UPDATED: OCT 1, 2006 From bottle. As I open the bottle a get a great fruity roasted coffee aroma. It has a very deep red appearance with a thin head. I was looking forward to tasting just from the aroma. The taste was sweet and smooth to drink but not what I expected. There was no distinguished taste for a dark ale, nothing stood out at all really except the slightly metallic aftertaste. Got used to it mind.

Dark brown with a frothy beige head. Malt aroma. Delicious sweet caramel taste reminiscent of toffee apples, and refreshing dry finish. Good beer.

Lovely colour, lots of fruit & malt. Very refreshing, great value! I loved it.

Bottle (from Tesco). It appears from the bottle that Daleside have a trademark on ’duff beer’ - fear of being sued by the Simpsons? Deep brown with light roast and fruit flavours. Slightly thin and sweet. Not great but worked well as an impromptu base for the onion gravy I was cooking at the time.

Slightly sour malt aroma with some honey notes. Pours ruby with a thick beige head. Flavour is a little thin and a little cloying, but it’s well balanced and pleasantly malty. Ok, but I wouldn’t go out of my way.

harrisoni (19535) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2006
500ml bottle from Tesco. Reddish/brown colour with beige head. Dry malt aroma. Juicy malt in mouth with some red burnt fruit. Shame its got a bit of deadness due to pasteurisation. But malt is good. Tasted to me a bit like Batemans XXXB.

I LOVED this beer. It reminds me of a porter because the malt is roasty tasting, it has a wonderful yellow head, fantastic to see. Incredible for the price like. Not a lot of hop taste but fruity and malty. I prefer a more hoppy beer but this hits the noodle and the pasta!

Fin (11059) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2006
Bottled (Can’t remember where i picked it up from) Ruby in colour as it says with nice fruity malty flavours enveloping your tastebuds, some roasted notes and a nice finish. Very good.

Unexpected,but this from the bottle was a tasty brew,a nice fruit and hoppy finish.

3.3
rauchbier (3949) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2003
Bottled. Deep chestnut red, good off white rocky head and low condition. Butterscotch, caramel, fruit and roast barley in the nose, slightly thin in the mouth with some caramel and roasted notes, and a dry long roasted finish.
