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

Brown/cherry pour. Sweet fruits in the nose (cherry mostly) with an underlying nuttiness. More fruit tartness in the body is balanced with caramel sweetness that lasts into the finish. Interesting take on a Xmas brew - mellow but good.

Head was a bit too fleetingbut aroma is nice. Smooth and creamy but could use more alcohol to offset maltyness.

raymow (978) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2006
I see this as more of a typical winter brew than an English Strong Ale - but then again, what the hell do I know? Good enough flavor and aroma, but not the best in this category. Nice dark red color, though.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown color in the glass with a tan, soda-like head that fizzed off quickly. Smell of fruits and nuts present. The flavor had caramel, fruit, a hint of chocolate, and a sweet malt aftertaste. Medium bodied.

SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - DEC 24, 2005
Somewhat overly carbonated for my tastes although very little head when I poured. Tough for this English strong ale to stand up with my standard. Not bad by any means, though.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2005
Pours a nice reddish brown color. Aromas of dark fruits, nut, hops, and a touch of wood. Flavor is smooth caramel malt, wood, and a nice hop.

radagast83 (5417) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Bottle. Nutty aroma, with a malty hint. Has a light, sweet flavor, much like a toffee or caramel.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Light chestnut colored body with a less than average sized head. The aroma is mildly malty… sweet, with a hint of maple syrup and toffee. The flavor is actually milder than the aroma… a bit bready, like a liquid version of the most tasteless granola bar you have ever had. There is a delicate hint of citric hops in the finish…. A nice session beer at best, but there really isn’t a great deal of anything at all going on for me.

Ratman197 (10820) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with an amber head. Aromas of roasted malt, toffee, and orange. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roasted malt, dark bread and a bit of orange with a smooth, slightly bitter lingering finish.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Brownish amber colour with a thin off-white head. Citrus, bready, and toffee aroma. Bread, toffee, orange and light alcohol flavours. A bit light in body but smooth.
