Cask at the White Swan, Solihull. Poured a clear reddish brown witn a frothy very light tan head. The aroma is rich Rio red berry fruit. The flavour is moderate bitter with a rich over ripe fruit yeast, dry mineral palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Ibrew2or3 (8358) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 13, 2008
12 oz bottle courtesy of Degarth. Pours deep amber with assertive bubbly to creamy tan head. The aroma is a mixture of highly roasted malts, mild dark fruity esters, molasses and an herbal note. Overall the aroma is pretty light. The taste is just like the aroma with roasty malts, mild dark fruity esters, some mild coffee, chocolate malts and a bold brash earthiness. These notes create an enjoyable superposition of flavors. Certainly a nice warm up during the winter.

onceblind (8211) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Pours out a very dark and deep ruby hue, creamy yet spotty khaki head that actually leaves pretty good lace. Smells like fruity malts with a subtle citrus hop. Taste is almost entirely different from the nose, and massively complex. Citrus rind bites at first, but gets pushed aside for a toast crust & caramel body. Dark fruits and nuts round out the end with some subtle winter spices. Interesting, but I dont think I could drink a 6 pack.

drowland (7917) - Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2009
12oz bottle into a pint glass. The pour is very dark brown with lots of red when held to the light and a 2-finger khaki head that sticks. The aroma is laid back but shows hints of malt, dark fruits, and pumpkin pie spices. The flavor is sweet up front but finishes quite dry, as perhaps a combination of roasted malts and hop bitterness. Slightly creamy but still medium carbonation.

Not my favorite ESA. 2008 Bottle. Pours with a extremely large, light brown head. Extremely dark brown body. Good lacing. Aroma of roasted nuts, meat, cinnamon, spices, hay and a few persimmons. Taste is rotten fruits, a bit metallic, some spices, oatmeal, raisins, a bit of alcohol and a couple of weak hops. Creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with a thin off-white filmy head. Big sweet nose, maybe a little oxidated & tart. Light body, light carb, moderately aggressive sweet malt flavors on the attack, some c-hoppy resiny bitterness at the finish. Fairly indistinct.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors, 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, khaki head, sticky lacing. Vegetable-like aroma with hints of rhubarb, Christmas spices and a hint of cinnamon.
