yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 24, 2008
Tasted 20/04/2008. Pours a reddish amber with a thin off-white head. Buttery caramel and a little milk chocolate dominates the nose, with a little stewed fruit, toffee and alcohol. Medium-heavy weight with a nice mild carbonation. Buttery sweetness comes to dominate the mouth, making it a little too cloying (and making me think of some sort of Monteithís "Old Ale"). A bit one dimensional in the mouth. A little more hop bite or roasted malt would make for a very enjoyable strong.

Tempting head and color. Nice "aly" smell. Hoppy and oaky but a little too sweet in the finish.

BrockLanders (771) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Bottle...pours a dark amber color...minimal tannish head. Fruity malt nose...sweet, wow basically overly sweet malt flavor, maybe some caramelish toffee notes in there. Nahh, this ainít getting it done. It says "A powerful smooth strong ale...". Donít believe it for a second. Iíd believe a powerfully fruity sloppy mess, but thatís about it. Thin and crappy. Donít waste your time on this.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2004
Ferm beer with a warm-brown color and a fluffy white head. It has a rich aroma of fine roasted malts with a hoppy accent. The taste is original and it has a smooth mouthfeel with hints of ripe fruits, touch of pepper, caramel and fine malts. It ends in a bitterness of roasted malts and hops.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2009
Brewed in England....... 4th of July bash. Pours a copper color with zero head. Aroma of caramel, malts and candy. The taste is also of malts, caramel and a hint of fruit. The mouthfeel is mild, kind of thin with a bitter/sweet finish. Not bad, but not exciting either.
