Dark brown pour with a dense, foamy head. Big time roasted malt aromas and some earthy hops. Flavor is straight-forward malty sweetness. For a strong ale this is quite weak but overall itís highly drinkable.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2006 Oct. 3, 2005 - 12 oz. bottle. A hearty Autumn/Winter brew. Sweet flavor is of red wine, smoke, fruit -- balanced nicely by a strong hop presence. The higher ABV is noticeable, but warms without overpowering the brew. Will be having this one again over the Winter, Iím sure. Re-rate on Dec. 29, 2006: Bumped up the aroma score from "4" to "7". This is definitely more enjoyable in a Trappist glass.

Draft. 7% ABV was kicking. A deep garnet red in color with a hint of fruit, wine like. Very nice. Warm taste,

AdamSkillin (376) - High Bridge, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2007
A nice browner brown ale, just enough bitterness to even it out, and a slight hint of chocolate maltiness

This had a beautifully dark red color to it, with a thick tan head. It had a hint of ginger and chocolate in both its aroma and taste.

12 oz. Pours black with dark red highlights. Small-ish white head. Smells like London. Tastes like London. Really like the complexity of flavors. More depth than most. Iím really surprised that this beer came from a semi-local brewery. Will enjoy again!

Voodoo (347) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2012
Pours a deep brown with a nice dense head. Quite flavorful with a touch of raisins, toffee and a light bittering. Admittedly smooth and almost crisp, not the norm for an English Strong. Nicely put together.

Reddish brown color with hints of coffee and caramel and even a little bit of chocolate. it is a great after dinner beer and has a very complex palette the only problem is you donít want to drink more then one with this ABV %!!

A tasty English strong. Spicy on the palate the beer was smooth throughout the drink. I can see where people really dig this beer.
