lebermilz (75) - GERMANY - FEB 24, 2015
creamy off-white head, dark brown. Aroma: Mokka, brioche, dried fruits.. Mouth: semi-sweet, full bodied, soft carbonation. Although it is quite high in alcohol, you don’t feel it. Could be good with a beef stew.

spacecube (1223) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
330 ml bottle, pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is rich with malts, dates, cherry notes, choc and nut, nice balance of flavour with a light bitter finish. Medium body, creamy texture with soft but lasting carbonation.

rami_pl (346) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 17, 2015
Butelka, pod mosteczkiem, warka do marca 2016. NIewysoka, ale i niebrzydka piana, nieco brudzaca szklo i zostajaca do konca cienka warstwa. Kolor brazowo-rubinowy, bardzo ciemny, w ciemnym pomieszczeniu wygladajacy na czarny. Aromaty palone, owocowe (estrowe - ciemne owoce - wisnie, sliwki, suszone figi), winne, karmelowe, toffi, - mile i intensywne. troszke chleba. Po ogrzaniu troche tez czuc alkohol, w wersji likierowej, nieprzeszkadzajacy. Rowniez po ogrzaniu mniej palonosci a wiecej owocowosci. Smak dosc analogiczny do powyzszych, czuc i slodycz i kwaskowosc. Sa tez posmaki slodowe, orzechowe, goryczki niemal nie ma. Posmaki niebzyt dlugie moze, ale bardzo mile - winno-owocowe. Niskie wysycenie, nie za duzo ciala, gladkie i nieco lepkie. Znow w smaku nieco alkoholu, ale wkomponowane w pozostale smaki - niejako zastepuje niemal nieobecna goryczke, zarazem bedac milym w odbiorze, ala sherry. Calosc w pierwszej chwili troche skojarzenie daje jakby porter z duza dawka estrowych owocow, niemniej szybko zanika palonosc. bardzo dobre piwo. zwlaszcza na zime. rozgrzewajace. kusi nastepnym razem sprobowanie Old Tom w wersji czekoladowej.

hohops (481) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Appearance is very dark ruby brown, almost black, opaque, an off-White beige head which hangs around. Aroma- rich fruit cake, vinous, port, caramel, marmalade, raisin, chocolate. Smells very nice. Taste- fairly boozy, nutty, caramel, burnt treacle, peppery, slightly spicy, marmalade, orange peel, some dark fruit, raisin. Quite slick and a bit clingy in the mouth, with a slightly port wine, bittersweet finish. Very good stuff.

lello4ever (213) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
Splendida. Mi ha colpito molto questa ale inglese, sin dal primo sorso. Ha un colore marrone scuro, con una buona schiuma beige compatta. All’olfatto č complessa, speziata e dall’odore intenso di frutta. Al gusto rivela la sua natura di ale per i malti tostati, cui si uniscono spezie e frutta a dare un sapore dolce, pieno e rotondo. Il dolce č accompagnato anche da una piccola nota di caffč. L’alcool c’č ed č ben presente, con 8.5% di certo non passa inosservata tra un sorso e l’altro. Raccomandatissima.

MrBlueSky93 (409) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle from Tesco. Pours dark brown with a single finger beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate. Taste of initial sweetness from chocolate, roasted malts following this with some bitterness. A little sour too. Nice.

Belzebuh (4) - SPAIN - FEB 5, 2015 does not count
Color marrón rojizo. Baja espuma beige que acaba desapareciéndo. Aromas a maltas tostadas, cacao, alcohol, jerez y frutas oscuras. En boca es dulce, dejándo paso a las maltas tostadas. Finish untuoso algo dulce y alcohólico. Buena cerveza para degustarla con calma.
