SarkyNorthener (2399) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle. Lovely dark reddish brown colour, no head. Aroma of dark fruits. The taste is sweet malts, treacle and dark fruits. A slight alcohol warmth is minor and very little bitterness. Medium bodied. This is a sweet beer but I would not say sickly. Quite good.

Leighton (11900) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, red-brown with a slender, beige foam head. Lots of dark berries and grapes in the aroma. Medium to big sweet flavor, mostly semi-ripe berries, grapes, plums, some rich bready malts, very light bitterness but really not much at all. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Very faint alcohol warmth to finish, some sticky and toasted sugars, hints of chocolate, more berries, grapes, cherries, plums, suggestions of toffee. Iím actually somewhat fond of this beer. It drinks pretty smoothly.

Traditional deliciousness from the midlands brewery you canít avoid down there. A high-ABV brew that still demands bit gulps, where you get plums, raisins, muck and general sweetness. Nice to see one of the big chains keeping summat so unique and worthy of being an end-of-week treat rather than a passable session ale. The only beer to date I have taken into a bath with me.

Delicious, thick, fruity, raisons and plums, warm and winter wonderful. More Christmassy than plum pudding! Wonderful.

McWorta (662) - LUXEMBOURG - OCT 16, 2012
Rubin red and brown in colour. On the nose develop aromas of roasted malts, caramel and chocolate. Small fast fading toast coloured head. Bit fizzy, medium-full body. Medium sweet with a touch of bitterness. Finish is dry and nice.

Bottle. Dark brown, some ruby red hues; almost purplish. Beige head fizzles away quickly. Nose is barley, booze, and berries; port as it warms. Taste is berries, alcohol, fresh water, port, and cough syrup. The hop finish is very light and overshadowed by a sweet syrup taste. Medium mouthfeel. Could benefit from a little more body.

1977 vintage! - Pours murky dark brown with a small foamy head. Aroma of slightly sweetish malts, caramel, berries. Taste is smooth and malty with some mild hints of sweetness, caramel, syrup and raisins. Finish is smooth and sweetish with some malty notes. Okay, quite well aged beer.
