Imperial mild ale brewed according to a recipe from Truman’s brewery, London, dated 27/2/1832. A brew that surely saved many lives during the cholera epidemic that was raging in the city at this time. A thick, warming, estery beer with notes of dried fruits, fudge and molasses

Bottle, thanks PotjeBier! Murky dark brown color. Caramel, malt syrup in the aroma. Malty sweet caramelly flavor with hints of roast, Apple syrup and raisin. Hardly any carbon, Full bodied. Amateuristisch but Drinkable

25 cl bottle @ some canal, Amsterdam. Bottled on 19.06.2014.
Aroma has lots of bready malt and toasted caramel. Also raisins. Feels like a German doppelbock. Flat and oily palate, quite close to sahti. Flavour has strong alcohol tones, caramel and bananas. Also some dp-like malt and sweet rye tones typical to a sahti. And ripe fruits with toffee at the end of the glass - this has turned from a sahti into a Belgian barley wine!. Aroma of a dp, taste, appearance and palate of a sahti, interesting. On blind tasting I’d say this is a sahti. The alcohol balances the sweetness here but this is kind of messy. Still I seem to enjoy this.

Bottled @ Arendsnest, medium sample. Almost clear amber to copper color, short to no head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, hint of vanilla, hint of raisin, slight earthy hop. Medium sweet in taste, bit bitter. English strong ale alike.
