On tap at Northampton Brewery on 19 April 2010. Noted at 8.2% - quite a step up, if correct, from the ABV we have listed on RateBeer. Dark red colour. Just a thin collar of foam. Rich and smoky. Full and fruity. Raisins / stewed prunes evident. Developing chewy malt. Not too sweet. Not devoid of hops either. Very tasty.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear red hued orange with a thin soda bubble looking white-beige head. Toast and smoky malt on the nose over a bit of sweet caramel and vanilla. Medium bodied, light malt, a bit sweet. Finishes up with some tingly sweetness and more malt and almost some marshmallow.

dark brown pour with expected sweet malts in aroma. taste characterized by sweetness and alcohol. what i didn’t expect was a note of coffee in the taste... which worked for me. of the six beers i sampled at northampton brewpub, this was my favorite.

Tap at the brewpub. Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is very malty and sweet. Toasty UK malts with some light earthy herbal character as well. Fairly sweet and toasty. Soft chewy palate, lightly treacly with a bit of molasses. Quite a nice brew. Lingering toasty sweetness.

Draught: This one pored a deep, rich brown. There was a bit of a tan head and lacing to go along with it. The aroma had a slight peat and smokiness to it. The taste had a good roasted barley taste, which also had hints of the peat and smokiness. There was also a slight sweetness to the taste.
