A dark brown coloured beer with a thick off white head. A strong roasted malt aroma, sweet liquorice, coffee and dark chocolate. Dry mouthfeel. Bittersweet taste, fresh roast coffee, dark chocolate and there is a smooth, creaminess in the end. The finish is long and bittersweet. Bottle from the Robin Hood’s Bay Post Office, bottled as Baytown Smuggler’s Haul.

Bottle. Distinctly malty, citrus sour, marmalady, dark fruit, hoppy strong bitter. Dry citrus malty finish. Good stuff. (2008)

Pours deep ruby with a decent tan head. Flavours of sweet sticky malt, treacle, licorice, dried fruit. I was pleasantly surprised by this, and really enjoyed it.

prawlie (1702) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle. Light treacle aroma. Malty with good body. A fair strong ale, but so-so in the scheme of things.

nazzty (1377) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2015
Reminds me very much of Saku Tume. Brown sugar and dried fruits combined in a rich malty base with a long finish with hints of licorice.

Bottle, on DFDS ferry from IJmuiden to Newcastle. Dark amber, not much head. Strong roasted malt aroma. Nutty finish.

martpez (373) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2015
Dark beer with a golden ting. A smooth drink despite its alcoholic content which you can clearly taste. A perfect example of a strong yorkshire ale and one of the best of its type. This particular one was poured from a bottle in york. It still retains a distinctive flavour which I keep coming back to.

EdKing (2667) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle from the Berkhamsted Beer Shop. Pours clear chestnut brown with a bubbly off white head, which disspates to nothing. Nose is nice and chocolatey, nutty, brown sugar, touch of dark dried fruit, prune, slight earthy hop. Taste is nutty, tangy ale, brown sugar, earthy English hop bitterness. Nice robust bitter with nutty, ale fruity flavour and some English hop earthiness. On the finish there’s dark chocolate.

Draught at Craft Beer Tap. Toffee, roasted malt, nuts, bit of raisin, fairly dry finish. Not really my thing, but I guess not too bad for an ESB.
