3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle BB Sep 2017, into a pint glass. Looks almost exactly like cola, just a ring of white head with no lacing. Aroma has cardboard, bisto granules, yeast, some dark chocolate. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is bourbon biscuit, more dry hazelnut than walnut, a bit of tangy metal towards the finish. Nice enduring musty roasted coffee-ish aftertaste. Decent Sunday night sipping beer. 3.4 was my original thought, though I may be being harsh.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark brown with a red tint and a tan thin, somewhat lasting, lacy, frothy head. Smells of caramel, bread, nuts, herbs, butterscotch and coffee. Fully slick flat body with a bitter finish. Heavy sweet taste of malt and coffee with a bitter herbal raisin finish. Though I love brown ales, this was seemed a tad sweet. Delicious nonetheless

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Mahogany brown with tan head than thins but laces well. Malt and coffee aroma. Taste quite sweet also nutty with chocolate coffee finishing roasty bitter. Low carbonation. Thin to medium mouthfeel. It is not bad if you are a brown ale fan but a little too sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 500ml from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Deep brown with cream head. Quite a sweet start to this with a nutty aside, like a Cadbury’s whole nut bar, there is a chocolate note within the malt, which then complicates to a husky coffee. This is all bound together by the sweetness though, which dominates a little for me. Good though.
