bdunhill (251) - Brussels, - OCT 24, 2012
With a nutty wine like aroma and an amber red color with a perfect white and frothy head this Strong English Ale has so many unique attributes that you can’t even define it. The taste is smooth to the tongue like a dry wine and yet has an abrupt palate that leaves you craving for more. It is simple but yet complementary to most any meal that you could imagine. Its an ale that the English should be proud of and make more of!

VRobertovich (34) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2015 A dark, dark ruby ale, with a beautiful creamy head. Indulgently thick, with aroma of caramel, chocolate, raisin, and dark fruit; balanced ever so finely with a spruce-like hop, matched equally in the taste. A truly beautiful pint, especially on a country pub on a winter’s night.

MichaelAwesome (5040) - 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.
