haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2005
Cask (gravity) at Burton Winter Ales Festival 2005. Fond memories of my youth with this, terrorising the Gatehouse Theatre in Stafford for what was the strongest ale available on tap in the town. Itís still got that dark sickly sweetness to it, smells like liquidised fruit cake, tastes like a boozy fruit cake, lets you know itís nearly 8% with a slightly curdling aftertaste but still reasonable strong ale.

Dalle (1145) - SkÝrping, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2005
Bottle. Red-brown with a beige collapsing head. Chewy sweet maltiness, dark fruits, raisins, finish keeps some balance. Low carbonation making it slightly watery.

knickskicks (1143) - - SEP 5, 2012
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.

scotty (1137) - SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2007
Had this after the appaling Peeterman Artois, and its a case of chalk & cheese. This has so much flavour, rich and slightly sweet, a wonderful balance of malt and hoppy fruit. Good chestnut colour with a good offwhite head, ends with a satisfying lingering finish, classy stuff! Bottle from Morrisons.

ciocanelu (1134) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 24, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 500 ml bottle, poured into a pint. Color is black-reddish. Large head that stays a while and leaves a thin layer. Aroma is roasted malt and booze. Taste is also dominated by roasted flavors and also a hint of liquorice . Not as boozy as the aroma suggested. Body feels medium and is well carbonated. Overall this is an interesting beer. Very drinkable at itís 7.4 ABV.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2005
Cask. Good head and sits nicely in the glass. Flavour starts well, with a lot of spicy fruit, but is a little too soupy, and lingers with a sharp and cloying alcohol on the back of the tongue. Classic good start, bad finish.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - DEC 8, 2010
Bottle. Reddish brown colour with a medium-sized beige head. Malty aroma with hints of caramel and dried fruits. Sweet flavour with malt, caramel, raisins and alcohol. Aftertaste is dry and bitter.

GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2006
[Bottle from BeersofEurope] Big malty aroma, raisins, orange peel, spicey, alcohol. well bodied but feels a little vacuous and the palate is marred by some tinny notes.
