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.

Pours a ruby color with little bit of head. Smells of dark fruit and malt. Taste is a touch of chocolate on the initial taste followed by some dark fruit and caramel malt and finally a bit of floral hops. A solid brew.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful dark ruby color with a think lasting head. Nose of fruit, possibly rasberries or cranberries with a slight nuttiness. Taste is smooth with malty overtones. Hop presence is lacking, but this really is a good beer from FD. Flying dog was the brewery that got me into the game long ago, glad to see that they can still put out a great winter brew. I really like this one.

12 bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a mahogany brown with a thin persistant head. It has a watered down malty smell. It has a taste reminicent of a well-crafted amber with an oatmeally finish. Very parculiar actually. There are very mild fuel tones and itís a little bit sweet. Itís not bad but it would be better if the alcohol content were upped. For some reason I had this beer listed as a K9 Cruiser Attitude beer at 7.3% in my personal notes from last year.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2006 Poured a deep reddish brown in the pint glass. Malty aroma that is reflected strongly in the roasted flavor (which I like). Lightly hopped. Very tasty and enjoyable.

Looks dark amber red. Smells of just a little bit of nuts, and breads. You can almost tell whats coming, just by the smell. Average carbonation, very malty, and smooth & oily palate. I find, maybe a little bit of a chocolate, roastiness. little hops present. I think the english strong ale title refers more to the maltiness than anything. Overall itís really a great winter brew. One of the best FD brews.

Flying Dog has shown us that they are capable of making some amazing brews, such as Gonzo Imperial Porter and Wild Dog. Here, Iím afraid, we have a bit of a whupped puppy. Looks great, a deep reddish amber with a creamy tan head. But the aroma is simply a sweet, bready malt. Thereís a bit of nutty bitterness adding some character to the flavor, but little more. Iím not sure how this is an English strong ale. Drinkable.

Kind of disappointing for a Flying Dog. Both appearance and scent are weak and have a watered-down quallity. The strongest element is the malty tones that are various and rich. It seems like this beer was rushed somewhere in the process.

Bottle. Pours a nice dark amber with a thin tan head. Very little aroma. It has an interesting flavor, that makes it a pretty easy to drink strong ale. Nice malty finish. This gets better as it warms up.
