Sweet grain malts, caramel, toffee, alcohol, dark fruits. Clear, dark gold, medium, creamy, off-white head. Medium sweet. Some sweet citrus fruits, more caramel and toffee, flat carbonation, full bodied, more alcohol and sweet malts in the finish. Feels a bit unbalanced, aroma is simplistic but not bad, palate is off though. Cask at Harp, Covent Garden.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask@Charlies Bar, Copenhagen - pours dark Amber with an off white head and lacing. Aroma and taste is sweet malty with caramel, brown sugar, fruit cake like with some nice dried fruit action, some light fruity spices, great condition, very nice. Rated this pretty low on bottle back in 2012, but this is a different beast on cask. Lovely.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at PSBH, Manchester. Reddish amber shade. Light tan head. Notes of citrus peel, toffee and winter berries. Quite an earthiness too. Taste hides the alcohol for the most part but is slightly on the sticky and gluey side. Pleasant strong ale.

Alla spina. Una ale dorata e mediamente schiumosa, maltata e mediamente luppolata con note di caramello, frutta secca e alcool. Buon corpo, amaro discreto, strutturata a sufficienza. Chissà la bottiglia.
