Dark, deep red/brown ale with a tan head. Satisfying aroma of caramel. Light and easy to drink, mild carbonation with fruity and roasted caramel/toffee notes. Finishes with a pleasant tang. Very enjoyable. SilkTork (5737) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Absolute gusher. Deeply gorgeous. This is an Old Ale based on a recipe from 1937 for Whitaker's Old Tom. Toffee flavours mix happily with oak aged wine, lettuce, and a little sour fruit. Saaz hops in the finish. Brilliant! OwainTurner (425) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2015
A very very nice beer! I was not expecting as much (Camra often does not inspire). Very tasty brew. A rich ans fruity beer. Om nom. joet (2606) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - SEP 2, 2003
wow, tobacco, toasty, foaming on the tongue, the roasty malts dampen into earthy hops and leaves-in-the-fall in a big round mouthfull. Sigmund (7458) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2007
500 ml bottle, bought in Scarborough. Bottle conditioned. ABV is 5.0%. Copper coloured beer with a large and lasting creamy tan head. Pleasant aroma of fruity hops and malt. Lovely malty flavour with some caramel and fruity hops. A very nice and drinkable beer indeed.

I really enjoyed this beer it is a very slow to pour beer that must not be served too cold jamesie1857 (2147) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2012
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. AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - AUG 25, 2003
Bottle. Hmm, how did this wind up at the Dallas tasting of August 2003? Dark, nice smooth head. More porter-esque than a bitter, which the label claims. Chocolate-coffee, thick and hearty mouthfeel. Nice lingering finish. Whelk (123) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2008
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark reddish-brown with a tight off-white head. Aroma is strong fruit, earthy cellar, and light hops. Taste is roasty, toasty malts that fade to an astringent, herbal dry finish. Some cinnamon/cloves as well.
