Grieve’s 1803 Fat Ox Ale is a cloudy, raspberry brown ale with a bubbly light khaki head that thins a bit and stays put. It has a huge caramel aroma with a very roasted quality. Notes of coffee and chocolate are quite apparent. It’s medium bodied and smooth. The finish is quick and clean. It tastes like it smells, a touch sweet and not really bitter at all. There’s a lot of caramel with notes of coffee and chocolate. The tastes lingers for a while and at last, some bitterness comes out. I honestly didn’t expect such a tasty brew! This goes down with great ease. MacBoost (1898) - Victor, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2011
This is probably the best beer from Custom Brewcrafters to date. 22oz bomber, brand new release. Chocolate and coffee in the nose, pours a solid brown. Roasty, malty and yummy. I would drink this again. blipp (9278) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Draft. Pours brown with a beige head. The aroma has roasted malts, a light sweetness, and some coffee. The flavor has roasted malts and coffee, a light caramel sweetness, and some light floral hoppy notes. Nice. Ron (3961) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2015 2010 Autumn Festival of Ales. A Dark amber pour, with a average head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Also a roasted flavor with some coffee and chocolate notes. @nd time around I enjoyed more of the malts and upped the rating. RickTStiles (826) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2010
pours hazy, very dark amber, with a thin tan head and some lacing. Tasty malt aroma. Roasted chocolate malt flavor with some coffee notes. Mildly bitter finish.
