Pours a hazy copper with an average head. Aroma of sweet toasted malts and caramel. Flavor has caramel, sweet breads, and fruits dipped in alcohol. I really enjoyed this brew.

Clear dark mahogany with a big head that slowly drops to a head cover, mottled streaks of lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt and medium hops - coast to coast! Both sides contribute their strengths the entire way, even through the lingering finish. A solid offering from Gearys, maybe their best. Recommended.

Bire achete dans le Maine, dans une caisse mixte de dgustation. Couleur roux fonc qui tire vers le brun, mousse correcte, beige. 7% dalcool, bien que ce ne soit pas inscrit sur la bouteille. Nez intressant de sucre dorge, de gomme baloune et de houblon. En bouche, on dnote dabord une belle prsence. Sucre bien balanc, avec une touche houblonne bien calibre elle aussi. Un tantinet liquoreuse, cette bire na rien voir avec les bires lgres amricaines quon boit souvent aux tats-Unis. Belle surprise. Le got de sucre dorge se mle parfaitement aux notes dalcool. Cela descend trs bien. Dcidment un bon petit produit quon se doit de verser dans un verre, dailleurs! Cheers!

Not much to smell, almost no aromas. Color is a medium red - brown. Darker than I expected but I complements the taste. Intial flavor is toasted biscuit. The more I drink the hops start making an appearance. A Malty start with a nice hoppy finish.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 30, 2013
A - Pours a clear dark amber. 1.5 finger head that sinks down to a nice ceiling. S - Toffee malt, slight spice, alcohol vapors, fruity-mostly grapes. T - Roasted toffee malt, nutty gingerbread spices, sharp citrus, apples, dates, and butterscotch. All this is surrounded with with quite a bit of grassy lemon hop bitterness. Finishes dry. M - Medium to full bodied and creamy. The rich fruity malt is masterfully balanced by the grassy hops. A very complex brew that is a joy to drink. Serving type: bottle 12-12-2010

Dark clear amber pour with a frothy off-white head. Smells as traditional as any English ale so well done there. Dark fruits, musty yeast, english hops in the nose. Flavor is mild and pleasant. Typical savory english yeast flavor that im not a huge fan of but it is done properly.

Bottle. Pours light amber. Buttery smooth with some bitter. Nothing special.
