4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Although a little on the sweet side I really enjoyed this beer mainly for the fact that on the nose those notes of molasses, raisins, dates and loads of spices then turn into a root beer/sasparilla on the palette.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from bottle into lager type glass. Smells malty and sweet. Pours a dark brown with slight red tint. Head is light and foamy and disappears quickly. Some lacing that slowly disappears. Taste is sweet, malty and complex. Near perfect balance (liitle sweet). Good carbonation. Aftertaste is a little sweet. Overall I loved this beer. You would never know the ABV is 7.2%. Will look for this one again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear mahogany with a slightly yellowish head. Aroma is malty with caramel. Taste is sweet with a touch of bitterness, sour and spice. It tastes like dessert. Its fairly malty with notes of bready malt, apples, spice, and caramel that remind me of apple cinnamon bread, and then cherries and raisins. There’s some booziness, like rum, but it’s under enough deliciousness to avoid being off putting. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. This is definitely a one and done beer, but it’s one that I will definitely come back to.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear mahogany colour, moderate off-white head. The aroma is disturbed by notes of hay and cardboard. Also caramel & treacle are there. Medium body. Rich malty taste. Lots of caramel & molasses. Vinous. Low bitterness. Rather disappointing.
