12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Dark roasty malt. A little caramel, but mostly just malt.
Appearance: Dark, translucent rust body, sparse off-white head.
Taste: All roasty, semi-sweet malt, and a little bit of caramel again.
Palate: You don’t taste the 8.2% alcohol. At all. Short finish. Mild sweetness, mild bitterness.
Overall: Great beer. Watch out! It will creep up on you and mess you up. Drinks easy, nice and malty, but dangerous haha.

Bottle; poured a dark color with a big off white head. No notes on aroma. Flavor had some dark fruit, and a bit of sweetness and hop bitterness. A tad on the thin side for the abv.

It's what I would call an acquired taste; but once acquired nothing else will do.

On tap at Taco Mac. Nice looking pour - dark reddish brown with a creamy light tan head. Aroma is caramel apple, butterscotch, toasted malt and molassess. I liked the aroma better than the taste presented the toasted malt and caramel, but not a lot of complexity. There was a kind of metallic taste that kept creeping in and a bit more sourness than i prefer. Finishes dry with a lingering bitterness. Mouth feel was fairly thick despite only moderate carbonation. Interesting brew, glad I’d tried.

Pours a cola color with a sweet molasses aroma mixed with hops. Taste is the same with a caramel aftertaste. A little bitter after the swallow. The alcohol content comes through throughout the beer.

This beer has a definite English flavor with mild caramel. Slightly bitter with subdued malts. It is very drinkable.
