RATINGS: 25   MEAN: 3.31/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.26/5   SEASONAL: Spring   ABV: -
Strong-style English Ale is a favorite of those who love intense beer flavors. Malty and hoppy with a hint of fruitiness, the elevated alcohol content is also noticeable in the flavor profile.

CaptBier (323) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 1, 2008

KDorgan12 (169) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Draft-Memphis. Sweet Hops fill the nose and balance well with a malty, viscous brew. This was surprizingly refreshing for a beer of this gravity. THANK YOU HOPS!

SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JAN 26, 2008

allfreej (556) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 24, 2007
On tap at Boscos, Little Rock, Arkansas. Poured dark brown, with a nice tan head. Malty nose and flavor. Didnt strike me as particularly strong, but the flavor was OK. I had a sample glass and opted to go for anopther pint of their Hopgod IPA instead.

Aurelius (5214) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2007
This is fundamentally an attempt at a 5% ABV barleywine. PA aroma, someplace between England and America, suggests an upstate NY hopping combo. Darkish brown-red, small spongy camel-colored head. Sweet, citrusy, woody, lightly astringent. Medium heavy body, wood-bitter finish with light sulphur. Very light diacetyl. Solid.

Kevin (2195) - Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Tap. Ruby hued brown body with a thin gray brown head. Sweet brown sugar and plum nose with a bit of used up charcoal. A surprising balance of bitter to sweet here that I like. Herbal grass and a light citrus illuminate the caramel flavor. A nice English buttery flavor with the moist raisin taste. Chalky finish with a grape taste. A light chocolate permeates all aspects of this. A bit of chocolate orange here. An easy sipper Ap-4 ar-7 tast-7 pal-3 ov-15

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2006
(On tap) Memphis. Clear, reddish brown with an off-white head. Malty, lightly caramelish nose. Medium-bodied, lightly sweet with some sherry notes and lovely, roasted malt. And everything is perfectly balanced by some rather solid bittering hops. 280306
