Erasmus_ro (1188) - Alabama, USA - JAN 26, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2014 Cask @ Gallows Bird RAF 2013. Pours dark orange amber. Aroma is caramel, light marzipan, sweet malts. Taste is quite sweet again with caramel malts dominating. Some pineish hops trying to make an appearance. Full palate. Ridgeway doesn’t really do these strong ones well.

guzgorog (169) - FRANCE - FEB 12, 2014
Bière rousse, pas de mousse. Nez de malt légèremetn grillé, caramel, épices, alcool. En bouche, compléteement plate, le corps est liquoreux, le malt domine, un peu de biscuit, caramel, l’alcool est trop présent. Franchement pas top ...

harrisoni (12651) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle from Terre de Boissons calais. Clear light brown beer lasting beige head. Sticky sweet malt aroma. Some obvious alcohol in the mouth. Some toast. Fruity. Orange peel. It’s pretty decent. Not hot on the finish just a little sting. I would recommend it.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle shared at JF’s, cheers James, 17/08/13. Lightly hazed amber with a thin white head that dissipates edgeward. Nose is Caramelised sugars, dark pitted fruit, toffee. Taste comprises toffee, sugars, light alcohol, dark fruits, dates, prunes. Medium bodied with bite, moderate carbonation. Drinkable affair but not much depth for a 10% number, however the booze is well integrated.
