wimpyjoe (3908) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle from Booths, Salford. Amber-red with a small bubbly head. It’s strength is evident and feels much more than the 6.7% given its slightly spirit like aroma and taste, but like many old ales there’s a clear sweetness about it too.

NordicV (1162) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2013
Brunröd öl med lättare smutsvitt skum. Doft av kola, mörkt bränt socker. Samma återkommer i smaken tillsammans med viss fruktighet med dragning åt plommon.

Golden-brown colour. Aroma is mostly caramelly, with a subtle fruitiness. It’s a fairly basic beer. Not a lot of complexity.

tom10101 (2781) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle (500 ml) @ Pub St-Alexandre (Québec). Best before March 2014. Clear mahogany with a medium off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is mild but interesting but toffee, earthy/mineral notes and light fruits. Taste is stronger than aroma, but far from overpowering. Toffee, earthy/mineral notes, light fruits and light floral presence. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly sirupy body. Good English Strong(?) Ale. Not very complex, but enjoyable and well balanced. Interesting.
