Flat viscous black. Medicine and sweet waterburys compound tastes. Light for the amount of alcohol. Not my thing reallt, but appreciate the style.

Bottle at home. Pours cola colored with puffy head. Nose is dark fruits and malt. Tastes of crystal malt, prunes, sherry, cola, and toffee. Smooth palate only lightly carbonated. Drying finish. Pretty tasty.

AgentAle (627) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
Rich malt aroma with sweet chocolate notes. Taste is a rich maltiness with a good balance of hops. Some mocha and vanilla notes. Bitter snap at end but finishes smoothly. Body is a dark amber with a creamy head thst retains moderate l6.

Onslow (1149) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2014
Pour from an 11.5 oz bottle. Aroma of toffee, sweet malts, a little alcohol. Taste is sweet malts, molasses, lingering sweet in the finish though some hops step forward. Average palate. Nice.

Cunningham (4426) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 4, 2014
Deep amber colour with a tan head. Rich sweet toffe aroma with some fruity notes. Also very dominating sweet and fruity flavour. But not massive. Quite balanced. Medium to full body and an average to soft carbonation. A little bitt higher carbonation would have helped.
[Bottle at brewery in Stockport. England]

ibrubeer (88) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle. Nice "British" aroma and flavor. Aroma/flavor of raisin, and maybe some dark sugar. Easy drinking, smooth, low carbonation. Delicious!

A lot happening on the palate, no obvious "hot" flavour. Slight Chocolate aroma. Very good beer!
