3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sickly sweet, deep amber ale with a fine white head. Heavy & thick with dark fruit overtones, molasses, prunes & dates. Well balanced hop bite with toffee & vanilla, phenolic, a bit cloying but drinkable, slowly.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Clear deep amber with gorgeous red hues and medium off white head.
Honey like malt aromas, with some caramel, toffee, fruitcake and some grass.
Juicy malt flavor, lo-med bitterness, honey, dried apricot and cookies.
Med body, satisfying, well rounded and yummy. Cool.

Ótima Tripel belga. Cor amarelo-palha com ótima formação de espuma e aroma remetendo frutas amarelas e especiarias, na boca corpo médio, com notas de fermento belga, pêssegos e damasco, com álcool bem inserido. Final longo e aquecedor. Ótima breja!

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Light amber colour, malty aroma with hint of whisky. Malty and bitter to taste, not unpleasant but plenty of carbonation - too much for my palate. Nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber pour, small beige head. Sweat malty aroma, subtle cherry,and dark fruits. Light hoppimg, touches of wood abd oak. Not bad, but not great, a tad too sweet.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear amber with glints of garnet deep in its depths. A voluminous khaki head slowly fades in the shape of a donut. Lace sticks in bunches on the sides of the glass. Swirls clumpy.
Toffee followed by plums, pears, and concord grapes. Oak in the back with vanilla and essence of raw oak. Slightly buttery on top. Cut green grass. Crisp Fall leaves. Intriguing and off-putting at the same time.
My first quaff reveals a hard bite of burnt wood and pepper in the front. A dry finish of apple cores, plum and grape skins. Rough. Burnt acrid caramel and Werthers Original. Hard minerals along the edges.
There was just something wrong with this beer from Greene King. Iíve had many an Old Speckled Hen which, while nothing spectacular, is a solid English Ale. Maybe the clear bottle allowed some skunking, or maybe it was supposed to taste this way. All I know is I didnít finish mine.

Poured from a bottle this is a clear amber ale with a slight head. The aroma is slight citrus scent. The taste tells more with a strong flavor of raisins that lingers bitter on the palate

From a 5 cl bottle shared in Avon NC. Pours a clear amber with an off white head. Malty nose. Flavors of light butterscotch and raisins. Medium mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Slightly sweet, slightly bitter finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Caramel and a bit of burnt sweetness. Clear amber with a beige head. Sweet caramel, oaky and a bit sour. Bitterness up front and a bit harsh. Overall not my favorite of the series. A bit rough around the edges.

Bottle. This is nice big ale which bridges complexity and balance very well.
