HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2005
Bottle (12oz). Poured dark clear mahogany with a small off-white head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt, tart berry fruit and a hint of mustiness. Fair hit of alcohol off the top, then the sweet light roast malt enters, balanced by fruit, average somewhat bitter linger. Very pleasant - average body, a little flat but I guess that’s the style.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 15, 2005
pours amber/brown with a small ring of white fine bubbles around the rim of the glass. Smells breaddy with some decent rose and grapefruit aromas popping through. Taste is on the nutty side like a brown ale with some mild peppery notes. A bit thin on the mouthfeel for an english strong ale, but very drinkable. A bit bland on the finish. This one has potential, but is not as balanced as other English Strongs I’ve had.

on tap at brewpub. clear medium dark brown with a nice off-white head, some retention, nice lacing. toasted and roasted malts, some phenols, english hops indeed - grassy and citrusy. not much of english biscuity malt character. average to soft carbonation, med to full body, nice grassy-citrusy finish with a touch of alcohol. good but not classic esa.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2006
Clear brown with a small white head. Nose is earthy, tobacco and horse. Taste is very malty that’s, sweet, woody, maybe a bit nutty and also… well… “hairy”!?! Something about the taste reminded me of wet fur or something of that nature. Decent beer but I like my beer like I like my women, not too hairy.

Mora2000 (6101) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a red-amber color with a white head. The aroma is toffee with some earthy and dirty hops. The flavor is toffee, earthy hops and some fruit. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Decent, but nothing special.

Braudog (6066) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Dark reddish black color. First deScription: Wow. Full of licorice and brown sugar, with an almost corn syrupy backdrop. But it’s thick like oil almost and definitely strong. (#5821, 10/10/2014)

Pailhead (6017) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of rudolf via Secret Santa. Aromas of nuts, chocolate, some mustiness, light grass, and a hint of fruit. Pours a hazy brownish-red with a small off-white head with fair retetntion. Starts of with moderate chocolate and caramel, but quickly turns to sour fruitiness in the finish. I doubt the sourness was intended, but I actually kind of like it. Hints of nuttiness in the finish behind all the sourness. If it wasn’t for the nuttiness in the finish, it would somewhat be like a flemish sour. I’m sure this is a "bad" bottle, but I think the sourness probably makes the beer better in my opinion.
