3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
First tasted this at the Glasgow Winter Beer Festival in February 1997. Cask, gravity dispense. Ruby black in colour with a thin off white head. Sweet toffee notes in the powerful malty aroma. Creamy but thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malts give a moist maltloaf base with sweet juicy damsons, sultanas and prunes mixed with treacle toffee notes. There is a slight prickle of earthy hops in the aftertaste but this is short lived. Robust powerful malt returns with booming notes of dry oak cask and vinous fruit. A superb, strong Old Ale in style and highly recommended.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Pours a dark amber with a pillowy head. I really can’t fault the appearance; the head sticks around and spins a web of lace as the glass empties. Wow... a huge malty aroma that I can’t quite get on with. Smooth caramel taste that is particularly sweet. Lands somewhere between a bitter and a barley wine without ever quite making sense. Still, worth a try.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep red colour. Strong fruity aroma. Very rich and silky texture. Flavour is sweet like the juice of dark red fruits. The finish is altogether much drier though giving a nice balance.
