3.7
DavyK (132) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - JUN 19, 2017
Roasted, almost burnt malt in aroma. Minimal carbonation. Lively herbaceous and bitter stuff going on against the malt notes. Great example of the style.

rodsquad (221) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JUN 10, 2017
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. pours clear ruby brown with thin white head. Aromas strong with toffee front then blackcurrant jam and cola cubes. Taste is sweet, light, malty fruit loaf with warm spice and orange peel. It has a soft body and light sparkle. This is a beautifully warm, light, spicy, fruity ale. A traditional ale in the spirit of a fruit cake.

From old tasting notes. Deep orange brown color topped by a rocky beige head. Rich caramel malt aroma. Rich bittersweet roasted malt flavor hints at molasses and apple cider. Long bitter aftertaste.

3.3
MoritzF (9851) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2016
(bottle) Clear, ruby brown colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Mildly nutty and slightly bready malty aroma with notes of caramel and discreetly fruity accents. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Slightly toasted malty base with caramel, nutty hints and slightly candied fruity notes, getting a tad vinous towards the sweet and cautious bitter finish, alongside with a whiff of earthy hops. Not bad. 06.II.16
