Dark coloured and strong in alcohol. Fruity like a porter with a whisky flavoured finish. Ibrew2or3 (8808) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Wow, strong ale, eh? Not really sure it fits into this style. 16.9 oz bottle that pours out mostly clear brown with slight red hue that gets the color close to amber. It has a thin tan colored head too. The aroma has a couple of malt notes such as sweet malts with a hint of roastiness, biscuit malts and vague dark fruitiness as well. Nice malty flavor that yields snippets of roasted malts, biscuit malts and a hint of caramel malts. About midway a more roasted malt surfaces along with the vague dark fruitiness picked up in the nose. Very tasty brew. Svesse (8731) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2009
(Bottle) Reddish brown colour with a frothy, beige head. Malty nose with toffee, caramel, chocolate, dark fruit and dark bread. Malty taste with notes of caramel, toffee, chocolate, dark fruit, dark bread and a hint of cold coffee. Slightly bittersweet finish with a medium bitterness. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Not really daring, but a nice and tasty beer. In short: bittersweet caramel toffee. nimbleprop (8723) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2006
Poured a maple brown with a white head from the bottle. Initial aroma was sugary sweet and malty. Taste was surprisingly pleasant, roasted malt, brown sugar, a little bit of orange citrus. Finish is clean, not at all bitter. I can’t imagine anyone would dislike this beer. The_Osprey (8682) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Cask HP at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as ’Daleside Monkey Wrench’, 5.3%. I misread the label and ordered a ’honkey wench’. Time to book an optician appointment. Dark brown, opaque with a red hue, foamy tan head. Aroma is airy, some flat cola, dates, touch papery. Body is smooth, almost oily, with lowish carbonation. Taste is a touch thin, cardboard, raisin, some more watery cola, papery, carpet. Wishy washy finish. The flavour builds over time and it’s an ok beer overall. Grew on me. Wouldn’t come back to it though.

Like it. Brown coloured and clear. Has a white head, medium duration. Sweet, malty aroma, grain too and caramel. Sweet flavor, nice malty notes, ight bitter finish. Creamy and soft. DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2011
Bottle. Chestnut with a fine beige skim. Aroma a bit Old Peculier; varnished wood with hints of liquorice, dried milk powder and muscovado sugar. Flavour of burnt Twiglet, liquorice, brown sugar, slightly leathery, doppelbock-like malt. No hops. Tasty. PorterPounder (8228) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft - 500 ml bottle. Dark burnt orange to copper pour, tight khaki head. Fresh lake water aroma, hint of toffee. Flavor has some toffee as well, hint of caramel, a bit of butterscotch. Nice underlying bitterness throughout. Good Sesseion material. FROTHINGSLOSH (8069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a brown color with ruby highlights and a small khaki head that faded quickly. The aroma was light sour malts and fruity hops. The flavor was malty, vaguely sour and tangy with a light caramel element. The mouthfeel was a bit thin and watery. Finn (7916) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2016
Fra fat på Briar Rose, Birmingham 21 Sep 16. Mørkebrun. 0 skum. Aroma av karamell. Smaken det samme. Søt. Grei men uvariert.
