Bottle (50cl): Dark brown, clear, creamy tan head. Creamy roasted malt. Dense with green fruit. Coffee and ash. Curious with layers. Lots of fruit. Subtle hops. Moderately sweet with medium bitterness balance by the sweetness and weight. Fresh but not sour. Medium to full bodied. Good length. Creamy. Balanced. Nice beer.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2013 Bottle from the shop. Lovely a smooth old ale, full of flavour and still easy to drink. Malt fruit makes this like a grown mans Vimto. Very nice. Only a little thin.

Bottle from Tesco’s. Poured a clear dark brown with an orange hue and a bubbly off-white head. The aroma is big roasted malts and liqourice. The flavour is strong bitter with a roasted malt, coffee, liqourice palate. A timeless classic.

Boa Old ale britânica. Cor escura, com media formação de espuma, aroma de malte torrado. Na boca, bom corpo, com notas de malte torrado, seguido de frutado, lembrando uva passa e ameixas. Notas de caramelo e pão. Final longo, álcool bem inserido. Boa breja!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a darker brown to ruby color with a thinner, persistent, beige head of foam. Some splotchy lacing sticks to the sides of the glass. The aroma has doughy notes with honey, nuts, wood, and raisin. Some candied fruits develop as the beer begins to warm. Really dark, ripe fruits are present in the taste with an odd, skunky quality. As it warms, that skunk fades, but comes back to haunt in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark brown, virtually no head when poured from bottle and limited lacing. Aromas of cola, sweet malt and toffee that's been taken all the way before being burnt. Heavy malt and a touch of stewed fruit flavours with a slight sweetness, although there is a backbone of bitterness throughout that balances the beer. Very little carbonation and a richness in the palate. Peculiar alright. Complex and difficult to describe the flavours. Very enjoyable.
