77
Nose
There's a touch of chocolate in the dominant malt, along with a little raisin and suggestions of black tea.
Palate
Sweet, malty and smooth. Nut flavour is not obvious but there is some raisin and a little tealike bitterness.
Finish
Caramel on the swallow lingers on into the nutty finish that eventually turns bitter.
Comment
A well-balanced but not particularly striking beer that delivers more in the finish than in the taste.

Nose
Sweet malt with a touch of sulphur in the background.
Palate
An impeccably-balanced trip from sweet through dry.
Finish
Dry, with a little hopbitter aftertaste.
Comment
Elegant in its restraint, the very definition of smoothness.
