4.75/5 rDev +21.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Presentation: 12 oz brown long neck bottle with a bottling date in the bottom left hand corner of the label. Label has a blurb about the beer and showing that this beer was brewed for the 2000-2001 season.
Appearance: Mild chill haze, slightly reddish hued amber. Pours to form a with a thick rocky head that takes forever to dissipate.
Smell: Hints of buttery diacetyl and earthy hops, cookie like malt aroma and suggestions of chocolate and toasted biscuits.
Taste: Medium body with a crisp and smooth mouth feel and an unobtrusive carbonation. Hop bitterness is clean and leaves a semi sharp bitterness all the way through the beer, an oily flavour hits middle to end. A sweet brew, lots of cake-like malt flavour with caramel and toasted grain flavours to boot. Great finish, some residual sweetness a mild herbal hop taste.
Notes: Well balanced and a more than decent “Winter Warmer” style brew, aiming more for a “I’ll have another one” winter seasonal brew rather than a monster of a beer that weighs you down after one. I’d happily drink this one all through a cold blustery night.

4.36/5 rDev +11.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: pours a healthy 2" sudsy cream colored head. Recedes slowly leaving decent lacing. Color is deep amber, slightly cloudy, with moderate carbonation.
Aroma: strong malt presence with raisins, caramel, and whole wheat bread. A bit of earthy hops in the background.
Mouthfeel: standard fluffy English ale mouthfeel, fairly light bodied with a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: a hearty brew. The malt dominates (as expected) with those raisin, caramel, and whole wheat bread (toasted) flavors leading the way. There is also a moderate hop presence in the middle and finish and a bit of lingering alcohol burn with the swallow. Delicious and well made ale.
