5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Dark like guiness / coke, with a light brown head that tastes of molasses / liquorice toffee. No nasty after tastes. Similar to Adnamís Broadside, but not as sickly. Has quite a kick to it at 8.1%, but comes in a small 330ml bottle

Bottle 330ml, from King&Godfree. Exceptional malt-driven flavours. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, alcohol, and butter. Taste is sweet and lightly bitter, with very long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Dark brown, with a frothy head.

Pours a nice brown head with little retention. Dark amber-brown in color. The aroma is filled with caramel, chocolate, nuts, toffee and some coffee. Nice bitterness. Nice full body. This is a great ale which I will have again.

Botlle from Ambrosetti, Berlin, Germany. Very dark with orange tint. Aroma of black berries, chocolate malt and some alcohol. Slightly sour, wine-like, fruity, spicey, very tasty. Lively mouthfeel, full body. The best ale Iíve tasted so far.

A first rate strong ale. Extra tenth point for their incredible website (one of the best beer websites ever), the legend of their cat, and their association with Iron Maiden.

Bottle. Pours black with thick head. Juicy aroma of raisins and roasted malt. Soft taste, very smooth and doesn't feel 8.5%. Big round palate, really well balanced.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautiful. Lovely deep ruby/brown colour. Rich, wine/fruit aroma doesn’t prepare you for the incredibly complex flavour rush. Plum, raisin, sun-dried tomatoes (yes, I know that sounds pretentious, but I’m being serious), pepper, roasted malt and a deep undercurrent of muscovado all resolve to a wonderful long, dry finish. This is a lovely beer to savour at the end of the day. Good night’s sleep guaranteed.

Wspaniałe piwo. Tradycyjne, mocne, harakterne i owocowo słodkawe w smaku. Wyczywałem w tej słodyczy jakby melasę, przyprawy. Finisz rozgrzewający i pieprzowy, z akcentami nut dobrego Porto. Kolor ciemno-rubinowo-czerwony ze średnią i kremową pianką. Polecam

I bought a few of these on a recent visit to London. One of the best beers Iíve ever had. The strong abv is masked very well by the excellent flavors.
