Pours a deep red color with a small off-white head. Not much lacing.
Sweet scents of honey, caramel, vanilla, and toffee.
Honey, caramel, and vanilla taste. Like the taste of sweet bread. Very little hop presence, in keeping with the British style. The finish is somewhat bitter with a slight alcohol presence.
Nice full body with a medium amount of carbonation.

Definitely a lot of bang for your buck for this beer. It's a pretty big brew, and only goes for about $11 for a sixer. I might be buying this one again soon and possibly age one or two.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: pours a dark ruby-brown, with a decent head.

Smell: sweet, with hints of vanilla, chocolate and caramelly malt, no hop presence.

Taste: fairly strong, again with a sweet and thick chocolate and caramelly maltiness, but followed by a nice hop presence.

Mouthfeel: the beer has a medium thick, smooth body, with a decent but lower level of carbonation.

Overall: this is a very good beer. The malt and hop profiles balance each other nicely, and the body is heavy, but without becoming syrupy.
