33cl bottle. Cloudy pale brown colour with a thin off-white head. Nuts, toffee, caramel, spices and grass in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Spicy notes on the flavour. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Overall, a nice but odd beer. mR_fr0g (11894) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle shared at Leighton’s gaff. Thanks to Colin Bois. Clouded reddy amber coloured pour with a small halo of offwhite head. Aroma is sweet berry, farmyard, farty, strawberry, nutty, berry. Flavour is composed of sweet, nutty toffee grains, fruity berry. Palate is slightly sticky, moderate carbonation, grainy on the tongue and a little thin. Bit too sweet and lacks depth.

Bottle shared in London - thanks Colin. Pours unclear amber with a creamy white head. The nose has some yeasty bread, candi sugar, wheat, berries. Medium sweet flavor with bready and crackery malts, some toasted grains, earthy bitterness, some old caramel. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with more crackery malts, bitter grains, earth, dried and leathery berries. So so. Scopey (14498) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours murky dark amber with a small off-white head. The nose is sweet, earthy, musty, cereal, cracker, brown bread, mild ketchup and squash. The taste is toasty, earthy, cereal, cracker, sort of watery, toasty grass, light spice and sugary with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Flavour is a but wishy washy and muted. Disappointing.

huge frothy offwhite head. excellent lacing. mostly diminishing. muddy thick light brown body. aroma: moderate nutty malty, caramel, milk chocolate and alcohol. if: moderate sweet. ff: light bitter; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic and heavy alcoholic finish. Aroma sorvete de chocolate. Dulçor bem maltado e achocolatado, lembrando também sorvete daquele, mas sem puxar para o lado da stout nem Porter. Sente-se o álcool, mas de forma mascarada, sem prejudicar nuances. Lembra um conhaque. Bem elegante. Leve amargor surge no final, balanceando o que por si só seria um dulçor saboroso, mas enjoativo a longo prazo. baixa drinkability – o leve amargor acaba não conseguindo combater o forte dulçor achocolatado e caramelado; isto, aliado ao forte teor alcoólico, a torna uma cerveja de degustação prolongada. Retrogosto de sabão surge como defeito grave. Lembra o sabor de outra cerveja bem famosa cujo nome não me recordo agora.110 s
