Pours deep brown, almost black, from a bottle; nice aroma of malts and hops together. Nice flavor that is suitable for the season; caramel malts with a hoppy punch. Better than the other 2 I’ve had from Full Sail ,the IPA and the Pale Ale.

This is a good winter ale. Aroma could be a little more interesting; however, the taste is spot on with plenty of the roasty richness you look for in an English strong. This finish is rich with a sharp bitter ending. Overall, very nice.

"good winter beer. i think this is prototypical spiced old ale, which is to say it’s quite tasty. very malty up front, but still has enough hops for a slightly bitter finish. well done."

Nice and meaty English ale, dark copper colored with small creamy beige head. Light nutty aroma, flavor is more earthy, nutty, dark malts with a small hops bite at the end. Some lingering bitterness. Would not be out of place in a British pub next to the fire....

Pours a nice dark brown with off-white head. Malt, caramel, and spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some roasted character.

[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a deep amber-red with a small lasting frothy beige head. Aroma of spices, toasted caramel malt and light vegetal notes along with dark fruit and light sugar. Fruity flavour along with spice, a bit of alcohol, bready caramel malt, dark fruit, sugar and an average bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good, I enjoyed it.

12 oz bottle purchased at Giant Eagle on Route 8 in Pittsburgh. Immediate fruity notes and a mild bite from the hops. Medium body only --- not quite as rich as advertised.

Aroma is pretty sweet. Taste is on the lighter side, but has a blend of spices and malts. Overall pretty solid.
