Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
Dark brown and a little bit muddy. There is only a thin wisp of head. The aroma is malty with some dark fruit accents mimicking English yeast, Fuller’s wouldn’t actually surprise me at all. There are caramel notes in the malt, balanced by light plums and dark fruit. The sweetness is balanced slightly by the high alcohol and a lightly chocolatey character. Good ale when I had it years ago, and now it tastes a little old school but still good ale.

bhensonb (10808) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours very dark brown with a slight light tan head. I can get garnet, if I hold it against a strong light. Smells a little bit of wet dog (not kidding) and raisiny dark fruit. 2nd inhale elimd the dog. 3rd inhale suggests chocolate. Full bodied. Dark roast malt, and some chocolate/raisin. This one’s good for watchin a movie. It’s fairly well balanced, but tilting towards bitter. Nice ale. Been hoping for this one for several years.
