notalush (4823) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2003
Aroma is roasty and lightly fruity - tiny bit of lacing - a well-hopped English Strong - tiny bit of spice - a bit lacing in body and complexity - this seems very similar to their 46er IPA, the only real difference is the roasty quality to the flavor and aroma and the slightly higher maltiness.

Opaque chocolate brown. Light brown head. Malty, nutty aroma w/ light alcohol. Body is a little on the light side of medium, perhaps over-carbonated. Nutty, caramel flavour w/ some chocolate & roastiness & a decently bitter, lightly alcoholic finish.

Art of Beer Festival 2004: Has a dark brown color with some lacing and a malted smell. Taste is somewhat smoked malt and finishes with a moderate bitterness. Overall an ok beer, but nothing too special.

Gorbalev (2912) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2004
Buffalo Brewfest 04. Dark brown pour, hops and malt in aroma. Taste was creamy at first with a decent malt body and noticeable, but hardly overwhelming hops - a sweet taste. Had no idea it was 7%. Good beer.

jimhilt (2397) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Pours with a five+ finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color. Light carbonation. Nose is faintly malty. Medium bodied. Starts and finishes with a balance of malt and hops, the high ABV is not noticable. $1.85 for a 12oz bottle from Hoosick Street Discount Bev. Troy, NY.

Cletus (6354) - 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 Iíve had.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2005
A nice hops flavor to this one, a bit of pepper, and enough malt flavor, creates a well balanced brew, I could drink this one everyday! Thanks Secret santa!

Pailhead (4742) - Brownstown, 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 wasnít for the nuttiness in the finish, it would somewhat be like a flemish sour. Iím sure this is a "bad" bottle, but I think the sourness probably makes the beer better in my opinion.
