Malty nose with big notes of sweet fruits and some alcohol. Hazy dark amber body, small white head. Sweet flavored, some roast and ends quite fruity.

madsberg (10107) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2005
Bottled: Amber coloured. Unclear. Brown coloured head. Light spiced, light grassy aroma. Flavour of liqourice sweetness and spice. Ends on a light sweet note. Strange brew.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 15, 2005
pours amber/brown with a small ring of white fine bubbles around the rim of the glass. Smells breaddy with some decent rose and grapefruit aromas popping through. Taste is on the nutty side like a brown ale with some mild peppery notes. A bit thin on the mouthfeel for an english strong ale, but very drinkable. A bit bland on the finish. This one has potential, but is not as balanced as other English Strongs I’ve had.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2005 Couleur acajou aux reflets rouge extrême. Mousse beige pale et crémeuse, plutôt persistante, adhérant partiellement au verre et se résumant éventuellement à laisser une fine couche sur le dessus du verre. Arômes de malt hautement grillé et de toast sous une touche doucement fruitée. Saveurs toujours très grillées presque chocolatées sur une adéquate présence de houblon floral aux évidentes réminiscences anglaises. La touche fruitée détectée en arôme rappelle maintenant les poires bien mures et rappelle presque une oktoberfest lorsque combiné au malt grillé…quoique que trop extrême pour jumeler la douceur de ce style. Étalement court, corps d’épaisseur moyenne, carbonatation douce et faiblement piquante. Supérieur à mes irraisonnables attentes.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2005
Bottle: Poured a medium black color ale with a nice foamy off-white head with standard retention. Aroma of roasted malt is kind of weak and I could not find anything else really. Taste is also a bit thin with some roasted malt and not much else going on. As mentioned, body is thin and carbonation is low I’ve had much better beer form that style to truly care about that one.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very deep red with a foamy light tan head. Nice malty aroma with some light flowery hops. Nice sweet malt flavor with some hops bitterness. The 7% ABV is well hidden. Very enjoyable beer.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2005
on tap at greylodge - dark dark red color - like burnt copper. aroma is all malt - no discernable hop aroma. flavor is big and thick, but not syrupy or sickly sweet. mostly malt with caramel flavors. enjoyable, but one was enough for me.

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 12, 2005
Strange name. Different label on the bottle I had. Heavy indeed, and an flavor teetering off vanilla. Still a rich experience, but don’t have too many or they’ll go to yer head.

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours into pint glass with an average head, fizzy and off-white. Body is clear and brownish ruby colored. Aroma is pleasing with some floral hop notes. The flavor is good malty with a decent hop finish. Largest problem is the mouthfeel for me, kind of fizzy and thin. Surprised to learn this is 7%, wouldn’t have guessed over 5%. In all a decent beer but isn’t something to expend alot of effort to track down.
