Only ever brewed under a full lunar moon, with crystal malts and sovereign hops for a rich, smooth sublimely satisfying taste of pure beer indulgence.

pure beer indulgence is right, bitch. this is what I’m talking about. it’s got the right stuff, baby. here we go, man. it’s what beer drinkers drink when were drinking beer. anything else, would be preposterous.

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

worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2011 Bottle, Dark Amber colour. Smell of Malt, Caramel, and flowery. Prickly and bitter feel. Rasin, Dark fruit, strong malt. sour aftertaste. The sour aftertaste seems to dissapear as I drink it and the dark fruit taste just becomes more powerful.

Bottle 500ml from Purvis. Great malty beer, with intense flavour. Aromas of caramel, biscuit, bread, cherries, pine, with hints of chocolate. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

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

A nice light copper color and light head. Very nice nutty aroma that is not too overpowering. Somewhat sweet caramelike taste at the front with a very mild only slightly bitter finish. Not over hopped. Sweeter than I normally like but this is very well balanced. Very nice beer for a cold evening. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

seritomi (308) - HUNGARY - DEC 7, 2012
Gyönyörű rubinszín, sárga sűrű habbal. Illata fantasztikusan gyümölcsös, főleg banán, és mazsola meg sok körte. Íze masszívan keserű, édeskés karamell aromával plusz kis csoki. Az egészet körbelengi egy savanykás gerinc. Nagyon szépen jön elő a 4 féle komló. Sajnos a Cascade kevés benne :). Finom, érdekes, összetett. Nagyon jó!

obguthr (4081) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Toffee, raisin, and dark roasted mal nose, good strength. Clear tea, medium yellow head. Light body. Rich toffee flavor. Vanilla and blackberries also present. Finishes with thyme and tea. Rich and complex with traditional english bitter style flavors. Higher alcohol content, which is well hidden so it still seems very sessionable. Full of personality and very enjoyable. Severely underrated.
