3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Clear amber ale with medium light creamy cover.
Nose :Alcoholic weave into woody hints, hint of vanilla dipped cherry and of twizzlers.
Flavor/Palate : Medium bodied , quiet empty frontal but with more character in the middle and finish. Semi-dry alcohol warmth, processed vanilla and dough. At finish texture becomes chewy and more complex. Brew with obvious flaws that transforms into likeable thing.

Pours a cloudy orange/red. Tasted a bit on the florally hoppy side but there were also some definite tastes of figs and raisins. Not a bad beer. Iím definitely keeping the bpttles to display on my bar during the baseball season.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (12oz) Hazy deep amber-orange with a large beige lasting rocky-foamy off-white head. Very faint aroma of dry floral hops, rye bread, faintly citrusy and not much malt anywhere. Taste is juicier (peach, orange, apple) with more floral and slightly funky hops - nice and balanced, the finish is quite juicy. Mouthfeel is slightly acidic and fizzy, decent body - donít taste the alcohol at all - very nice.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a dissapearing off white head. Caramel aroma with candy sugar, cherry and hops. Medium body. Flavor has a general fruit sweetness, as well as caramel and hop notes. Not that bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Hazed copper hue with a frothy off-white head and very good lace. The aroma hints of biscuit, toasted malts, boyenberry, toffee, floral hops, and dusty yeast esters. Reminds me a lot of Fullerís beer but not as strong. The taste has a mild fruity and malty tone with a good balance of bitters throughout. Undertone of earthy, woody and smoky notes which led to a subdued bitter finish. The alcohol is very well hidden. The feel is lively and dry, almost chalky, some richness. If you told me this was made in Britain, I would have believed you. A nicely quaffable strong ale, again very Fullers like.

Pours a dark amber body with an off white head. Aroma is sweet malt with a potent hop aroma of citrus. Flavor is dominated by malt and the citrus hoppy sting comes in in the finish. okay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber - not unlike a bourbon. Decent off-white head with good lacing. Fruity aroma with a slight alcohol undertone. Slightly acidic flavor with some good malty notes. Has some of the same qualities that English bitters have - Fuggles is apparent. The aftertaste lingers a bit too long - alcohol hidden fairly well.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The original reason for my longtrip through Montreal to Cooperstown. Ask me and I will tell you the story. POured with a light khaki head and a medium copper colored body. The aomra was oranges with some old toffee. There was also some grainy character. The taste was old toffee with some grapefruit. There was also a little butter. Finishes sweet.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy amber with a slight white head. Aroma is very fruity and buttery- kinda diacetylish. I really like that ringwood yeast. Gives a great authentic english strong aroma, along with lots of malt. Reminds me a little like old thumper or any other shipyard brew due to the yeast selection, however, this beer has a medium body and is rich in flavor. However- I really believe that there can be no way that this is 7.7% abv. It just tastes like it is around 5. A very good strong ale and not overbearing. Extremely drinkable.
