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!

Excalibur123 (115) - Soria, SPAIN - MAR 19, 2014
Color ámbar oscuro, buena cabeza de espuma perdurando una fina capa; aromas muy marcados a ciruelas pasas, licor, café y regaliz; en boca entrada potente con amargor marcado a malta tostada que torna a dulce apreciándose un tanto el alcohol; trago corto con largo y dulce pos gusto, buen cuerpo con carbónico ligero, una ale compleja y agradable que deja buenas sensaciones.

PapaVillum (395) - Valby, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2014
330 ml, flaske, 8,5 % ABV, købt i Kvickly Allerød, 17. marts 2014. Ibenholt-farvet Ale med et brunligt skær og 2 cm moccafarvet skumtop. Aroma af honning, appelsin, tørret frugt og portvin. Rigtig dejlig duft omend middelkraftig. Nogen kraftig smag af lakrids, peber og alkohol. Tør og bitter, næsten henad en porter. Man ventede næsten en sødere smag efter aromaen at dømme. Godt tilpasset kulsyreindhold, en snert under middel niveau. Øllet lægger sig nærmest mellem en belgisk stærk ale og en skotsk ale. "Gamle Tom" har vundet flere priser og smagen er også i en særlig klasse. Overrasker langsomt og mere og mere. Desuden afleveres øllet til nyderen med en fin beskrivelse af, hvad denne kan forvente i form af øje, næse og mund. Point for dette. Kan klart anbefale denne til alle ale-elskere og er klar på en gentagelse.

Zarkam (372) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 15, 2014
330ml from Tallinn, dark brown colour, small frothy mostly vanishing off-white head, little bit of lacing. Heavily malty aroma of molasses, plum and a bit of chocolate, moderate piney hops. Taste is initially balanced bittersweet with some booziness turning into a long moderately bitter finish with an alcoholic feel. Full body, oily texture, lively carbonation. An ale fairly rich in aroma and flavour, a bit too boozy perhaps.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkelbraunes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch fruchtig, leicht schokoladig, holzig, bitter. Geschmack röstmalzig, leicht getreidig, fruchtig.

Silvan7 (649) - Samarate, ITALY - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle @ home. Ramata carica tendente al marrone, limpida, schiuma beige fine poco persistente. Aroma di marzapane, burro, butterscotch, liquore e tostatura. Dolce abboccata, caramello e toffee, bilanciata da amarognolo piacevole, tostato e di frutta secca. Corpo pieno, poco carbonata, armonica.
