UPDATED: MAR 26, 2004 Dark brown in colour. Aroma of cherries, malt, slight roast. Flavour was of slight roast, with some caramel, slightly sweet, full bodied. Finishes with a medium bitterness, slightly dry.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear ruby amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of tea leaves, malt and chocolate. Taste is malty with hints of nuts, malts, tea and chocolate. Interesting.

I’m not the biggest fan of English Strongs, but this one is quite good...and a fair representative of the style, I think. Malts are a bit sweet.

Dark, from a bottle, not a smooth taste, the taste seems a little all over the place. I wouldnt buy this beer again

341 ml bottle. pours dark brown (actually very red when held against light) with no head and minimal carbonation. aromas and malty, grainy and nutty. flavours are straight forward with dark malts and nuttiness. no complexity holds this back from being outstanding but this is a damn good ale thats heart warmingly drinkable.

bottle. deep, dark copper colour. aroma of raisins, and lots of malts. Has a hoppy and sweet flavour with moderate complexity. Alcohol appears towards the end but it’s a nice touch...fully bodied.

This one’s good. I’ve had ten now, though, and I’ll have to save the last two for a more objective review at a later date.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAY 21, 2001
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2004 Nice strong English style ale. Close to a brown ale, mostly malt/chocolatey, nice deep fruitiness. Slightly dry finish. Might also work as a winter warmer.

piscator34 (2152) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 3, 2005
Dark brown body with a small but a lasting head. Nice malty brown bread aromas. The flavors are mainly caramel and bready malts, along with a subtle fruity note. Medium bodied, whcih is surprising considering the aroma and flavor profile (expected heavier). A touch of alcohol on the finish. Not the most complicated or subtle beer out there, but a solid performer indeed. Thanks radiomgb!
