Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a deep redish brown with a great almost white medium creamy head. Aroma is mild with caramel dominating, but a little underwhelming. Very nice creamy smoth mouthfeel. Flavour is nice with a good degree of toffee, caramel and a little peity oakiness. Lovely balance. shrubber85 (11582) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2014

Reddish brown pour with an offwhite head. Aroma is pretty subtle with caramel, light peat and light roast. Flavor is malty and slightly hoppy. DocLock (10973) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Bottle from State Line. Ruby coppery pour with 1-finger tannish head. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel malty (slightly charred), red wine, British hops, some tannins, and peat mossy hints. Caramel malt and tart tannins dominate the taste, with some mild dark chocolate, earthy malty, and finishing hop notes, plus tinges of spirits.

Cask at Town Street Tavern, Horsforth. Pours a dark reddish brown with a tight white head. Very fruity aroma, red fruit, plum, cooked cherry, that sort of thing. Biscuity malts and toffee too. Slightly sweet finish, but a nice beer. ManVsBeer (10928) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2012
A hoppy ale in aroma and to an extent in character but negated by its strength. kp (10881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2010
