Copper brown, no head. Spicy, grainy aroma. Body is slightly watery, and the favor is bready, nutty, then a dusty, dry finish. This was from a brown bottle.

Dark pour with a light tan head. The one i had was from a bottle and slightly skunky. But, through that i found dark malts and toffee.
The finish is burnt malts. Good when not skunky.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours from the bottle a dark ruby with a large off white creamy head. The head is mostly lasting with fair lacing. The nose is flowers and perfume. The floral flavor is malty and sweet. The middle is a tad loose, and the finish is subtle. The medium creamy body is soft with an astringent feel to the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours from the bottle a transpicuous deep mahogany color with the head majestic in size, creamy in texture and a beauteous light tan in color, as it ever so slowly fades away a silky sheet of lace forms to cover the glass. Nose is sweet malt dominated, fresh and inviting to the senses; start is also malt rich and sweet with the top light to medium in feel. Finish is meek in its acidity with the hops delicate in their spiciness, very dry and slightly tart aftertaste, a good representative to the style.

I really like this Strong Ale. A nice copper-red color, but a short lasting head

Small offwhite head, mostly diminishing on a mahogony body. Aroma is moderately malty with carmel notes. Flavor is lightly sweet, lively carbonation,and noticable bitterness in the finish. fairly well balanced. Decent brew.

Copper-red with a small short-lasting head. Very light aroma, but hints of bitterness and caramel. Nutty and malty aroma with a nice amount of sweetness. Lasting aftertaste. Enjoyable and refreshing and not much more.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a medium ruby amber clear under a medium small lasting tan head. Slightly metallic woody, n stronger biscuit and light roasted malt aroma. Medium body. Chewy, lightly sweet golden syrup and caramel malt, and mild hop bitter flavoured start. Middle and finish lack oomph and character as it degenerates to a stalish bitter and weaker malts. Drinkable but not in the same league as the Fuller ales
