Bottle. I am with imdownthepub on this beer. Mahogany colour with a cream head. Dark fruits and malt on nose (black cherry) good malty flavours with some chocolate but mostly caramel and nice hop to balance. Not too sweet for a beer of this strength and very nice indeed mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2005
Clear ruby colourwith a persistent creme head. Sweet fruity aroma. Huge malt flavour with raisins and some roasty bitterness. This is for a true malthead.

Aroma: Nose is mostly dark fruity hops, with the malts, and caramel scents in there as well
Appearance: Reddish brown, dark looking beer
Flavor: Nice sweetness to this one, similar to the nose, except the caramel and malts are slightly stronger and the fruit fades in and mixes with the rest of the flavors
Palate: Medium body, drinks pretty nicely and quickly
I thought this one was pretty nice, a good flavor, and a smooth drink. A little lighter then I would have guessed from the appearance. Overall though, a very nice beer.
Decent beer. Poured with a tan head that quickly settled down and no lace. Color is a lovely clear medium red amber. Aroma is very malty roast toffee and a hint fruity. Flavor is like aroma. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor and medium in length. Serviceable beer. If you were in the mood for a straightforward malty ale this could be a session.

tasing of caramel, dried fruit and fruitcake.
really nice ale with lot of taste. rondphoto (4383) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Dark red-amber with a long lasting head and thick lace. Solid sweet caramel malt with overtones of sorghum molasses and biscuit. As it moves through the palate a smooth floral hop bittering provides a cleansing balance. At the finish, sweetness re-emerges. An excellent beer. mkel07 (5847) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2016
030116. This English dark ale is a drop worth hunting down as it is loaded with flavour and carries a long strong finish. I picked up this 500ml bottle at Cool Wine in Hobart a few months back and I am glad that I did.
More malty than hoppy or bitter the beer pours a translucent copper colour with a thick head that settles and thins out after a while. There is caramel and some toffee aromas in the nose, with some vanilla hiding in the background.
The flavour very much mirrors the aroma , with some spiced fruit thrown into the mix, and the beer while initially thin in the mouths builds to a creamy mouthfeel. At 5.3% ABV it is certainly very drinkable.
