3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Belmont Station.
A: Opaque mahogany body, creme color head, some lacing.
N: Cocoa, lactose, coffee, roast, some cola, earthiness, burnt biscuit. Hint of marshmallow, black licorice and mission fig.
T: Roasty and sweet. Not much bitterness.
M: Medium body, spritzy carbonation, no alcohol.
O: A really nice ’mild’. Reminds me a bit of the one I had at HotD which was supposed to be a more historic take on the style. Best of the Batch recreations, IMO.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Belmont Station. Colour...ruddy brownish-amber with a garnet hue and a thin white head. Nose...sweet cherry o’ mine! There’s definitely quite a cherry hit to this ale. Palate...plenty of malt start this show and then the stars appear with bushels of cherries in hand and plenty of treacle and brown sugar sirop. The mid palate is dry and tight and flavours of cigar wrapper appear with toffee and butterscotch on the finish.
