COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned. 330ml.
Ingredients: Pale malt, Black Crystal malt, Oats, Target hops.
Switched to filtered in 330ml bottles in 2011, then back to bottle conditioned in 2011.
Its high alcohol content along with the molasses and rum flavours create a beautiful contrast with blue cheeses or steak and kidney pie; and complement Dundee cakes or Cadbury’s fruit and nut.

lusikka (6208) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 14, 2013
500 ml bottle. Rated on 13.4.2013.
Pours a dark amber orange colour with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts, honey and sourish berries. Flavour of horribly sweet bready malts, grassy hops, pear and pineapple, lactic acid and some wood. Alcohol comes through. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and low carbonation. Not my kind of a beer.

Bottle. Ruby brown ale with no head. Aroma of sweet syrup. Taste is sweet syrup, rum and alcohol. Not one of the better ESAs.

RexTalionis (2412) - FINLAND - APR 5, 2013
Bottled. Pours clear copper in color with a small off-white head. Butterscotch, light boozyness and straw in aroma. Hay, light butter notes and some grassy notes in taste. Some sweetness as well. A bit dry and some booze in finish.

TET (1623) - FINLAND - MAR 31, 2013
A redbrown beer with a quite weak and blond head. Aroma is quite complex, fruits, toffee, fruit cake, sweetness, some red berries. Taste of caramell malts, fruits, spices and some drying wood, hint of strawberries. The aftertaste is surprisingly dry, some herbss, slightly musty. Medium bodied, slippery, mild carbonation. Nicely light and easy to drink, enough of complexicity without too swwetness, the good beer.

fantti (701) - FINLAND - MAR 30, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin kuparinruskeana ja kirkkaana, vaahto on melko niukka ja kevyttä pitisä jättävä. Haju on hyvin imelän karamellinen, oikeastaan siinä on vahva sekoitus liköörikarkkia ja viinikumia. Marjaisuutta ja loppuliu’ussa tulee myös toffeeta mukaan. Hieman yrttiäkin saattaa olla. Maku on jälleen hyvin karamellinen ja marjaisuus on myös läsnä. Mausteisuus tulee enemmän esiin, viinikumikin on siellä jossain. Alkoholi tuntuu läpi. Suutuntuma on pistelevän humaloitu, alkoholi lämmittää suuta. Vähän turhan alkoholinen brittiale, marjaisuus on kyllä hauska twisti tähän olueen.

tiong (3733) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2013
330ml bottle from Alko

Pours dark reddish orange with a small head. Aroma of caramely malts, toffee and hints of fruits. Taste is malty, sweet and syrupy with hints of caramel. Finish is malty, slightly nutty and caramely. Decent, quite generic English Strong Ale.

Marstonlad (412) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 28, 2013
Pours dark brown with a little white head. Aroma has quite sweet maltiness with berries, caramel and dried fruits. Taste is also sweet, a bit sweeter than strong English ales usually. Caramel maltiness is prominent with syrup, raisin and dark fruits. Hop flavour and bitterness are mild. Palate is medium bodied and sticky, soft carbonation. Not bad, a sweet English dessert ale.
