Initial taste involves figs, eventually mellows out. Not too much "in your face"

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from B&M Stockton. Deep amber with a small cream head. Roasty notes with some caramel and a nice balance between bitter and sweet. Very pleasant, but not too much going on for a beer of this strength.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Copper colour with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel malts, some alcohol, mild toasted notes as well as a nice floral and fruity tone to it. Flavour is very similar, with the fuggles coming in really nicely. Also has a bunch of resiny and nutty notes in the flavour. One of the better old ales I’ve had.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Almost Belgian like dubble. Or barley wine. Bar the strength. Warming, slightly spiced aftertaste that develops. But not complex.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fairly sweet and malty. If DB had rated this 7 years ago he’d have given it 4.2. Consistency across the years Daniel. Good luck Leicester I guess.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a dark amber with a small off white head. Aroma of bitter caramel malt. Medium body, flavour of the aroma, a litte forest fruit and a lot of nuttyness. Very old school.
