4/5 rDev +6.7%
Bought a single 12 oz bottle, poured into a pub glass. My baseline for judging browns is Newcastle, which Boffo easily surpasses in flavor and overall quality. This is a nice beer to convert swill drinkers over to the good stuff.
Looks- moderate head, a bit of nice lacing owed to the sugar content. Neat brown hue permeable to light.
Smell- bread, sweet honey,
Taste- obvious mild toasted malty biscuit, low hop presence. Unique honey notes that I haven't found in other browns. Pleasant yeastiness.
Mouthfeel- very drinkable, pleasantly uniform carbonation. Flattens out a bit as it warms.
Overall this is a tasty brown. It has some good subtle qualities that you won't find in the big corporate brands.

3.65/5 rDev -2.7%
Pours a deep, unclear brown color beneath a small, bubbly tan head. Creamy, nutty aromas upfront followed by malted milk, toasted grain, and berries. Lightly sweet chocolate and dark bread flavors and a bit of nutty roasted coffee as well. Some earthy hops join in and linger into the finish along with a dark fruitiness. Not as impressive as other malty Dark Horse beers, but this still manages to stand out from the pack.
