Beese (2740) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle. Poured a lightly hazy amber colour, with a thin off-white head. Aroma of rich berries, burnt sugars and big malt. Nice balance of flavours; sweet fruits, treacle, mixed with chewy grain and some pine hops. Finish was perfect mix of caramel, dried fruits, peppery hops and herbs. tlind2 (1720) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle, stored cool. Copper color, tan head. Lead pencil and oak aroma. Licorice and juicy malts, some fruity notes. Full body, medium-light carbonation. Signature vintage malt flavor which has probably dried out a bit with time. Very nice. miquelcrush (2053) - Granollers, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2014

Bottle... Cloudy burnt-copper pour with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is a malty, estery swirl of dates, red grapes, fruitcake and sweet port. Full-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. The flavor is medium-sweet, boasting candied dates and raisins with a splash of vintage port. Malty, hearty, warming finish.

Pours ruby brown with a small white wisp. Aroma is raisin, caramel malt, barley and oak. Taste is sweet toffee and caramel malts, barley, oak dryness and raisin. It’s in the wheelhouse for me. Doofgoblin (513) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - APR 5, 2014
Excellent! Aroma is toffee, raisins, and caramel. Wow is this buttery like rum? Taste is tons of caramel sweetness that taste slightly toasted with some hints of raisins. The finish is so unbelievably smooth. This is an exceptional beer! MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2014
