DSG (5730) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 7, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at my place. Thanks kerenmk. Deep ruby red color. Aroma of dusty stale-tasting malt, some caramel and light fruity notes. Sweet malty and caramelly flavor, a bit sugary, with candy hints and light fruitiness. Medium-bodied.

laiti (5629) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2012
17 cl bottle vintage 1977 @ vPBF. Thanks Pat!
Aroma has some raisins, cardboard and some moldy cellar. Flavour has some metal, moldy cellar, hints of raisins and sugar. Feels like most of the flavour bouquet is gone.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2006
Aroma is rich and fruity quite spicey and some yeasty candy sugar. Taste is similarly complx maybe not as well blended as some of the style but defo a good effort and the best iv had from marstons.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2002
Sweet, oaty start, dry-ish hoppyness towards the finish, some light peaty and smokey flavours, and a bit of oak, some mollasses in there aswell, not real elegant, but not too bad either. Not overly complex, but it occasionally surprised me on the odd sip.

SilkTork (5189) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2002
Not as famous nor as well balanced as Old Peculiar or Old Speckled Hen, this is none the less a decent quality old style beer.
