Half liter bottle (compliments of Santa aka jordanhumbert) - pours clear dark amber with ivory head and decent lacing. Nose is brown sugar, dark fruit, roasted malts and caramel. Flavor adds floral/herbal hops. Maltiness makes an appearance once the beer warms. Well balanced with medium sweetness and bitterness. Sticky mouthfeel. Alcohol aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2013 One very good beer, one of my first english ale ever drink (Jacobite ale), dark colour with tan head, charachteristic aroma, bitter and dry taste, with good coffee and dark chocolate notes in the long final, very soft carbonation. I like this beer style!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
REstrained but rich, deep brown, and earthy with hints of wood caramel woven in together into a seemless whole. Neither extreme or wimpy this has perfect balance and jusy caresses the mouth.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours brownish black with little head and some lacing. Nice malty aromas, chocolate, nuts, and the smell of baking bread. Bready notes in the mouth too, together with licorice, chocolate and a very faint smokiness. Little evidence of hops, but nicely balanced. Very enjoyable, actually went back and gave this a higher overall because it went down sooooo easy.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A really dark coffee colour with one finger head which leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is toffee, chocolate, dark fruits, and hints of coffee and alcohol. Taste is much the same as the nose. Full bodied and creamy mouthfeel. I really enjoyed this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Brown, dark mahogany. Nose has sweet malts, raisins, plums. At this point Iím wondering whether this will be another undrinkable alcohol syrup. Some oak also. Body is medium. A bit yeasty. Dry even, and q bit bitter. Doesnít feel syrupy or repulsive. Rather well balanced. Brown malts, raisin, a bit of port and yeast. Quite nicely balanced strong ale.
