Nutty and malty nose with a hint of minty aroma hops. Beautiful mahogany with a creamy, but dissappointingly flighty head. Eanglish malt dominates the flavor with a sharp lingering hop bite on the end. Slightly tangy, slightly sweet, this brew hides its ample alchohol content very well. I really like this one. There are far too few decent east coast strong ales.

Reddish brown with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma, maybe a touch of cocoa. Flavor is full of roasted malts and nuts, with mild bitterness. Nice smooth texture.

I got tipped to this beer while visiting my local liquor locker, and great tip it was, too. beautiful, deep garnet color, wonderful nose and very nice mouthfeel combine to make this a worthy addition to your stash. Malty and rich-tasting, it could easily serve as a session beer, but enjoyed it with my dinner of meat loaf and potatoes smothered with brown gravy and onions. First LP beer Iíve tried--at least as far as I can remember--and itís a winner in my book.

ClarkVV (3891) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 31, 2005
2004 bottle, a bit of age behind it. Dark mahogany-ruby-brown. Big, yellow-tan head, quite lasting. Sediment in the bottom of the bottle, unpasteurised as well. Looking at my notes, this beer was quite the wild ride. It begins with a floral hops aroma, with some light mocha in the background. Light roast, anise and a strong black malt influence, or deeply kilned chocolate malt, that might be a bit too overdone. Flavor begins with lovely roasted pork, coffee, smoke, floral/minty hops. Mint sauce with lamb, toasted almonds and bitterness to finish. It seems to be going wonderfully, but then the notes take a turn and suggest that it has too bitter, earthy hops, rooty bitterness, celery stalks, ginger-like spiciness. Hops take over as it warms.

skisangelo (60) - Collingswood, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2005
It poured a dark ruby color and thick foamy tan head that vanished quickly. Smells of both sweet malt and strong hops, and this carries through nicely to the taste. Itís moderately hopped, but not dominated by it, there is a nice maltiness as well. Rather drinkable, especially if youíre looking for a nice ale with a sweet taste.

swirl (267) - collingswood, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2005
A new beer to the S. Jersey market. Pours a deep red color with not much of a head. The hops mix nicely with the malt to give it an alluring aroma. The strong hop presence gives this beer a strong taste.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Poured a very dark ruby color with a medium off white head. Aroma of dark fruit, malt, and chocolate. Flavor of caramel malt that becomes bitter quickly finishing with a dry bitter dark chocolate taste. Smooth light to medium body.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Deep and clear rosewood color with a small off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with a touch of caramel and vanilla. Great earthy flavor with a little chocolate and toasted malt riding a sweet malty backbone with just a little hoppy bitterness to balance everything out. Finish was very dry and very much in line with classic English Ales. My only real criticism was that the mouthfeel was definately thin, otherwise, I really liked this beer and I could easily drink far too many of them at a time.

ABUSEDGOAT (2321) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Pours a brownish body with a moderate head. Aroma is caramel and a little bit of fruit. When tasting thereís a nice hint of chocolate in there that makes it worthwile.

Draft at the Drafting Room. Amber/copper colored, woth caramel malt, toffee, and hop aroma. Tastes malty, with hops, caramel, and cognac at the finish. Smooth, with well hidden alcohol. Undeniably quaffable.
