Aroma of toffee, cola maybe, carbonation and some sweetish alcohol.
Quite a bit roasty on entry, mellowing out into full caramely malts.

Weak aroma of dark malt. Color is a clear dark brown with ruby highlights, and a two-finger khaki head that quickly dissipates. Smooth malty flavor with dark fruits pulling through in the finish and a sweet aftertaste. Low carbonation and kind of watery. Nice.

Poured dark brown, smelled of roasted malts. Roasted malt and nut in the mouth with semi-sweet chocolate/toffee. Good mouthfeel with enough carbonation, but a bit thin. Not too bitter like some English strong ales I’ve had.

Once again, this is a new style to me and I have to say that I really enjoyed this beer. Poured a beautiful dark brown with a thick creamy head. This beer had so much malt and caramel to ot. Very low carbination and lacing was nice also. I did detect some rasin or fig hints to it too. I thought it was a great beer, but a stong ale? hmmmm I don’t think so, maybe I’m wrong.

Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours copper brown with small head. Aroma of caramel, some coffee - reminds me to Karo Kaffee, a German malt coffee. Sweet, but no heavy malt body. Almost dry, fruity finish, with a nicely balancing bitterness. Very drinkable.

I seem to have liked this beer more than others. The beer had a unique tingle when it hit the tongue. It had that sweet and thick flavor without being viscous. Great jog of having flavor without filling up my stomach.

Cask at Kingston Arms, Cambridge. Weak taste especially considering the ABV. Slightly sweet, average bitter...
