UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Duvel glas, bottle. nice head with, reddish ruby brown appearance. Caramel, oak and cherry, cookie dough, hints of raisins and citrus. Enjoyable long spicy aftertaste. One of the better British ales but nothing breath-taking. A nice and solid experience. Yes Please again sometime. Hard to get here in Sweden.

Very dark brown. Some sweet caramel malts in the aroma. Flavour is quite sweet with caramel and a hint of liquorice.

Bottle. I'm not really a fan of the dark beers, but this is an exception. It's really complex and if you think wine, you wouldn't be wrong. Would recommend in certain situations

0.5l bottle poured in a chalice.
Great beer! Classic English Ale.
A: Beautiful deep amber color with a thin beige head which dissipates quickly leaving very few lacings
S: Caramel malts (and some notes of roasted malts), toffee, dark fruits (plums and grapes, mainly), wood, brown bread, yeasts, flowery hops and a bit of alcohol in the end. Sophisticated
T: Delicious. Complex as the nose. A little bit sweet. Caramel malts and dark fruits in the beginning. Woody (reminds red wine). Very well balanced bitterness (the taste of fresh hops is impressive)
M: Medium body. Low to medium carbonation which reminds a traditional English Bitter. Delicious bitterness
D: High. Very mild and smooth Beer. A winner, no doubt!

330ml bottle from Tesco. As the name suggests this beer is dark deep amber colour with a thin off white head. Aroma has sweet stewed fruit, the taste also has this, but had a alcohol warmth, that suggests more than the 6% abv. The bottle says blended with a proportion of 5X, just not sure what the proportion would be, low I guess.
