3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle, unknown date. Served at around 45F.
Pours dark reddish brown with a large creamy light brown head that leaves clumpy lacing and holds a thick cap.
Aroma is cherries, caramel, toffee, dark fruits, some grassy and floral hops. Good to very good strength.
Flavor is cherries, toasted malt, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, some other dark fruit, some sweetness, mild hop bitterness on the finish with only a hint of alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied, somewhat creamy, a little sticky, good carbonation.
Very tasty English Strong Ale...kind of has some Belgian Strong Ale qualities going on as well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very deep red, almost brown. Head is non-existent. Notes of dark fruit, brown sugar and perhaps a little rum in the nose. I’m tasting a little roast that I did not pick up on in the nose. Also, this beer is not as sweet as I thought it was going to be. Ample carbonation. Actually, I’m now getting a lot of roast as it warms. This is much better than I thought it was going to be.
