Cask @ Bricklayers Arms, Yorkshire BF ’08. Brown / red colour. Aromas of dark fruits, citrus, honey. Taste is sweet, malty, citrus, cherry. This is pretty nice, vaguely like an Old Ale.

jacobwennbom (352) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2008
Malty, roasted taste and aroma. Brown with off white head that does not last. Nothing special really, which is bad considering it cost me about 50 SEK (about 5.50 euro) in the store.

Brown color with decent head. Powdered cocoa and nut aroma and flavor. Mild and mellow. Thin to medium body.

Odde (305) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2009
Flat carbonation. Carmel and malt aromatics. Too thin and passive. This isn’t something I’d return to.

demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2007
Pours a dark brown with a coffe colored head. The aroma is malty and dark. The flavor is definitely malty but follows through with licorice and chocolate. Stays with you on the palate but is not cloying. A nice beer.

georgekappus (296) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Bottle. Pours a deep amber with a thick yellow head. Caramel aroma with undertones of orange? Sweet caramel taste with a subtle hoppiness. A slight tang in the aftertaste. This was too watery for a strong ale.

Gusgus (232) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2008
Bottle. Small, malty and fruity aroma with some sourness. Medium body. Soft malt and fruits, typical english hop flavor, but it’s on the low side. Average beer, and not what I would prefer of a strong bitter.
