3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle thanks to BavarianPurity! It pours a dark amber color with a small tan head. The aroma is straight brown sugar and chocolate malt. The flavor is very sweet with a big maple syrup, brown sugar, molasses thing going on, yet it remains pretty light bodied. It has a nice bitter, toasty finish. This is a pretty nice beer, but a little too sweet and syrupy. (in the flavor not the body)

Very sweet, even for the style - very smooth, though - loads of toffee, as well as caramelized sugars, along with a faint buttery diacetyl flavor around the edges - some roasted nuts, dark fruit, and a hint of tartness on the end - not too bad, just way sweet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from 12-oz bottle, shared by moelikebeer. Pours a semi-clear dark amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma of toasted, powdered dark malt, some toffee, iced tea and some grassy hops. Taste is medium bodied, toasted dark malt, some dry tea, tobacco, and a hint of licorice. Finish is semi-dry, a little powdered tobacco/toffee aftertaste that slowly disappears. Alcohol is well hidden

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
AFter an Arizona trip filled with pale ales and IPAs and the standard brewery beers, this English Strong is quite a palate-attacking change. A sweet toffee and butterscotch aroma, with a brown color. This is sweet and toffee sticky and a tad lactic/milky. An okay beer, but perhaps would score higher if I hadn’t had so many hops already in my system. Quite a bit of butterscotch though. But there’s also some hops at the w2ay end of this. Really hard to get a handle on this beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown caramel color, light head and lacing. Nose is again, vegetal with some alcohol and fruity notes showing themselves. The flavor is fairly woody with some dry malts and splinters. Finishes with a light sherry note along with some maple and plum notes. Zug.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of light roasted and chocolate and caramel malts plus light hops and light dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad just mediocre.

Thanks gunhaver for the share. Pours amber with an off-white head. Nose is brown sugar, plums, lots of malt, currants, and some noticeable hops. Flavor is sweet malt, currant, brown sugar, wood, vanilla, hops, and again, plum goodness. Generally nice beer.

Aroma is mainly hoppy and woody, not strong but inviting. It pours a clear umber with a thick, fine-bubbled wheat head. Malty flavor has notes of hops, caramel and cloves. Texture has decent body and fizz. In the mood for some monkeyshines? Here dey iz!
