2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reminiscent in many ways of a Belgian ale (though not in texture, in which it is much more an English ale), but with a lot of intrusive elements. Syrupy, medicinal quality, showing its alcohol much more than desirable. Some hints of burnt cinnamon or other autumnal flavors. (bottle)

Bottle conditioned. Ruby red, low head and condition. Aromas are muted but some malt is apparent, becoming more spicy in the mouth along with fruit. Full bodied and oily with a chalky bitter finish and a tingle of alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled as Wobble in the Bottle.at Monks Café, Stockholm. Hazy reddish orange colour, small bubbly foam. No visible carbonation. Big malty and fairly dry aroma of figs, dried apricots, coconuts, rum and tart cherries. Full-bodied and medium-sweet flavour of figs, nuts, coconuts, wood raisins and alcohol. Hot finish of orange-peels, almonds, pepper and alcohol. A classy English Strong.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great name, from an average brew. Fruity cherry nose with some apricot. Auburn color and a flat scumy head. Toasted malt with some raisin or fig. Mouth filling dryness but a dull hop character. Thin body but lots of alcohol through the entire profile. Good for a British beer but still something missing...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BCA (from Bitter virtue). Rich malty toffee aromas. Some very light hops apparent in the flavour despite this only fairly sweet. There wasnt that much of interest here.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2005 Dark orange - brown color. Spare head. Cherry band aid nose. Hoppy and grassy taste, medium lasting - kind of thin bodied.
RERATE: 7;3;4;2;9 Hazy orange, no head, liveley carbonation. Banana and vanilly nose, very doughy, sweet yeast. Suprisingly strong alcohol, cinnamon and pepper taste but the bad thing seems to be an overdose of nutmeg which lays over you tongue and leaves a long lasting terrible aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rusty brown colour with absolutely no head. Sweet floural aroma. The taste was sweet initially, then sour, then followed by bitter, but in the end all three were dominated by alcohol. I like strong beers like the rest of you freaks, but his was just to obvious it didn't make for pleasant drinking. Finally it had a savory finish to the palate.
