4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Easily the best tasting real ale I tried in my 2 trips to England and I tried quite a few. Fruity and smooth. I only wish it was available in Canada. There are a number of English real ales to be had here but none can come close.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from B&M Bargains, Stretford Mall 
Dark caramel brown, light beige frothy head that dissipates
Aroma of rich fruity caramel malts, touch of alcohol
Taste of rich fruity caramel, soft toffee, little hops, mainly quite heavy sweet brown malts, touch of raisin, soft toffee malts, soft syrupy malts, alcohol a bit noticeable but ok, dab of some hedgerow fruits, the taste of rich malts is nice in this, simple for the abv
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, smooth texture. Sweet. Finish as main flavour, sweet malts, dab of warming alcohol
Overall - Just sweet fruity malts, same malts from aroma right to the finish. OK for under £2

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

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong ale (or rather an old ale?) with sticky, light beige, creamy head and dark bronze colour with ruby hue, clear. Aroma of grassy and peppery hops, chocolate, lots of vanilla, candi syrup, caughing candy, pear, coffee liqueur. Soft fruitiness, malty caramel and chocolate, relatively light mouthfeel in relation to its strength, gentle hops in the finish with a bit of cloying sweetness. Very good and I would not be surprised if this improves significantly with ageing.

Absolutely solid performer. Almost a Stout beer - and definitely full of malts. I love this beer, the strength almot undiscernible due to the quality of flavours..

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 it’s 7.4 ABV.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Tesco (I think). Poured ruby with a rapidly dissipating off white head. Sweet, malt heavy aroma with some sticky fruit and cream soda. Initial flavour is dates, burnt sugar and chewy grain. Finish was far more alcoholic than one might expect for the strength and quite sickly sweet.
