harrisoni (18428) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle from The Bottle Shop Canterbury and drunk on the train to Ashford. Milk chocolate malty aroma. Strong but tasty sime figs and prunes. Good. Some peppery hop on the finish lasting bitterness. Really malty fruity like juicy figs and juicy raisins and sultanas. Lovely really. No real heat. Sweetish. I really like it. Smashing rarbring (2294) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2012
Aroma: Smelling of whipped eggs, fruit marmalade, some alcohol and spices (cinnamon, clove).DanielBrown (4499) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2012
Appearance: The beer is clear copper brown, a small warm off-white head, little lacing, good curtains.
Taste: Starting sweet brown bread, brown sugar, bitter orange marmalade, apple peel.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, soft and smooth, small foamy bubbles, a big body and a long dry finish.
Overall: Very sessionable, in spite of high ABV. Also shows that they knew how to brew really good and strong ale, the 19th century Britts.
Note: Bottle 500 ml. Reviewed 2012-10-10.
Bottle at Old Joint Stock, Brum. Very malty. A deceptively unbooming beer’, which starts from an ESB framework and leads to a warming hard handshaking concoction. I like it. It’s a powerful, but defiantly British beer. Kavu (4730) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2013
