Rutland Beast is strong yet exceptionally balanced. Dark earthy brown in colour, its fantastic flavours blend together to produce a mind blowing great beer.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2005
Cask @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Dark ruby. Mellow malty. Medium sweet. Touch of salmiak, dark bread (limpa in Swedish) and coffee. Roasted aftertaste. Not too bitter. Nice. (Stout? No, to me this is more of a Scot ale)

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2008 Leicester ’Spoons. Tempting ruby with a VERY stable thick beige collar and clinging lace. Faint choc, yeasty apple and cereal aroma deadened by that collar. Flavour another matter. Luscious dusty choc malt, sultana apple fruit (strudle), lovely faint smoke and choc clinging to the palate. The best English beer at over 5% I’ve had in a long, long while. Clean, rounded, beautifully fresh and packed with gently roasty malt chocolate goodness. Milky still. Can’t really fault this beer. Drinks smooth but deep and tasty like a really full mild, not a stout. HAIL THE BEAST. Glad I popped in.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 At Rutland Beer Festival ... Appearance of coca-cola (minus the gas). Very toffee smell (lovely!) warm orange and toffee taste. No bitterness (unlike at spoons last time I tried.) Much better

leaparsons (9677) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2002
Dark purple-red in colour. This is a fruity vineous beer with a light dry finish. The fruit flavours are almost juicy in the mouth.

planky84 (2748) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2011
Cask at NWAF, 2011. Brown pour with a beige head. Raisins, pear, red apples and peach in the nose. Very fruity. Crisp apple bite in the flavour, definitely an orchard fruit feel to it. Unsurprisingly a fruity finish.

Erzengel (7403) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2014
Intense malty. The mainpart is malty, fresh-intense, fruity smooth. Slightly roasted in the aftertaste, malty with bitter hints. Great!
