Bottle. Poor foam. Clean amber colour. Sweet caramel, herbal, some spiciness and bit of diacetyl in aroma. Sweet malty toasty body, with interference spicy flavour. Moderate bitterness and sweetness in aftertaste. Poor carbonation. That bottle wasnít quite, what I expected. :(

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle BB March 2014. Pours a clear amber orange/brown. Initial head dies down after a matter of seconds. Smell is classic íold aleí, yeasty with some pungent caramel. Body is medium and slightly foamy. Taste has more caramel, spice, raisin. Quite sweet. Slightly drying finish. Not quite to my taste, but it seems a well made beer. A sipper.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper orange beer with a creamy head disappearing quite quickly. The aroma is caramelly malty with some alcohol. The flavor is mostly caramelly malty sweet with the alcohol coming through. Thereís a little amount of bitterness. The palate is sticky and pretty full. I would have expected something more refined or complex from this beer, now itís just mostly alcoholic.

Appearance....... amber/copper beer with head colour white of almost 2 fingers

Taste........ fenolic with a sweet malty touch, bitterness appears soon lasting all the time, with a dry finish
Mouthfeel........... medium/full body and medium/soft carbonation
Overall............ a very nice strong ale, bitterness is present but in a perfect combination with malt and alcohol. One of my favourites, definitely a great English ale in his section (strongs ales) .

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 Op het eerste gezicht veel koolzuur. Weinig geur. Nootjes geur.
Lichte alcohol branding in buik. Nootjes smaak. Alcohol brand niet in de mond maar wel in je buik. Niet lekker. Niks bijzonders.
Helaas kan ik niet meer noteren als deze rating. Dit komt doordat ik dit biertje te slecht vond om er meer over te kunnen noteren.
