Of a beer style that I rarely tested but repetié whenever possible. The only thing I miss is the density of water. I like beer with water denser and heavier Chalumeaux (1555) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 19, 2017
Poured from tap at Tuckaway hazy brown with a thin tan head. Aromas of chocolate rum dar fruit and caramel. Taste is sweet malt brown sugar dark fruit. tricksta_p (4663) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle from Hopt. Aroma is rich malts, caramel, toffee, touch of butterscotch and chocolate. Flavour is medium sweet and moderate bitter. Body is medium to full. Very robust sweet malt-heavy brew with a firm body, well-balanced stuff. Quite satisfactory. Bricks (1126) - Delaware, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Nice dark brown/red color. Smells of dark candy, earth, malt, caramel, molasses... not overly sweet, but sweetness is there. complex. Tastes of metallic notes, malt, grain, molasses... but quite neutral, a tad bitter.. a touch of alcohol. It’s not bad, more like a strong brown ale than a scotch ale. crispaire (238) - - FEB 11, 2017
enticing deep mahogany pour from bottle. i expected more aromatics, but only got faint whiffs of sweet malty goodness. fully, creamy body with soft carbonation. tastes very similar to a barleywine. the finish is a tad on the sweet side. overall, a complex brew with a great malt base and a warming finish.

355ml bottle into tulip. Smells of rich chocolate, rum and raisins, a little pepper. Mahogany red/brown beer with light only penetrating the edges. Small creamy off-white head. Slightly zingy mouthfeel, full bodied and viscous. Taste is dark bitter chocolate and cocoa. Finish is dry, bitter and malty. Warming alcohol notes at the end. Good dessert beer, really nice. commonshawn (1261) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2017
Tap at George and dragon. Dark red brown with thick off white head and good lacing. Nice malt nose. Taste is sweet, malt, biscuit, dark sugar. Complex. Good finish. Medium full body. nazbion (302) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - FEB 8, 2017
Pours hazy ruby-brown with thin beige head. Nice dark fruits, caramel and coconut aroma. Taste is sweet caramel with strong bitterness. Medium-full bodied, soft carbonation, lingering bitterness. uckelman (799) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Pours clear, reddish-amber. Ring of head. Dried fruit and wine aromas. Sweet. Not particularly bitter. Full, almost sliky body. Lively finish, a bit reminiscent of grape soda at that point. sarauckelman (540) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Opaque and very dark with no head. Not much aroma, but the flavor is a complex profile of varied flavors -- hops, roast, malt, a bit of smoke, a bit of sweet. It is a bit syrupy. Full bodied. Rich and full.
