3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle, vintage 2009) Clear, amber to copper colour with a mid-sized and slightly tanned foamy head. Mildly toasted malty aroma with rich caramelly notes, accompanied by shades of citrus, liquorice, an oaky vanilla touch and alcohol. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Caramel-malty, subtle fruity taste with liquorice-spice and slightly oaky/woody accents; sweet and slightly bitter malt-accented and slightly spicy finish with an almost warming alcoholic note. Has some drinkability for sure. 03.IX.10

Bottle from my local Sainsbury. Poured an orange gold colour with a thin white head. Toffee, spice, some tobacco, malt quite strong. Not bowled over but certainly a passable effort and quite enjoyed it. Cheers.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Morrisons. Amber with a white head. Initially rather toffee sweet but the flavour profiles develop in a fascinating way as the beer warms and my pallet tunes in. A very subtle bret tang comes through along with some nuttyness and dusty hops. In the end a rewarding experience and a good example of why I don’t like to rate on a sip.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml from Tesco, Banbury. Deep Orange Amber with white head. Rich malty flavours initially, with a molasses grainy effect, burnt and mouthcoating, then an unfortunate pasteurisation, cardboardy note followed by a fruity, sugary finish. Shame about the middle part as it was proving to be a very decent beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2010 Poured into Trappist Glass. Fairly clear reddish colour, small off-white head. Aroma is quite malty; grains and caramel as well as a little fruity. The taste is malty with a nice bitterness to it, mores so towards the finish. This beer is quite light and thin on the palate with some lively carbonation. Overall a decent brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep copper bronze body, dense offwhite head hangs around.
Quite rich aroma, malty with notes of toffee, brown sugar, and dark grain bread. Underlying complexities of rum and raisin.
Rich sticky body, moderate carbonation, warming dryness towards the finish.
Brown sugar and bitter orange citrus hop on the body leads onto woody spice and raisin. Finish is bitter with vinous notes.
Lovely complex and rich English strong ale. Very good!
