Unanimous choice of five tasters at the brewpub for best beer of a very disappointing session. This one made the effort worthwhile.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark amber-brown. No particular head. Chewy, rich earthy malt aroma with toffee notes and burnt cherry accents. A little late alcohol. Sweet, complex profile. A rich blend of milk chocolate, burnt toffee, rum-soaked fruitcake. Long, chewy finish. Follows in Hale’s tradition of approachable beers that just happen to be really good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Stateside, pours a hazy amber orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out caramel, brown sugar, and bready malt. Flavour is less sweet than expected, with notes of caramel, bready malt, and a fairly prominent spiciness in there that cuts down the sweetness. Balanced and drinkable, yet nothing overly provocative. Decent.
