3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I truly love this beer. I like especially the fact that it comes in a larger bottle. Pours a nice dark cherry brown and dispite the slight bitter edge it is quite smooth. Nice caramel and chocolate malt smell.

Pours a hazy brown, nice white head. Kind thin and watery, with a nutty brown ale like taste but watered down, not much else pretty weak.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark brown body with light carbonation forming a thin slick of white foam. Caramel/chocolate mousse with light cherry fruit and nuts. Nice flavor that begins with roast and brown, smoky malt leading to spruc/stem hops and a dry woodiness. Not a bad beer, it would be neat to try a live sample.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
[ Bottled ; chilled ; BB Oct 21 2006 ]
A mostly diminushing small fizzy off-white head that tops up a clear light mahogany body. Moderate lacing. No particules. No bubbles. Aroma presents malt being light cookie and nuts (there are traces of red fruits too!) while hops are very faint grass. Yeast character is light Also, there are faint notes of saltyness and butter/toffee. Initial flavor is medium sweet while development is lighty bitter (but still salty and sweet.. odd). Finish is short . Light body... watery texture... Soft carbonation...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2007 Pours dark nut brown w/ a full, semi creamy froth that slowly reduces to a nice, full lace. Aroma of slightly roasted malt and tree bark. Medium nectar w/ ample, creamy residual effers. Dry and bitter w/ roasted malts. Flavors of tree bark, roasted coffee bean, leather, slight bitter bakers cocoa. The finish has a stern roasted bittering. Drinks better as it warms. Says wychwood on the bottle. Maybe thats the kind of wood I taste, Wychwood...baugh!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The bottle poured a crystal clear mahogany beverage with a medium sized off-white head that was mostly diminishing and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was predominantly toasted malt with a hint of noble hops in the background along with a sweet hint of bubble gum. This one had a medium body with lively carbonation and a slightly watery texture. The flavor started off slightly sweet showing off the malt character and then the average length finish was lightly bitter as you would expect from a "bitter".

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2007 Dark brown with light shining through making for a reddish glow. Slightly skunky aroma, but diminishes allowing for some yeasty notes. Yeast visible in suspension. Flavours of coffee, sweet roast malt, chocolate and a caramellic finish. Sweet, with just enough bitterness to balance.
2007:Charcoal, tobacco, notes. This bottle from a special xmas pack, with a shirt and sealed into a metal container. No skunk this time.
