Bottle...pours a dark amber color...minimal tannish head. Fruity malt nose...sweet, wow basically overly sweet malt flavor, maybe some caramelish toffee notes in there. Nahh, this aint getting it done. It says "A powerful smooth strong ale...". Dont believe it for a second. Id believe a powerfully fruity sloppy mess, but thats about it. Thin and crappy. Dont waste your time on this.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2004
Ferm beer with a warm-brown color and a fluffy white head. It has a rich aroma of fine roasted malts with a hoppy accent. The taste is original and it has a smooth mouthfeel with hints of ripe fruits, touch of pepper, caramel and fine malts. It ends in a bitterness of roasted malts and hops.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2009
Brewed in England....... 4th of July bash. Pours a copper color with zero head. Aroma of caramel, malts and candy. The taste is also of malts, caramel and a hint of fruit. The mouthfeel is mild, kind of thin with a bitter/sweet finish. Not bad, but not exciting either.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2006 [bottle] Pours a dark brown color- tastes pretty malty. Dark malts, some light fruits. Moderately sweet- full mouthfeel. Enjoyable, for sure. Nothing too exciting, however.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 1, 2008
500ml brown bottle from The Lighthouse in Manchester. Pours a translucent dark brown-red with nearly an inch of off-white head. Smells roasty with hints of English hops, but the aroma is not that apparent. Tastes roasty, malty, nutty with just a hint of herbal hops present toward the finish. Tastes are fairly subtle, but are all very pleasant. Smooth, medium mouth-feel with some carbonation but not too much. Very drinkable, this beer is. At 5$ per bottle, its a little pricier than something Id drink on a daily basis. But its a smooth, easy-drinking, solid English beer that I may pick up from time to time.

500ml bottle. Clear, ruby brown colour with a bubbly white head. Malty, slightly metallic aroma. Sweet, malty, fruity flavour. Nice
