lokis333 (393) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - MAY 24, 2016
Clear copper color with small tan foam. aromas of fresh ground malt, dusty flour, grains and hay. Palate, full body, thick-ish texture and sweet sugary finish. Taste, sweet of malt, biscuits and grains (simple). Overall, sticky, sickly sweet, not esiest beer, nice but not for me.

Halfling_4132 (87) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2016
Appearance-light copper brown with disappearing golden foam, aromas- sweet malt, dates, and caramelised chestnuts (marrons Glacés). Palate- medium to full bodied, quite flat and quite sticky and oily in texture. Taste- malt, simple, dissapointing. Overall- great aromas but somewhat lacking in palate and flavour.

From the cask at Reading Beer Festival 2016. Complex, malty and clean, and tasty and well rounded beer. Otter have gone up in my estimation.

MrTipple (3586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Aroma: caramel, bread malts, grain. Appearance: clear amber, small, off-white, frothy head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: malts continue and remain very dominant, some unspecified fruitiness coming up, soft carbonation. Overall: very nice aroma, bit weak palate, but overall OK English "Strong" Ale. Bottle from Waitrose, Exter.

Chelmsford Summer Beer Fest. Cask. Light haze on this deep amber beer. Residual bubbly pale tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Mild fine carbonation. Rich malts but not heavy. Good semi sweet dark toffee. Ripe fruits blend well with the toffee. Traces of hard candy fruits and sweet esters. Toucb of floralness. Light finish. Dark toffee lingers on. Good stuff.

BlackHaddock (6336) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Half-pint at the 2014 Lincoln Beer Festival. Good looking dark, deep brown beer with a full white crown on top. Malty from the start, this is a fruity, wholesome brew that oozes flavour. The hops keep the maltiness in check to produce a lovely blend that is easy to drink, mildly bitter towards the finish.
