3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong brown ale from Michigan, with thin but stable, pale greyish beige head and clear, deep but translucent brown robe with a beautiful glowing vermillion hue. Inviting aroma of mandarin peel, blood orange, chocolate candy, home made caramel, nutmeg, blackcurrant, kahlua, dried forest leaves, candied figs. Pleasantly sweet onset, candied cherry, orange and brown sugar but nothing cloying and in fact quite refreshing thanks to the citrussy quality surrounding it; soft and smooth, somewhat oily mouthfeel, consisting of a lovely, clean caramelly malt sweetness with clear chocolate accent, flowing down the throat with ease and supporting a peppery, citrusy, aromatic and spicy hop bitterness in the end as well as a glow of warming, brandy-like alcohol, which is noticeable even in terms of taste and therefore could have been a bit better hidden. Apart from that, this is a lovely, tasty brew, clean and well-balanced between sweet and bitter, with a delightful warming quality. An ideal autumn beer, glad I picked this one from the cellar on this late October Sunday...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bonito marrón oscuro, escasa espuma, tintada pero de buen aspecto. Aroma especiado que deja apreciar también la malta, no dulce, sino seca y tirando a fruto seco. Compleja en boca, y diferente. Licórica y balanceada, y con un lúpulo que parece no beneficiar el carácter malteado, produciendo un sabor diferente en parte afrutado. Decente y bebible para 8 grados, pero no convence del todo.

Bottle, Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Good looking label. Dark brown pour with a small off white head. Nose had notes of choc, caramel and spice alongside a little hoppage. Flavour revealed some sweet malts, dark fruits, earth and piney hop. Lingering dry bitter finish. Interesting and enjoyable stuff.
