An interesting bottled beer. Gentle flavours. Slight cherry taste. Ruby appearance. Worth trying. rdgmartin (5) - Bletchley, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2012 does not count
Fantastic ruby ale. Creamy head. Plenty of alcohol hit, more than the 5% would have you think. Treacle and mollasses.

500ml bottle - a lovely beer. Pours a deep ruby - nearly black - with a thick white head which lasts throughout. Nice smoky aroma, with hints of burnt cereal. Nice earthy bite with a good mouth feel and an after taste of toast. Very good.

Bottle. Deep dark ruby with thin tan head. Nose is berries - blackberries. Hint of toffee. In the mouth there's powdered chocolate, more blackberry, grape. Mouth feels just right for this brew and the finish is sweet with a hint of bitter. Rather nice. stravale (3088) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - APR 11, 2012
