Rather nice this one pours well with a great aroma hints of marzipan and toffee with the alcohol coming through in the background if it tasted as good AS good as i t smelled would be a winner

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle; #294851 - Best before 1 Jan. 2016.
Pours red-orange with a very good head and ample lacing.
The aroma is quite nice: sweet and complex, with suggestions of fruits, honey, and a hint of toffee.
The flavor does not keep up, being impaired, in part, by some boozy notes. The high ABV also prevents the mouthfeel from being as smooth and soft as it might be.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours opaque, copper color, thin head. Complex aroma of caramel, dried fruits, lemon, biscuits which all blends into kind of Belgian barnyard notes. Taste is malty sweet, but not overwhelming, balanced with sour notes in aroma and slightly bitter finish. Quite complex for ale. You start thinking about Belgian triple, but it is still ale. Interesting brew.

Bottle from Asda. Benylin, rosehip malt. Sticky sweet. Sticky is the word of the night. This is OK. English Strong Ales are quite good most of the time, aren’t they?

Good, full, long and rich taste. Real pleasure if you take it with some sweet cheese.

500 mL bottle poured into a pint glass. Orange-red, opaque with a creamy head. Perfurmed sweet fruit aroma. Fresh and smooth if surprisingly lacking in body, but still quite refreshing. Not bad but I’d rather have their 7.2% triple.

Brown and clear with thin, lacy head. Sweet aroma with dried fruits, especially raisins. Flavour is also sweet with some banana esters and caramel. Interesting but too sweet.

Clear dark copper coloured with no head and little aroma to my cold filled nose. Full bodied malty hoppy flavour however more than makes up for it. Well balanced. Rich and complex yet doesn?t overwhelm the taste buds. Lovely.

16.1.2014. Tumman kuparin värinen. Tuoksussa hieman karamellia, mallasta. Suutuntuma hiilihappoinen eikä kovin tukeva, melko pehmeä. Maussa hieman karamellia ja mallasta, hieman kypsää hedelmää. Ihan kiva, mutta ei suuria tunteita.
