toshe (14) - Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2009
Wonderful appereance, with a deep brown colour and a huge bubbly head. Malty aroma. The flavour is malty too, sweet, with traces of liquorice and caramel. Quite bitter finish. A bit unbalanced, not very complex, but anyway nice: the best Marston beer Iíve drunk so far.

sm89walt (1712) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2009
Bottle. Dark ruby with a medium, reasonably lengthy beige head. Roasted malts, caramel, toffee and red berries on the nose with a hint of alcohol. Toffee again in the flavours with boiled sweets, a dark fruitiness and strong notes of roasted malt. Thickish mouthfeel with warming and tingling sensations in the throat and on the tongue.

DuffMan (6146) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2009
Sometimes the circumstance under which a beer is consumed can elevate oneís appreciation of it. We had just arrived the cabin in Arrowtown and I drank this while the room warmed up from -2 degrees, and I must say that there could not have been a more perfect beer to help pass the time and chase the cold away. Deep copper with golden highlights. Aromas of burnt sugar and rye bread, and prunes. Delicious flavours of burnt toffee, sherry, and prunes. Full bodied, sweet but not cloying.

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2009
Dark brown body with a light brown head. Sweet aroma of dark fruits and toffee. Taste is a little syrupy, dark fruits with a little chocolate, fairly smooth with a lingering finish.

TEJA (1210) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2009
50 cl bottle at Silja Line. Big light brown foam that lasts over a deap amber ale. Small hop aroma. SWEET taste with small or possibly no bitterness. The sweetness lastsfor everand then there is another foul taste also present. Itís suprising that a recipie could last for 500 years when the product is like this. I donít know if I got a bottle direct from the brewery without proper storing but totaly unbalanced.

Bottle. [thank you, oh6gdx]
Pours deep nutty brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. Sweet malty aroma, some toffee, good roasted malts, some dried fruits and a touch of chocolate. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit roasted, some viniousness, lots of prunes and raisins. Medium sweetness, good dark roasted caramel. Fine beer.

yespr (29683) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden amber to brown with a small tan head. Mild spiced and hard roasted malty aroma. Smooth roasted flavoured towards a dark fruity note and light chocolate. Nice dark mix of flavours. Ends dark breadish and fruity into the far finish.

MiP (13046) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2008
Bottle, 7.6%. Peppery and creamy aroma. Very dark brown colour, clear and with a chestnut shine. Good sweet flavour, quite peppery, quite malty. Very nice and actually well-balanced in spite of the strength.
