4.3/5 rDev +11.7%
Label and bottle design average for an English ale. Big black lettering not appealing.
A very nice dark red caramel color with a slight off-white head that dissipates quickly.
Smells like a typical dark ale, dark caramel malts and English hops.
The taste adds something. It's nether chocolate nor coffee not sweet caramel, just can't put my finger on it... but I like it. A very distinctive flavor that makes this a very good beer. Perhaps it's simply a darker, more carbonic caramel than usual.
Finish lingers with that nice flavor.
I really enjoyed this one, and the import price is well reasonable.

Pours a clear dark copper brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a thin cap on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, oatmeal cookie dough, and a spiced rum alcohol aroma. Taste is much the same with a toasted bread flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is fairly tasty but I think this one has a slightly better smell going on.

4/5 rDev +3.9%
Appearance: Very dark mahogany with a rocky two finger head that leaves behid sticky lacing.
Aroma: Dark fruits, plums, faint black licorice, twinges of cinnamon and sugar. Raisins, apple, figs with some molasses notes in the tail end.
Taste: Malty backbone, bready mouthfeel, figs, brown bread, licorice and molasses. A little bit of caramelized banana.
Notes: Malty all the way through a good example of an English Brown ale. Cheers.

Chestnut brown colour with a really good, thick looking and foamy head about a thumbs width tall that manages to stay consistent without any noticeable reduction in size.
Once settled there is a mix of coffee and roasted malts coming through.There is some sugar and a definite fruity finish with some caramel in there too.
More pronounced than the aroma to begin with, there is some light caramel and a nice earthy malt taste to kick things off with. This is all followed by some bitter malts, a fruity sweetness and a nice biscuit flavour with a hint of vanilla at the end.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a bittersweet mouthfeel and a slightly dry finish.
Starts off slow but gradually opens up and grows on you with the aroma becoming more noticeable and the taste was pretty good throughout. A very easy beer to drink and one that I'd have again.
