Bottle, 7.5%. Good malty aroma, sweet, dried fruit, orange. Cloudy orange amber colour. The flavour has much of the same as the aroma, dried fruit, some yeast and pepper. Good.

harrisoni (13144) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2006 Bottle from Cask & Glass, Tonbridge. Reddy brown colour with lasting beige head. Lovely aroma of christmas cake and intense hop. Sweet and strong, but hop balances it. Spicey/citrus hop is stunning underpinned by brown sugar and dry grainy malt. Finish has more intense hop. My 2nd Hogs Back strong bottled beer and just as impressive. Lots of orange peel, spice and malt. Gorgeous Re-rate Cask gravity at Red Lion, Snargate. Sweet, raspberry/strawberry fruit is stunning. Then a decent handful of grapefruit hop, but not too much, producing a dry finish. Malt is a little bit syrupy. Bit of yeasty sourness on aroma and then this huge hit of malt, but the hop dryness never lets it get too flabby. Lovely. It took my a good 50 minutes to drink a pint of it and I can honestly say that I felt different after I finished it, to when I started. Wonderful beer. 4.1/5

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2006
Bottled. (As Wobble in a Bottle) Brownish orange and hazy, with a beige head. Looks really deliciuos. Hops, a light maltiness, and some caramel in the aroma. Quite volatile. The flavor has a good dash of alcohol, with caramel sweetness and some hoppiness. Fullbodied beer, and a finish with alcohol and hops. (060604)

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2011
Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Halloween BF 2011. Pours clear, rich ruby with a faint, white head. Tons of ripe fruits on the nose. Flavor is very sweet, lots of rich bread, cake, ripe and slightly tangy fruits, berries. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish, loads of ripe fruits, light caramel, toasty sugar. Very decent strong ale.

Maria (10121) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2007
Mahogany red with a huge, golden head. The aroma is spicy, lightly malty and fruity. The flavour is full-bodied and complex, and it leads the thought a bit in the direction of Belgium. It has notes of dark fruit, raisin and plum, caramel licorice, spice and a light hint of grapefruit in the dry finish. It’s a really nice beer.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2012
Bottled, 275ml a Christmas gift from Sandra. Reddy amber with no head. Full, fruity, viney beer, smooth and blackberry flavour, some peatiness in the background. The hops have been overtaken by the alcohol but all in all fairly decent.
