Theydon_Bois (18708) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle at the Sussex Arms, Twickenhamd Green - Jan 12. Poured to a mahogany brown colour, red tinges when held to the light and a small white/beige head. A malty aroma greets the nose along with caramel and light hopping. In the taste, malts, a little dried fruit, caramel/toffee and a little warming alcohol especially in the finish. Mouthfeel is of a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and fairly drinkable and smooth.

harrisoni (18028) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle at The Rake. Not a great aroma. But its a decent sub ESB malty beer. Better in mouth and finish than on aroma. Tad oxidised on aroma. Fine.

Clear deep ruby color, good creamy beige head. Light citrus, caramel and berries in the nose. Medium-bodied. Licorice, malts, light hoppyness. Very much like an English ESB-style brew. Balanced but a bit bland.

Oakes (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Draught, 2012. Murky amber colour. Sweet with a figgy character. Too sweet and the phenols are too strong. Still not into this one.

Bottle, Brewery Creek, 2008
Gold-tinged amber-brown colour. Its a really nice colour, actually. Weak head. Toasty, earthy nose with some brown sugar and tobaccoey hop notes. Heavily toasty palate with caramel & cheesy oxidized hop accents. Sweetish finish. Rather boring.

bhensonb (14891) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours ruddy copper with a decent foamy beige/tan head. Deep roast malt aroma. Medium plus body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is mostly malt with something like herby bitter. Heavy in taste, if not in alcohol. Not at all sweet. Different sort of stuff.

Ferris (14384) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle - Caramel and roasted malts with a bit of alcohol burn. Dark clear copper with a brown head. Malty with a bit of burnt orange and spice. OK, but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tmoney99 (14199) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2006
Bottle from River Bend. Clear brown color with a large rocky off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Good caramel tawny port aroma. Medium body with light syrupy texture. Full heavy sweet flavor with a sweet spicy finish of moderate duration. Very enjoyable brew.
