UPDATED: JAN 12, 2009 <i>2008-12-09, gravity dispense at The Bree Louise, London, 7.8%, 6-4-7-3-14=34</i>
Dark mahogany color, almost black; flat. Light caramel aroma. Good body strength, strong caramel flavor, with dark chocolate tones, that become quite strong towards the end, as well as the bitterness; there are also roasted nuts at the end. Reasonable Strong Ale (not sweet enough to be a Barley Wine), a bit too much roasted for me.

<i>2005-12-03, cask conditioned at Charlie’s Pub, Copenhagen, 6-3-8-4-14=35</i>

<i>2004-11-30, cask conditioned at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, 5-4-7-4-14=34</i>
Brown color. Simple aroma. Very good body, malty, with a lot of caramel and some chocolate. Bold final.
