Poured from the bottle with a slight tan head which left a thin lacing on the glass. It was dark brown in color with a malty nose. This is a very nice and tasty beer. Most suitable for the cold fall and winter months, as it is a rich, thick and warming beer.

Voodoo (444) - 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.

sailracer (441) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small but thick head. The aroma is toasted malt with little hops. The flavor and aftertaste is slightly sour and thin. Ok overall

TomTron (427) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - JAN 28, 2014
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.

basspro76 (423) - New York, USA - FEB 18, 2010
Picked up a 6 pack at a local beer distributor. Almost like a lightweight stout, this beer has a deep chocolaty smokey flavor. Goes down effortlessly with little to no aftertaste. A unique and delicious beer.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Dark brown with reddish/amber hues and a small tan head that quickly dissipates. Faint aroma of roasted malt. Medium bodied with good mix of chocolate and roasted malt nuttiness. Underlying hop flavors are also apparent. This one was a nice surprise.

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

MarkBarnes (393) - Waterville, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2005
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.
