On cask at Wetherspoons Real Ale Festival. Dark ruby/brown ale with a small tan head. Smells malty, roasty and toasty. Tastes of cocoa biscuits with a little bit of raisin and peach. Not much bitterness, more a sweetness to the finish. Pleasant. Jayb0 (1197) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2006
Wrongly guessed that this would be a belgian triple when I ordered it by name only. I was surprised but not unhappy with the beer. It is not really strong or "powerful". It is an easy drinking beer that doesn’t offend, smoothly delivering a decent, maybe overly sweet, malt character balanced reasonably by hop bitterness. ehhdayton (1188) - USA - JAN 17, 2007
Pours copperish brown with a tan head. The aroma has notes of toffee and roasted malts plus some fruit. The flavor is light with a slight sweetness and a finishes with a touch of roastedness. Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown with minmal head. Quite malty with a delicate choclate edge. Raisins and dates perhaps. Low bitterness but enough to keep things in balance. Medium bodied. Three years ago I would have loved this for it’s heavy maltyness - now I just like it. Kronebryg (1124) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - APR 17, 2011

Bottle. Pours very dark brown. Aroma and taste is malty and has some wood. Also some hops in the aroma. The malt is litte to burnt and the finish is to dry and harsh. ralphdot (1094) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2012
5.3% and not a bad beer but they have annoyed me immensely, if the monkey had been hanging I would have really enjoyed it but at the time I was too confused by the drivel on the label.
The label on the back claims that the beer was named for an old legend (to do with my home town), en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monkey_hanger but it is obviously not, it is named after a type of adjustable spanner and nothing to do with the legend. I can not see why they even bothered printing it. TorbenH (1073) - Frederikshavn, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2013
brown, clear, minimal head, tan foam, chocolate, coffee, nuts, medium body, creamy, average carbonation, bitter, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle. Pours a dark chestnut brownish red, with a tannish head that disappears slowly. Wet, dripping lacing. Big caramel aroma, with soft chocolate and some toffee, too. Nice. Flavor has caramel, and some bizarre BBQ-sauce tinge, but not smoky. Metallic aftertaste. Thin, watery body. Refreshing taste, and easy to drink. Unique flavors, but wouldn’t call it a strong ale.

Pint bottle. Pours to a bright, deep brown color, with a soapy white head that fades, and a soft carbonation. The nose on this beer is malty with aromas of sweet malt, nuts, and treacle. The palate is soft with good flavors of sweet malt, light estery fruit, and flavors of treacle and molasses. This beer finishes with more sweet malt and molassess flavor, and has just enough flowery hop bitterness to take the cloying edge off this beer. A very enjoyable pint of beer.
