Aroma of caramel malts and raisins. Not too good.. Hazy, brown coloured with a thin, lasting brownish head. Taste is sweet-caramel, malty, sugar and fruits. More bitterness towards the finish. Smooth palate. Quite okay. Typical english ale.

Pours darkish brown with a very light head. Aroma is sweet malts and caramel. Flavor is not quite as sweet as I feared, but quite sweet anyway. Decent.

Tried some of this since Mike Enderby likes it and had it in the flat. Initial tan head looked promising but didnít last long. Nice attractive red brown colour. Initial fruity sweet aroma. Can smell the alcohol but itís not overpowering. Flat, heavy initial taste and then toffee followed by fruit and tingle on the side of the tongue. Not much lacing going on. Dryness makes you want to have another sip but for me, there appears to be too much sugar. A cheap sherry with sprinkings of dust comes to mind. Not sure why I donít like this as much as I think I should. Maybe itís just too sweet for me.

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.

Bottled: Burgundy colour. Clear. Light brown head. Very sweet and malty. Has some alcohol notes. Is rather bland and vague in the flavour notes. Ends on a swet and malty note.

Cask. Good head and sits nicely in the glass. Flavour starts well, with a lot of spicy fruit, but is a little too soupy, and lingers with a sharp and cloying alcohol on the back of the tongue. Classic good start, bad finish.

Wow this hurts your head cos you donít realise the percentage, the taste is sweet but expected because of the high alcohol, very dark and fruity, a really great strong ale.
