COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Occasional;
It’s based on a 1938 recipe from the old Westerham brewery for an audit ale, based on the strong ales served at Oxbridge colleges on the day students took final oral exams and grades were announced.

Caramel, floral, earthy, alcohol. Yes, definitely tasted of alcohol! Very drinkable, even the mushroomy back-flavour complemented the other nuances. Distinctly sweet.

thmsboyd (19) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle dated 08.15. Toasted malt and cheese and onion aromas, slighty butyric. Chestnut brown body with a moderate, loose white head. Medium bitterness with a touch of sweetness and sourness. Nuttiness. Soft carbonation and dry texture. Lasting bitter-sweet finish. Full body, Very well-balanced and drinkable strong ale. Would pair well with strong-flavoured foods like a mature cheese

mile (2960) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle. Amber, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light dark fruits - berry fruitiness, light hoppyness and faint alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light dark fruitswith light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light caramel and light fruitiness, light hoppyness, light - some alcohol. Bit one-dimensional. Could use more body and bitterness to balance alcohol and caramel sweetness.

beer0clock (121) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Tastes like it says with raisins and molasses but also has weird taste a bit like a metallic taste that puts you off drinking it again after half of it, bottle at bottle shop.

Malty taste, apricot, caramel, dried fruit, marzipan, light roast, hops. Quite rich, with some Barley Wine-like notes. (2014-05-14)

See: Orange brown. No discernible head just a slight white foam on top. Smell: Raisins and molasses. Taste: Dried dark fruits, raisins. Sweet at the front, bitter at the end but then the sweetness of the fruit taste comes through again at the end. Pallet: Medium carbonation. Long finish. Very interesting ale with a rich flavour. Would probably only drink one per session because of the vivid flavour but very enjoyable.
