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?!)

Dark with not much head. Sweet malts with forest fruit flavours. Smooth mouth feel, remarkably drinkable for its strength.

ianwelby (865) - SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Clear, dark red beer with a filmy head. Smell s of earthy malt but not much else. Taste is malty too but with rich fruit and some caramel there too. Really nice and hearty.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2002
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.

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 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.

RobBestwick (732) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 20, 2003
Bottled: pours with a dark brown hue and a nice thick and frothy head, malts are dominant but there are some interesting fruit notes together with smoked and woody tones, full bodied, very enjoyable.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2002
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.

ciocanelu (591) - 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.
