Light brown colour, almost no head. Aroma of nuts, chesnuts, raisins, ginger may be, toffee. Taste is light sweet, a bit bitter. Fruity flavour. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. danielyabu (1708) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - MAR 2, 2015
huge frothy offwhite head. excellent lacing. mostly diminishing. muddy thick light brown body. aroma: moderate nutty malty, caramel, milk chocolate and alcohol. if: moderate sweet. ff: light bitter; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic and heavy alcoholic finish. Aroma sorvete de chocolate. Dulçor bem maltado e achocolatado, lembrando também sorvete daquele, mas sem puxar para o lado da stout nem Porter. Sente-se o álcool, mas de forma mascarada, sem prejudicar nuances. Lembra um conhaque. Bem elegante. Leve amargor surge no final, balanceando o que por si só seria um dulçor saboroso, mas enjoativo a longo prazo. baixa drinkability – o leve amargor acaba não conseguindo combater o forte dulçor achocolatado e caramelado; isto, aliado ao forte teor alcoólico, a torna uma cerveja de degustação prolongada. Retrogosto de sabão surge como defeito grave. Lembra o sabor de outra cerveja bem famosa cujo nome não me recordo agora.110 s sharkydodson (1837) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - FEB 20, 2015
the aroma is caramel and herbal with hints of hops and spices... the taste is caramel and fruity with notes of toffee, citrus, spicy herbs and, a little bit, red wine... bright hoppy bitterness... sweet, bitter, spicy and dry aftertaste... olliejobbins (1577) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2015

Malty aroma of reisin and dried fruit with note of caramel. Medium to high wellrounded body. Taste is both intensive malty raisin, caramel and marmalade and Europe hop. Good balance. rzymol (119) - - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. Very intense copper colour and thin but quite stable foam head. Lots of coloidal yeasts but that does not disturb the whole appearance to me at all. Aroma of fresh earthy hops and toffee, not as intense as it could be and in my opinion, not very interesting. The taste built of bittereness at medium level just fine for the English Aleand well balanced with maltym toffee-like sweteness. Undetectable alcohol, and a bit yeasty dryness on the palate in the aftertaste. Quite thin body and I would rather have it more oily/slicky. Very drinkable. Overall, a very good English styled Ale.

Bottle from Cornelius. Gazy Amber, small off white head. Malty nose, and a bit trampy. Some fruit, medium
Caramel. Thickish mouth feel but clean finish. Ok but not my thing. jamestulloch (4361) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 Bottles from Provenance Wines and Cornelius. Murky chestnut body with a thin off-white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of dumpling, toffee, filter coffee, honey, smoked pine, Cadbury’s Fruit & Nut and amaretto. Flavour is surprisingly boozy. Notes of cinnamon, butterscotch, salted caramel, Soreen and Demerara sugar. Medium body with a creamy texture. Soft carbonation. An interesting beer that made me think.
