Sabor forte e marcante, ótima cerveja. Feita apenas em noites de lua cheia (pelo menos de acordo com o rótulo...)

@ Basunen: ganska medioker doft men smaken är inte den värsta. Lite banan och citrus. Ganska frisk men lite medioker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2012-07-21. Crisp dark amber, small beige head. 3+ Flavour is sweet and malty, caramel malt, mild earth accents below. English malt character overall, very light toasty malt touches. Mild aroma, sweetly malty, mild fruity character over light toasty caramel malt. 6+ Average plus bodied palate is smooth and pretty well suited to the beer. Alcohol is not at all noticeable while chilled. Simple, enjoyable, it grows on me. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

A little bitter taste, not much smell, but not so special beer. Seems like the brewery just thrown together something quickly. Not perhaps quite bad but not quite good either. Do not like this beer. Mediocre, I think this beer is.

Bottle- a very good dark and malty beer, with a good hop finish. A very moreish beer.

I love when regular beers appear in strong versions (Old Crafty Hen, Abbott Reserve etc) and this is no different. Decent malt backbone, and a hearty alcholic taste. Defniitely one to warm the cockles on a cold winter’s evening.

Dark English Ale, special reserve & brewed under a full moon. This ale goes down far smoother than Hobgoblin.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Was thrilled to see this beer at Grinders (Shoreline, WA) - paired wonderfully with their Meatball/Sausage Sandwich. Wonderful rich malty tones, but not heavy.

brown with caramel colorings - aroma of malt, hops and molasses - overly sweet (it’s almost as if they melted a caramel into each bottle!) with lots of malt and alcohol and slight brown sugar - This beer could definitely use some more hops to balance the sickly sweet malt! I think I paid $6 for this bottle and would easily rather have almost any $2 bottle in it’s place.

Rich brown with a white laced head. Syrupy texture with as bitter aftertaste of yeast, hops and bitter fruit.
