Pours a slightly hazed, brownish -amber with a beige head that thins to a film. The aroma is pleasantly malty with notes of dark fruit, sharp spice and a hint of coffee and possibly chocolate.
Despite the maltiness this beer isn't too sweet. There are caramel and dark fruit notes on top of a toasty base. It moves through to a bit of alcoholic spiciness, which when combined with the maltiness gives it a boozy quality. The finish is woody with a light roasty bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste. Soft and smooth on the palate, medium-bodied and moderately carbonated.
Not too heavy and well balanced. A great session beer.

Brewed at Batemans for 'spoons latest real ale festival. Chestnut to mahogany colour with an offwhite head. It smells of toffee, but it certainly doesn't taste sweet, instead there's a wholemeal bread, almost marmitey flavour. There are certainly spicy hops here, but I prefer them in conjunction with something a little sweeter. There's also a hint of cocoa. It has a rather dry finish.
