4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong ale celebrating the 150th birthday of the brewery in 1995. Refermented in the bottle. Creamy, beige, irregular foam leaving pretty lacing, bright copper colour; assertive aroma of raspberry, strawberry, sweet cherries, caramel, flowers. Complex fruity and malty taste, mouth-filling bitterness of toasted malts, refined, nutty, long and very dry, very satisfying finish. One of their best.

Aroma frutado e adocicado. Coloração marrom avermelhada com excelente carbonatação e boa formação de espuma (boa retenção da mesma). Sabor levemente adocicado e com boa torrefação. Retrogosto amargo e com lembranças de café. Ótima opção de cerveja.

bottle. Amber with two finger head. Caramel malt base, a bit sweet with some hop bitterness in the finish. It’s an easy drinker, but not overly flavorful or unique. Not bad at all, but certainly not what I expected for such a highly rated beer.

Bottle, 500ml. A chestnut beer with a medium size creamy head and some lacing. It has a roasted aroma of dry fruits, spices, caramel and alcohol. Taste is bitter, slightly stronger at the end. This beer is somewhat dense, yet I find it drinkable and warming. It has a strong aftertaste with a malt character.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 500ml. Clear reddish copper with a creamy beige head with foamy lacing. Spicy, roasted aroma, with hints of dry fruits and toffee. Rich and smooth, with flat carbonation. Deep spicy character and pleasant dark maltiness, with a heavy alcohol and bitter finish. Very drinkable, but definitely on the strong side.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear dark copper, stable offwhite head. Aroma has malt, toffee, dried fruit and alc. Flavour is similar with boozy/vinous notes. Quite complex and well balanced. Finish is spicy and boozy, a little rough perhaps.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of my very favourite English ales out of a bottle. Complex, strong, and balanced. Would live to try from cask.

A rich, malty, fruit cake of a beer with complex dark flavours that explore the mouth. Smooth mouthfeel. One for after Christmas dinner.
