Bottle. Dark brown color with ruby hues, beige head. Aroma of roasty berries. Taste has dark roast, fruity coffee. Tasty. JoeMcPhee (10673) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Deep beer pour. Toasty malt aroma with some light treacle and stone fruit. A bit of rich molasses and a soft touch of cocoa as well as some chewy malts. Really earthy and chewy with a bit of fruit on the back. Warming finish and a bit of hoppiness. Really delicious. Like a Christmas pudding.

Cask @ Trades Club, Hebden Bridge. Clear dark brown in colour with a creamy head. Has a lovely smoothness in texture and palate with sweet grainy malts dominant. Chocolate is is prominent in both aroma and taste, but much more stated in its nose. gegwilson (4607) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014

Cask at The Haymarket. Pours clear amber with a thin white head. Aromas of orange and toffee malt, light biscuit. Quite a sweet taste, as you’d expect, and whilst relatively rich compared to a bitter, is thinner than most barley wine’s I’ve tried. Nice beer though.
