started sweet, had a longish finish with a fair amount of alcoholic bitterness left on the tongue.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a rusty brown with a beautiful foam head that stood and stood. Nice florally sweet aroma. The flavor is harsh at first, acidic and woody, but it settles into a smooth (a little flat) roasty ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle conditioned 500ml: poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 16 Oct 2012 @ home. The bottle had a best before date of 20 Jan 2013.
Dull reddy brown body with a full head of white bubbles on top.
The nose was semi-sweet malty molasses with a mini-hint of spicy hops arriving as the beer warmed in the glass.
The taste was also malty with a hop bitterness coming late on each sip. Woody, nutty and malty, loads to find in the flavours to be honest: a very complex and enjoyable brew.
The alcohol level sat well within the body strength and couldn’t be detected: always a good sign in my eyes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle labeled under the "Our Glass" moniker. Pours a headless dark brown. Very murky. Nose is malty and sweet with chocolate notes and caramel. Light hop aromas as well. Taste is cocoa, sweet malts, dusty or powdery cocoa, light floral hops. Touch of spice as well. Body is light-medium with almost no carbonation. Rather smooth, though. Finishes with more powdery cocoa, light flowery hops, soft chocolate, sweet malts, dried dark fruits, and a bit of spice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2003 First off, this has the best, biggest, longest lasting, most substantial, creamy head I've seen. Good aroma, some spicy wheat and hops in there. Nice amber-red color, quite hazy, bottle conditioned. Tons of lacing. Seeping with quality. Flavor is quite round and very fluffy, but has some nice bitter elements on the finish. A touch of dry, chewy caramel malt. Incredibly well done, big body, but needs more complexity to back it up. Gets a touch boring towards the end.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mine was one of the "Our Glass" bottles. It’s a muddy reddish-brown with a wee white head and, luckily, tastes better than it looks. The aroma is a nutty roasted malt with dark, dried juicy fruits (prunes, raisins) and an earthy hop bitterness. It’s a thick drink with dark sweet malt, a bit of rough smoke, dried fruits, nuts, and hop bitterness. Nice dry finish. Good, but not special.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of frothy light tan colored mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a hazy body with finely sized yeast floaties that was brown in color. The aroma was mild with sweet malty notes and the mouth feel was vinous and tingly from start to finish. The sweet malty flavor left a semi-thick feeling in my mouth.
