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.

BelgiskOlklub (990) - Viby J, DENMARK - APR 17, 2012
Clear light brown body and a small dimishing rocky head. Aroma of fruit, alcohol, caramel, pine and spruce. The taste is medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium body, thin feel, oily feel, average carbonation, long finish, bitter. To heavy and not well integrated alcohol and a bitter long lasting finish.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with eggshell head that leaves a nice lace. Fairly rich, malty nose with fruit and bread. Rich on the palate as well with a little hop cutting through. Fairly weighty on the palate with a softly bitter finish.

amber ale, not much head. slightly sweet with a good hop content. hides the alcohol well.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2008
Draught @ The Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Amber/copper with an off white head, it’s hard to judge in the dim lighting. Good hoppage, slightly metallic but it’s ice cold so what do you expect. Eventually sweet bready malts emerge as it warms. Flavour sees a nice bitter lick on the back of the tongue with sweet malts rounding it off. I imagine there’s a little more depth to it if you have the patience but unfortunately that’s not my forte.

annunz123 (942) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Roast and nut in the aroma. More of the same in the flavor, with a lot of caramel and butterscotch as well. Ample carbonation gives a creamy mouthfeel. As someone who loves butterscotch and caramel, I think this is great.

Deu (912) - Nantes, FRANCE - JUL 27, 2012
330 ml bottle and on tap at the porterhouse central. Nice ale but nothing really impressive. I will try it again.

KUEric (904) - San Francisco, California, 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.
