On cask. Brown with some reddish orange hints. Tasted watery and nutty (granted I had just been drinking a hop monster). Tasted my friend's to rate this, but I don't think I want a glass of my own.

Wow. Great looking beer in the glass. Nice dense head that is very frothy/creamy on top which leaves some nice lacing. Decent carbonation also. Color is a deep amber/red. Nice fruity aroma with cherries and grapes. Flavor is smooth and very well balanced. Mostly malt with some more dark fruits in there. Finish is a little bit of a let down. Expected a more pronounced finish. Kind of flat without much character. Little bitterness. And not much alcohol warming. Still, a fine english strong ale.

Deep orange and clear. Lasting tan head. Interesting complex, fruity aroma, with notes of apricot and peach. Full malt palate, lasting carmel flavor, lingering spicey fruit and alcohol burn. Very awesome beer!

Ruby color. Light malt aroma. Good body, dominated by the caramel flavor, and ending with a robust bitterness. Drinkable, but monodimensional strong Bitter.

Bottle pours a deep amber with a tall pillow like head and good lace. The aroma is quite malty and with some good hop showing. The flavor is malty, roasty, fruity, with a long bitter finish. The palate is moderatly rich. Overall, this is pretty good.
