COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

TheGB (510) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Poured a rich reddish copper with a thin pale head. Striking malty aroma, sweet with cherry, raisin and a nutty note. Lively on the tongue with a medium sweetness balanced at the end by moderate bitterness. Flavors are not very distinct but it is otherwise an interesting brew.

@ Porterhouse, Dublin: Clear dark amber, little long lasting head, notes of caramalt, yeast and dried fruit, a little hops develops in mouth, sweet taste with long bitter finish.

Jamedra (479) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 8, 2013
Láhev 330 ml. Po nalití lehké aroma kávy, karamele a praženého sladu, pěna je nízká krémové barvy s jemnými bublinkami. Pivo samotné je čiré měděné barvy vcelku příjemné na pohled. Po ochutnání je cítit velmi dominantní hořkost která přehlušuje ostatní chutě piva a v ústech se udržuje poměrně dlouho. Pitelnost dle mého není příliš vysoká kvůli opravdu silné hořkosti.

HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2007
Pretty strone this, but quite palatable really. Fairly sweet and malty, but enough hops to make it interesting. Quite nice.

mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Pours a deep amber color with a thin, foamy tan head. The aroma is hoppy with a hint of caramel. The body is dry and the finish is bitter. The flavor has a mildly sweet undertone.

Sizzler80 (459) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 3, 2012
Dark ruby red with a good off-white head and lace. Aroma: hops, malt, yeast, oak. Taste: initial sweetness precedes a strong bitterness. Hops, malt, oak, currants. Nice bit of warmth from the alcohol and hint of cognac.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Ar: Very grainy, with some pear esters - a bit of mossy hops. Ap: Clear copper - medium-small light tan head with good retention and a solid lacing. T: Lightly sweet malt up front - toasty with a pronounced and firm bitterness, hop flavor is moss and black licorice - finish has some pear, peach, and a touch of orange, and bitterness lingers. P: Medium body with medium carbonation - dry finish. O: Good brew - deep malt and ester profile, but hops really cut through and pronounce themselves.

satanda (428) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 28, 2013
Polotmavé hodně silné pivo, chuťově o něco míň výrazné než třeba belgické fláky. Ale šlo to, k večerní přípravě prezentace ideální. Lahváč z pivoňky.
