Bottled. A deep red beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of caramel and nuts. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of oxidation and nuts, leading to a dry and slightly oxidized finish. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

No bitterness. Just a porty malty cream with a light toffee note. Very tasty without being overpowering.

Thanks to Phil l for bringing this bottle to the Bricklayers Arms Yorkshire Fest 09. Lovely red fruits, gorgeous, not much carbonation, but lovely strawberry jam. It is very drinkable and quite glorious. Bit sour. Lovely red soft fruits.

Bottle, thx to fonefan. A clear, copper-colored beer, almost flat, except for some beige cask-like bubbles. Lovely malty nose, with beef-stock, caramel and roasted malt. Dried fruits too. Some alcohol warmth in the mouth, fullbodied, with tastes of caramel, malt and dried fruits. The finish is of the lasting kind, with caramel and beefstock. A quite lovely old ale, but it would benefit from a more pronounced and tasteful flavor. (080823)
