Ahh yes, the rate and elusive English Strong Ale style. Crystal clear golden color, see pic please. Aroma of boozy herbs. Taste is powerful boozy. Holy cow. Definitely the best split pea beer I’ve had in my entire life.

Draft at the brewpub, served in a flight. Pours a clear gold color with a small white ring for a head. Notes of apple, oak, tea, grass, astringent booze, wheat, and vegetals. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, boozy mouthfeel. A bit harsh and uneven.

Homer321 (3767) - Melboring, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Draft at source. Nose is lightly spicy with a rye like presence. Light woody tannins. Taste is very malty and a great Scottish ale. Light peat. Wonderful caramel and toffee not too sweet. Wonderful woodsy tannins help dry it out.

Lots going on in this tawny brew. Gives impression of brandy with it’s fruitiness, but there’s no brandy. Oaky, sweet smelling. Hints of peat make their way into the aroma and flavor, but just hints. This is a malty barreled sweet brew, though not overly sweet or hot, and with a unique flavor."

Ibrew2or3 (7930) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 1, 2013
On draft at Tap 25 in Livermore and enjoyed in the company of Livermore spokesman, ratebeer’s own, joeneugs. It pours up with a copper body and slight haze and supporting an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet citrus hard candy, some hop resin and mixing with smooth sweet bourbon like booziness. The taste is robust with sweet malts, sweet vanilla infused bourbon and then malt sweetened citrus hoppiness. Into the finish it seems smooth whiskey like notes are lingering into the after taste. Solid brew and balanced too.
