COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hearty British style strong ale with a deep chestnut color. This warming elixer complements stews, soups, roasts and wild game. It's magically delicious.

Bottle. Medium brown with a slight amber tint. Medium tan, fine head. Amber malt aroma with caramel, chocolate, raisins. Very sweet and biscuity, with caramel and cookies. Warm, medium to full bodied. Finish of sweet malt, then alcohol and hops. Turns bitter in the end, and lasts a while. A pretty enjoyable brew.

Malty Aroma from the bottle. Taste is mild with some spices and it ends with a watery finish. Would not drink this is if was not in the mix pack

Ron (2456) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Bottle. Orange/amber color with nice head retention and lacing. Citrus and apricot aromas to go with some malt. Starts off sweet and malty before you get the alcohol kick. Enjoyable winter brew.

jb (2156) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Interesting that its labeled English Strong. Oranges, toffee, Cinnamon aroma. Copper color with some off-white head + nice lacing pattern. English style palate, malty with some sort of English hop that is on the mild side. Nice, but not spectacular.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Bottle: Pours deep copper with an off white bubly film of head. Spicy and fruity in the nose, vague, with a touch of grain. Mild carbonation in the light body. A bit grainy in the taste with subdued husk notes and fruity off-flavors. A touch of alcohol and odd phenolic spiciness. Pretty boring.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Bottle. Pours an amber body with a white head. Fruity esters, and earthy hoppiness, a bit musky with a hint of copper. Light toasted malt and some citrus in the finish. Decent.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweet malt aroma with notes of brown sugar and caramel. Medium body. Flavor is light and balanced, similar to the aroma but with an additional earthy note. Pretty good.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2008
Pours a clear darker amber brown. No head. Nose is quite malty and caramel toned in a very minimal sense. Seems to be a leafy hint on the back side. Whew. The flavor is...tangy shall we say. The first hit almost goes right back out. The second swig is not nearly so shocking on the tastebuds, but things still arenít working here. Feel is nice, but this just isnít doing it for me. Sorry sweetheart, but youíve got to go.
