3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle at home. Pours clear copper with a decent head and lacing. Big malt aromas, touch of alcohol, almonds, apple. Not as sweet on the taste as I thought it might be, good balance of bitterness. Some more toffee and chocolate coming through. Creamy texture, and finishes quite clean and crisp. Very enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Brunröd öl med lättare smutsvitt skum. Doft av kola, mörkt bränt socker. Samma återkommer i smaken tillsammans med viss fruktighet med dragning åt plommon.

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.
