Thanks to Seanyfo for this beer! copper in the glass, nose of dark fruit and caramel. The beer starts intense, caramel, roasted and slightly sweet. A bitter taste comes to the beer in the mainpart, nicely harmonising, brown sugar, caramel, molasses. The aftertaste gets more bitter, only slightly sweet now, warming alcohol, very nice balanced roasted, not too sweet.
--> a great brew! I like it! --> 13/10/12/12

0.5L bottle, long medium thick stable head with some lacing, classic copper colour, malty aroma with a strong spiciness ,some vanila and a herbal hint, flavour of bread and grapefruit with a strong dominating chocolate like bitterness and complimenting sweetness. medium bitter sour aftertaste, quite big bodied for the style. a little too sweet but still a very good beer.

At a tasting within "Icon Festival 2010" at the "beer from the myths" site in "Porter & Sons" restaurant, 0.5L bottle, pours dark reddish with a off-white head that dissipates quickly, slightly carbonated, sweet, alcoholic and caramel aroma, citrus taste, dry, flowing, initial taste is sweetish, bitter aftertaste, medium body, and overall a superb beer.

I donīt think Wychwood ever have failed in their brewery. The look of the bottle gets eleven points out of ten.

50cl bottle. Pours a dark red/brown liquid with almost no head. Nose : caramel and dough, some flower and nuts aromas. Raisins. Sip : Low to medium density with oily and a bit creamy texture. Carbonation is delicate. Sweet and quite fruity with a rich bitter hop ending. Tastes like US hops. Roasted malts adds well to the bitter aftertaste. Nice. Extra points for the full moon abracadabra ;}

Beautifully rich, strong ale with an air of prestige about it. Satisfying and mysterious, much like itís progenitor.

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 winterís evening.

Another winner from Wychwood! Though listed as a strong ale, this is actually very pleasant.
