UPDATED: JAN 13, 2013 Bottle - 750mL crowned. Pours copper with a short, fizzy beige head. Aroma is spicy and slightly herbal with sweet malt, dried fruit and caramel. Taste is rather sweet with chewy malt, caramel, spice (nutmeg and maybe light cinnamon), dark fruit, and faint herbal notes. Body is medium with a soft carbonation and a slick mouthfeel. Ends with more sweet malt, caramel, dark fruit notes, light spice, cookie and grassy/herbal notes. Not bad but not quite worth $30. GandGKevin (934) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Not bad, pretty tasty. Nutty fruity nose, light fruity caramel on the palate. Overall pretty good, but expensive. Travlr (24784) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2010

Hazy brown color.light caramel and spice aroma. Sweet beer, caramel flavor, with some chocolate. The spices appear, gently, mostly in the end. Pleasant.
Bottled. An unclear brown beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has strong notes of spices among them cloves, as well as medium notes of smoke and vinegar - messy impression. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, alcohol, and spices - among them cloves. The alcohol burns lightly on the palate. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle thanks hugely to Nate as part of the Imperial Geezer Tasting.cgarvieuk (24499) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2010
Hazy orange colour with a very good beige head. Raisins and caramel, lots of fruit and some excellent malt, although it’s just a little on the pukey side. Bags of spice but not overdone at all. Good balance considering the complexity. Surprisingly easy drinking. Good stuff.
