3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits with some caramel and grassy notes. Taste is a fruity and caramel malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a good representation of the style. Recommended.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hatalmas, örökké tartó hab, bronz szín. Karamelles, malátás illat. Karamelles, malátás ízvilág némi fűszeres aromával. Könnyed, közepesen szénsavas, enyhén keserű. Kellemes, jól kiegyensúlyozott sör, de van egy kis égett mellékíze.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big chunky bottle from Arden Wines, march 2016. Fat headed coppery bronze with a plump cream foam. Aroma of brass initially; shrub, sappy greenery and cherry blossom as the head subsides. Fine-balanced praline, sesame, cherry stone and shrub notes lingering with a toffee popcorn creaminess. Sweet, savoury, lip-smacking and serious. Nutty and sappy. Saline and rusty dabs. Another winner from these boys

Clear amber color. Quickly fading head. Lovely malty aroma with caramel, dried fruits, some yeast esters (again, some dried fruits, a hint of banana-like character), fresh baked dark bread. Sweet start, very malty, bready in the middle. Some caramel, yeast fruitness. Nice herbal hop finish, but not overly bitter. Very balanced. A lovely beer. Nice to have some yeast character to add some complexity to the style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Honey coloured, with white head that doesn’t last beyond a minute. Light palate, moderate carbonation. Malt on the nose, and a whiff of wood smoke. Bready malt in the taste - not as heavy as in many dunkels - and quite sweet, with hints of honey and candied orange, and some banana at the end.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Craft Islington thanks to Dirty D. It pours fresh, bready malts, sweet candied peel, grass and paper. The taste is soft, sweet, candy, sugary malts, sweet bread, candied apricot, dull sherbet and biscuit with a sweet finish. Medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. OK, but a bit overlay sweet for my liking.
