3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark brown color with a dense little head. The aroma displays lightly roasty maltiness with some dark fruity notes - bread, nuts, some raisin appear. Taste is light to medium sweet, mostly malty but also slightly bitter in the finish. Plum and caramel combine initially with maltier notes featuring later. The palate is medium bodied, the carbonation soft. Very smooth, balanced and tasty ale that is suitable for various situations.

Rated from memory. Dark red copper with low-medium head. Aroma complex and inviting with notes of dried fruit, dark bread and herbs. Taste is full and bittersweet with a nice malt body. Notes of dried fruit, grass and spice. Really nice for the darker months.

Bottle from a Tesco in Portsmouth. Decent enough ale that didn’t stand out too much, but was enjoyable

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lovely English Dark Ale, dark fruit aromas with a nice vinuos aftertaste. Malt and hops are perfectly balanced making this a ckassic example of this style.
Darkest of reds in colour. Perfect for the long winter hours.

Keg (William K Kurvi, Tallinn)
Dark, but flat. Smells almost mushroomy, sweet ams malty, a bit mashy, some apple. Taste similar. Palate flat. Apple says this is way tired. An insult to a great beer. Candifloss pink sweetness. Nah. Should have a bottle to fix this poor rating.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear brown color, topped with a fine tan head and a very decent lacing. Slightly fruity aroma, quite lots of coffee and roasted notes. Taste starts sweet, fruity, folllowed by coffee again and a little bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad, although quite strong coffee notes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2014 0,5 l bottle from the English Shop in Bonn. Clear, dark, reddish brown with thick, creamy, diminishing, tan head. Nice aroma of dark fruits like prunes, dark cherries and raisins. Slightly vinous. Taste is slightly sweet and follows the aroma. Short medium bitter finish. Medium to full body, flat carbonation. Overall a really pleasant beer that lacks a bit of excitement. Still very good!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Deep dark reddish brown colour, thin tan head. Sweetish aroma of dark fruits and toasted malt, notes of wood. The flavour is sweetish malty, with dark fruits, caramel and toasted & nutty notes. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark brown looks with some red here and there. Beige head and nice lacing. Aroma has roasted malts, wood, dried fruits and red berries. Taste has wood, dried fruits, some banana in the after taste. A little mild taste in my opinion. Slightly thin body with medium-to-low carbonation. Expected a little more from this.
