JonMoore (1809) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2006
Bottle. Amber coloured with a slim off-white head. No sign of sediment. Aroma of vanilla and caramel with some chocolate notes. Flavours are malty and sweetish; some butterscotch and a nice hoppy finish. Medium to full bodied, very drinkable - I can’t leave it alone! Very good strong ale (strong ale is what it says on the label).

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2005
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from Waitrose. Yum. This is really quite good. Butterscotch and sticky toffee with a hint of vanilla and then some hops in the nose. Very brown coloured body with just a wisp of an off white head which leaves a little lacing. Gentle and sweet malts with some caramel and a very pleasant hoppy finish with just a lick of alchohol and gradually growing sweeter as it lingers. Very nice indeed. The more I drink of this the better it gets. Had to get this rate in quick as this stuff is a sinker. Very pleasantly surprised.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2005
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Not obviously bottle conditioned, I couldn’t see sediment, but no obvious pasteurisation notes either. Dark amberwith dissipating head. Aroma of caramel, orangey hop, liquorice. Good body, complex finish with hop and liquopricy, choclatey malt.
