Strong-style English Ale is a favorite of those who love intense beer flavors. Malty and hoppy with a hint of fruitiness, the elevated alcohol content is also noticeable in the flavor profile.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2006
(On tap) Memphis. Clear, reddish brown with an off-white head. Malty, lightly caramelish nose. Medium-bodied, lightly sweet with some sherry notes and lovely, roasted malt. And everything is perfectly balanced by some rather solid bittering hops. 280306

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 9, 2014
On tap. Poured deep amber with a swirly beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter dark fruits, toffee, and some fruity hops.. I didn’t get much "English" in the nose.. OK. The flavor found lots of fruity stuff again, with caramel and molasses helping to support.. berry seeds and peppery alcohol on the edges.. finished warm and fruity. Medium-bodied with low carbonation.. too sharp at times.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2007
This is fundamentally an attempt at a 5% ABV barleywine. PA aroma, someplace between England and America, suggests an upstate NY hopping combo. Darkish brown-red, small spongy camel-colored head. Sweet, citrusy, woody, lightly astringent. Medium heavy body, wood-bitter finish with light sulphur. Very light diacetyl. Solid.

nickd717 (4187) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 6, 2010
On tap at the Nashville brewpub. Pours a clear dark brown color with reddish hues and a well-formed off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel dark fruits, and mild hop notes. Flavor is very malty and fruity, and probably the sweetest beer I had at Bosco’s. Sugar plum and raisin, caramel and toffee, with some hop bitterness on the finish. Medium-full bodied with medium-low carbonation. A nice beer overall, but not one of my favorites from Bosco’s.

Butters (4047) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 28, 2009
On draft at hillsboro village. Pours a beautiful clear rust color, with good dark tan head and decent lacing. Nose is corn and dark grains and sweet alcohol fusuel burn. Rum soaked fruits and bourbon notes. Medium body and cloying. Tastes like alcohol burn. Pass. Cool name though.
