mikkopen (841) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 20, 2008
500 ml bottle. Colour dark reddish brown with a thin head. Aroma is rather sweet, with raisins and plumes. The taste is sweet and fruity, caramel-like. Leaves a nice warm feeling in the mouth after swallowing. Some more hoppy bitterness would have been nice, to balance the sweetness, but, all in all, a very tasty and enjoyable ale.

jmgreenuk (4475) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle from one of the supermarkets. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin frothy tan head. The aroma is big roast and a hint of yeast with some burnt treacle. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth liqourice, slightly alcoholic palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a long bitter finish. This was a lovely heart-warming beer and perhaps one of the best Iíve ever had from Marstons.

sm89walt (1758) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2009
Bottle. Dark ruby with a medium, reasonably lengthy beige head. Roasted malts, caramel, toffee and red berries on the nose with a hint of alcohol. Toffee again in the flavours with boiled sweets, a dark fruitiness and strong notes of roasted malt. Thickish mouthfeel with warming and tingling sensations in the throat and on the tongue.

Leighton (11123) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, red-brown with a slender, beige foam head. Lots of dark berries and grapes in the aroma. Medium to big sweet flavor, mostly semi-ripe berries, grapes, plums, some rich bready malts, very light bitterness but really not much at all. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Very faint alcohol warmth to finish, some sticky and toasted sugars, hints of chocolate, more berries, grapes, cherries, plums, suggestions of toffee. Iím actually somewhat fond of this beer. It drinks pretty smoothly.
