3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bought in Špar (for 1.99 euros). It has the smell of sour malt, caramel and some woodiness. Pours a clear burgundy with a small tan head. Good lacing. Its taste is dry up front, with aromas of fruits, caramel, licorice, touch of coffee, butterscotch and a little hop bitterness in the end.
Overall a nice old dark ale for chilly evenings.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Trying the Strong Suffolk Dark Ale version. Clear deep rubby color with medium almond foam. Aromas mainly of malt that then extends to aged and very lightly boozy aromas, has hints of raisins, bread, vanila and quite sweet too. Palate, medium body, not too heavy as imagened, with mouth coating texture leaving aged caramel finish. Taste is more on sweet side, of caramel and malt in a way reminding of a bitter. Overall, nice beer, smells really nice, tastes okay, could be better but not too bad.

Sterile filtered since 2006 - cool. Darker reddish brown color, smaller head, good lace/retention. Aroma is Madeira, caramel, light oak, wood, English yeast. Medium/light body, lightly sweet. The aroma had me excited but it went downhill after that.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Chestnut brown, clear. Small ring of head in glass. Aroma is reminiscent of fruitcake. Medium body. Surprisingly lively for an aged beer---lots of prickliness on the finish, along with some slate. Medium sweet.

Dark ruby with nice head. Boozy cherry and wood barrel aroma. Woody ale with big malts kinda roasted and even slightly chocolatey. Filling and great with aged cheese as the label suggests.
