The beer poured great with a nice reddish orange hue, a nice foamy one finger head and good lacing on the glass throughout. The beer smells great with a somewhat sweet caramel malts and a hint of citrus hoppiness on the back end. The taste is great with a caramel malt/mild citrus taste up front then slides into a mildly hoppy bitterness on the back end, a nice transition. The mouthfeel is outstanding as the beer is somewhat medium bodied, well carbonated, and leaves with a somewhat dry but sweet, boozy feeling. Overall, a solid English Strong beer that I would rank up there. Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Dark red, clear appearance. The aromas are mild raisin, cherry, and some red berries. Pretty subtle aromas here. The flavor is sweet, with sugar and slight cocoa, cherry, and a moderately bitter finish. An almost spritzy mouthfeel, and moderately warming. Decent.  ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - APR 8, 2011
A - Served a mostly clear copper-red color with a finger of frothy white head. The head had good retention, reducing down to a spotty layer and ring, lacing nicely on the glass.
S - Aroma is full of sweet lightly roasted caramel malts and just a bit of hops. There also a light fruit aroma mixed in.
T - Starts off with some sweet caramel malts and just a touch of hop bitterness blended in. There is also a bit of spice in the background. Through the middle, the malt flavor gets a bit stronger and there is a bit of bread flavor alongside. The finish is a blend of sweet caramel malts and just a touch bitter.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Nice clean finish, very smooth and crisp without being watery.
D - Very drinkable and well balanced. Nice flavors and a nice malt/hop balance. Could have used maybe a bit more flavor, but what was there was really enjoyable. beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 3, 2011
Growler filled at the brewpub and consumed the next day. Pours a cloudy amber with a thin, somewhat soapy looking, off-white head that lasted through the first couple of sips and left light lace. There is not much aroma to speak of save a few weak wisps of malt. The flavor is malt and fairly dry leading to a moderately bitter finish. There is no individual flavor component to the bitterness, it just sort of arises out of the malt and extends the dryness. Medium bodied. An ok beer, but not something I would look to drink regularly. Sammy (12195) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2010
Draft at the brewpub. Lower alcohol and better than the Triple B. Crystal and Horizon hops used. Clearly a different name posted on the menu. Fruity amber-golden colour with lace on the side. Like a double English IPA. Tasty, fruity bitterness, complex.Fuller mouthfeel, not getting hops in aroma.
