English Strong Ale with a malty taste, unique and different, a true Flying Dog original.

Similar to Fullers 1845, but with a clean-ness that edges it towards doppelbock with intense, breadcrusty malt. Dry finish makes it very drinkable for 7.4%, and somewhat tea-like.

Hopmaestro (194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2014
Aroma is sweet from the malts and some raisins and nuts. The taste is pretty straight forward clean malts that transforms into a mid-fruity finish. In the end of the aftertaste I actually pick up a hint from marzipan that quickly runs by, and that’s the highlight in this brew. Decent and straight forward but not that superb that you are used to with Flying Dog.

Flaska från SB. Mörkbrun klar vätska. Doftar torkad frukt, lätt av kaffe. Bra balans mellan typ dadlar och rostade nötter. Jul? Jo visst serru... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear dark amber with a nice off-white head that stays long. Malty in the nose when cold and it then transforms to cranberry, apple cider and toffee (the malty type). A hint of a bitter finish. A nice winter beer.

60minuteman (863) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2014
A see through brown with subtle amounts of head or lace. Aroma is heavy caramel malt, pine/spice and chocolate. Flavor is mild sweet by the cocoa, still heavy oaky malt and some spice. Pretty dang good. Thank you FD, I was beginning to lose hope. An ESA from FD. Great stuff.

floydslip (202) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Deep mahogany beer with a medium foamy light tan head. Somewhat underwhelming nose of apple cider, red wine vinegar, and salted caramel--nuanced, but too faint. Flavor is on the mild side too with some caramel flavors followed by a bit of sour and finally light hop bitterness. Decent, but the flavor profile isn’t among my favorites.

Leini (922) - SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2014

solidfunk (4492) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Heavy on the malt. Light spice like nutmeg but not in your face. Medium bitter finish. Amber pour with OK head and lacing. Bottle thanks to roomie.

@ Havregatan 141106. Bottle (355 ml) from Systembolaget (28:-). Malty and fruity with caramely and light spicy notes, hints of cherries and dried fruits, sweet, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is long, dry, bitter and fruity.
