Pour is a dark caramel brown with a small tan head that is noisy and very temporary. A pleasant aroma of dark fruit and caramel. That aroma stays pleasant throughout the bottle. Flavor is rye, spicy, fruity, and caramel. Throw in some more spice and this could be a nice Fall or Winter seasonable. Still, it is a nice beer with a classic feel to it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Our Glass bottle with a bit of crumpet on the label. Not dated. Pours clear ruby with everlasting head (and great lacing down the side of the glass too). Smooth body with soft fizz. Caramel and raisin malt backbone. The hops hit the back of the throat to dry it out. As it warms, fruity esters really come through, but too warm and there’s sherry booziness to it. Still a really good British beer, but pricey here in the States.

Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours deep redish copper with a small, off-white film head. Soft fruity aroma, a little toffee and English liquorice. Medium carbonation, fine mouthefeel. Great taste. Lots of toffee, light liquorice, sweet chocolate. A long and lingering chocolate, hoppy and dry aftertaste. Really lovely.

500. Pours a crystal clear dark brown with a loose and sudsy tannish head. Sharply tart nose in a way that seems to come from out of nowhere; raw and overripe and strawberryish, almost kinda grand-cru-ish. Odd, but you could see why they might want to go this way. Figs and dry leaves as well. Medium body, not much character in the way of creaminess or anything. Figs, raisins, and a bit of strawberry on the mid-palate. Neutral finish.

Our Glass from the bottle at By the Bottle in Vancouver, WA--Poured a deep chestnut amber body with a medium whitish head. Nutty, sweet, hoppy, citrus nose. Malty, chalky, mildly tangy fruity flavors. Fullbodied and earthy in the finish. Very nice beer!
