Aroma is caramel malts, honey some molasses and dark fruits. Taste is big body malts, sugar, dried fruits, salt and some licorish. Aftertaste is some bitterness which is perfectly balanced making ths a nice brittish strong ale.

Lovely hoppy aroma, sweetness there too. Strenght of this brew is apparent in the taste but the malt backs the old man alcohol down and the bitter end high fives you like a champ. Almost too easy to drink and woo then you are drunk. But who is complaining, this is good stuff.

Nagyon tetszetős mély és tiszta rubin szín. Erős almás malátás illat és persze ott tolakodik a masszív alkohol bukéja a sarkában.
Testes édes ami nekem nem szokott annyira passzolni de kíséri egy kellemes nem túl harsány komlósság. A vége édes, ragdós és sűrű. Finom.
Milyen lehet frissen csapról? Hmmm...

Clear, amber beer with a small white head. Some sweetness on the nose, peach. The body is medium plus. Mouth feel is soft and round. Alcohol warms things up. Sweet caramel, malts, slight and round bitterness, a hint of berries. Very good.

amazingly rich treacle, toffee and malt in the nose, Poured a slightly hazy coppery red, palate is dominated by flavour hops, which detracted form the thick sweetness a little, dare I say I would have preferred this if it had a little less hops..

50cl bottle: Reddish brown colour with a vanishing head. Very malty aroma with hints of oxidation, yeast and herbal and tobacco-like hoppiness. The mouthfeel is really full, in the flavour, there’s a big cookie-and-caramel-type sweetness, which is okay but bordering on becoming cloying - and that’s an adjective I don’t use inflationary. I mean, if you can’t stand sweetness in a beer, you should probably avoid this. I thought it was actually a pretty decent sipper. There was a nice "british" hoppiness and slight roastiness to counteract a little.
