(bottle) Almost clear, amber colour with a copper shine and a dense mid-sized and tanned foamy head. Bready and slightly toasted malty aroma with caramel, vinous fruity and alcoholic notes. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Toast-malty, slightly bready taste with caramel, subtle fruity notes of raisins; almost dry sweet-bitter malt-accented and slightly fruity finish with a tinge of alcohol. Likeable and warming brew. 19.IX.10

2010-07-11. Dark brown body, small tan head. 3+ Flavour is richly malty, with a very English malt character to it. Very mild toasty malt accents. Subtle nuance. Bit of warming yet subtle alcohol. 7+ Mildly alcoholic aroma, mdoest sweet malt, hints of caramel and toasty malt. 6+ Very smooth medium bodied palate is lightly carbonated. Surprisingly tasty, rich but straightforward for the most part. Bottle from The Grog Shop, Oxford

Bottle 500ml. Dark reddish-brown color and small white head. Aroma of licorice (more when warmer), burnt sugar, caramel and dried fruits. Full body. Very sweet taste of malt, chocolate, licorice and a bitter-sweet finish. Almost a little too sweet for me, and I like sweet.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2009
Draught. Bitter & Twisted Beer Festival. Pours a really nice golden brown with a slightly reddish tint. Small tan head that fell away pretty quickly. Really nice caramel and toffee aromas. Some nut and toasted aromas also. Flavours are quite malty with plenty of toffee. Dome bitterness on the finiish but nicely balance. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Nice beer.
