Bought in Tesco. Deep copper colour, thin white(ish) head that lasts well. Good nose of dried friuts and a good hit of roast malt. Full bodied, slightly sweet, robust hops coming through on the finish, this is good!

5/10/16 bottle at home. Oh my, this is what a strong ale should be like. Malt overload but so well done that it works. Satisfying from pour to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Premier Hele Bay Garage, Ilfracome. Clear copper-brown with a frothy head. Sweet in both aroma and taste, with a mild spiciness among more dominant dark malts. Its a fairly smooth tasting strong ale.

mt_hall (193) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2016
Bottled. A very dark red-brown (but not as dark as a stout.) Has a good sized head of fine, light brown foam. Aromas of toffee, burnt caramel, and malt, with some freshness to balance and some spice (clove?) A sweet start in the mouth and then a drier, spicy finish. Good body and warmth; well balanced. Excellent.

joeneugs (6060) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 8, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Grocery Outlet. It pours a medium/dark brown color with an off white head. The aroma is massive caramel, toffee, oxidation, light cocoa and hints of treacle. The flavor is pretty much the same. A little nutty, molasses, lots of caramel, little bit of toast near the finish. Tastes a bit old, but I guess thats to be expected when you buy beer at Grocery Outlet. Not something Id look forward to drinking again, but seems like it might be good to cook with.
