I tried this in bottle form after purchasing a mixed case from the brewery.

The beer poured a very dark brown with a dark cream head that faded to a 1mm film then suds.

The nose was dominated of burnt malts, toasted figs and treacle.

A rich malty taste with a fruity afterthought of blue/black berries, slightly sour, added in. This gave the beer a nice bitter sweet effect.

This medium bodied beer reminded me more of a Scottish style of beer with the maltiness from start to finish, I really did enjoy it and would order this again. This will not be to everyone's taste, the flavours were way to distinctive to appeal to the masses, but I loved this beer.

500ml bottle bought from The Vineyard, Belfast...

Poured a dark brown amber colour... Creamy head poured small but quite thick and foamy then faded quickly to thickish pock marked coating... no carbonation at all... some thin lines of wispy lacing...

Aroma - Light roasted biscuity malts, toffee / treacle sweetness, good peppery hop notes, some saltiness, light woody / smokey traces, some raisin and date fruitiness, light Christmas cake notes, earthy notes, some grassiness.... nice but all a bit subdued...

Taste – A little watered down and bland sadly... toasted caramel malts, treacle notes, malt loaf, sweet nutty notes, some light spiciness, dark fruits (dates, plums, light figs), toasted bread, dusty traces, some vegetal hints, a little soapy, faint wheatiness...

Feel - Smooth and creamy... medium bodied... quite drinkable at 4.9% but just a little boring...

Overall - An OK beer... everything could do with being ramped up a notch... maybe worth a try....

3.58/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Tasted recently by a half-pint at the Swim Inn, a JDW pub on West Street, Sheffield. Served by a handpump with a sparkler.

A: dark russet-brown in colour, with ruby glows against light; a creamy pale-tan froth sustains well on top of low carbonation.
S: autumny dark fruits and caramel are mixed with a lively scent of whole hops, decorated with spicy and grassy notes. Overall, densely aromatic but not terribly complex.
T: stricky sweet liquor-like fruitiness (plum or dark-berry liquor) prevails upfront, underlined by a syrupy amber maltiness underneath; the leafy hops slowly take over, in parallel with the lingering biscuity malt aroma and a mildly tannic bitterness in the end.
M&D: very "autumny" in the overall flavour profile, medium-bodied, and softly fizzy due to the work of sparkler; the fruitiness plays the main theme with a clearly-themed amber malt backbone. A solid, easy-drinking premium bitter it is.
