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

Poured to a brownish re, with medium off-white head that dissiopated fairly quickly, to a little lacing. Initial aroma was dark fruit, mostly plums and raisins. Flavor at first was more of the malty dark fruit. As bottle warmed, the alcohol, though only 6.2%, became more evident in both the aroma and taste. This beer was a little like a Braleywine, but not quite there. This was not one of my favorite beers from Flying Dog.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - AUG 21, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2007 Bottle at GBBF 06’: sweet (a bit too much), molasses, honey, very matly and very fruity, dried fruits, some delicate roasted and hoppy bitterness, lots of spices (cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon?), overall a great beer.

Mahagony color. Nice malty and caramely nose. Same applies for the taste with some smokey traces.

Deep, dark, reddish color with a small-yet-creamy tan head that lingers on as a thick film. Dark fruits, citrus and raspberry in the aroma with dark chocolate, cereal and light esters. Solid body with a dry creaminess in the mouth. Flavor finds a fruity, bittersweet conglomeration of malts and hops with all the goodies we’d found in the aroma based atop a heap of DME and finishing with both a juicy kiss of citrus and a bitter lick of java. I just can’t stop liking this one.

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle. Reddish brown color with decent head. Lightly citrusy and floral aroma with notes of toffee and melon. Mellow and rounded flavor with coffee, toffee, licorice, light fruityness, light bitterness and some floral-citrusy hop flavor. Good finish with coffee, sweetness and floral-citrusy hops. Pleasant and mellow, interesting mix of mild roastedness and hops.

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2006
Bottle at The White Horse, Parson’s Green. Chestnut brown with a very small head, that is nonetheless quite stable. Sweet aroma of raisins and dried fruits. Flavours are cellar-like and surprisingly dry finish; raisins and dark fruit throughout, yet also very good bitterness. Full-bodied and rather soft. An explosion of flavours, yet still harmonious. A masterpiece of a beer.
