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

Very subtle aroma. Dark brush and mildly fizzy. Thick caramel saying with a sticky throaty experience. Quite gorgeous.

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 Itís supplement of nice malty tones combined with itís taste of Grandma, makes me consider buying a vintage Ford A and go off on a voyage to the "old" days (and Iím only 30?!)

Sweet caramel aroma. Ruby coloured with short lived tan head and a bit too much carbonation. Very thick. Sweetish malt & yeast flavour. Minor roasted bitterness. Slightly more flavour than Moretti La Rossa but twice as expensive.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 hintís 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.

Bottle. Pours a clear deep ruby brown colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of dark fruits like plum and raisin, also burnt sugar, treacle, caramel, berry sweetness and a little spice. Taste of plum pudding, raisin, treacle, liquorice, alcohol and chocolate. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation and a syrupy texture. A warming, bittersweet fruity finish. The best beer Iíve had from Marstonís. A pleasant, flavourful, warming winter beer, but I have had better, similar beers.
