MichaelAwesome (3871) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2014
On tap at the Cowes Week. This one tells me it has 7 or 8 per cent in abv and seems to be inspired by syrup. Thick and heavy piwo with loads of plums, similar ripe fruits, bit of sugar, some malt and bananas. Easily drinkable but also really thick and full bodied. Respect.

On cask at the Cowes Week at the Cowes Marina. Pours out in a deep dark brown colour with low smooth head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of barley, malt and plums - nice! Taste of malt, barley, cake, prunes, raisins, plums, light chocolate and light torf. Wonderful smooth finish. Enjoyed it a lot.

Hidden_Pooch (286) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
Cask. Had this at the Great British Beer Festival. Probably my first and only old ale. Aroma was of black liquorice, fruits. It tasted very earthy with caramel, molasses, raisins and fruits. A very nice roasted malt flavour in there as well. Smooth and rich for everything going on with this beer.

Sjohnh (141) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
On tap in the Shakespeare, Coventry. Brown, going on purple, not much head. Enjoyable, complex ale with something herby complimenting the fruits, like a mulled wine.
