yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 10, 2005
Tasted 09/11/2005. 500ml bottle from Liquorland, Miramar. Deep ruby with an oily, light tan, head that slowly vanishes. Big caramel nose that also comes through in the flavour, with dried fruits (both prunes and raisins) and a subtle woodiness. This beer hint’s of a good quality rum, with coke - in a good way. Very seet in the middle. Softly carbonated and medium bodied. Slightly oily mouthfeel and dry finish suggest that there are more hops and roast malt than the nose or flavour suggest. Not everday drinking but not bad.

Maybe the taste of plums, raisins, prunes and other dark fruits is just meant to become more pleasant as one grows older. I certainly like it in beer, which makes me quite positive about this beer. Although it is on the light side in the dark fruit department, it still makes up for a good beer It’s supplement of nice malty tones combined with it’s taste of Grandma, makes me consider buying a vintage Ford A and go off on a voyage to the "old" days (and I’m only 30?!)

Martin243 (742) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2011
500ml bottle from B&M. Fruity-Toffee aroma from a beautiful ruby red beer. White head which quickly disappeared. Sweet heavy, and sticky caramel toffee syrupy flavours. Little carbonation, which would liven this beer up. Alcohol dominant. Not bad, but a little too sweet, a little too flat, and a little too sticky to be really good. Wouldn’t want to drink more than one (at a time.)

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.

I was a bit disappointed. A bit too sweet and dull taste. Quite one-sided too.

Kick Ass! Definately one of Marstons finest. Deep dark colour with a great taste and enjoyable fruity notes. Its all a matter of taste really as I think the lack of masses hoppy bitterness is definately a plus. Great beer.
