Our secret weapon. A fulsome, winsome strong ale. A deep copper tinged brew for the true aficionado, longer fermentation and thrice hopping bring about a complex soft bitterness allied to a malt induced sweetness with the characteristic oily Fuggles hop perfume. Not just for students. Once "stuffed" savour the flavour of a glass as a digestif... True "Aroma-therapy".

Grain: Pale Malt, Roast Barley, Black Malt, Flaked Barley.
Hops: Galena, Nugget, East Kent Goldings.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Draft in Dublin: It had an oragne-copper color with a caramel and floral/citrus (couldnt figure out which) scent. Not much head. Defintaly a caramel/toffee undertone to the taste, and an excellent mouthfeel.

Ungstrup (29663) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2005
[Draft at Porterhouse, London] A nutbrown beer with a fine creamy beige head. It almost has no aroma - what is there is sweet nutty. The flavor is nutty as well combined with notes of roasted bread and alcohol.

pivo (2577) - GERMANY - OCT 22, 2004
Sweet cara malt nose, brushed copper color, tight creamy head. Yeasty middle and a tight metallic toasted malt. Strong hop end that turns to roastedness. Kinda all over the board and the components don’t really come together. Nice flavors, but unsophisticated.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Coppery hue, sweet malt aroma. Sweet malt flavor, slightly dry. Not enough depth or complexity for the alcohol strength.

SilkTork (5250) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2004

thedm (4963) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 8, 2004
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 22. This draft brew from the Porterhouse brew pub in London poured a large sized head of foamy fine to large sized off-white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a good lacing and a uncarbonated transparent brown colored body. The aroma was malty with a mils caramel note and the mouth feel was tingly malty and mildly vinous with a nice smooth malty finish.

JoeMcPhee (8530) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2004
Soft amber colour, thin white head. Really fruity, cherry and blackberry with some caramel and toffeeish malt. Flavour is like a wee heavy, caramel malt, spicy, and hint of honey/molasses. Sweetness is well balanced however by some definite hop bitterness.
