50 cl bottle from Meny Kolsås. Pours clear deep amber with a small offwhite head. Aroma of liquorice and coffee. Malty flavor with espresso notes. Light body, light bitterness, a bit watery, and a long sticky malty after taste. A bit boring.

0.5l bottle. This is a crystal clear deep amber-red one with a small quite disappointing off-white bubbly top that quickly sticks to the sides of the glass. The aroma has tones of bitter cocoa, sweet malts, red fruits and some dark caramel. It smells quite alright this. It’s average on the carbonation and the mouthfeel is quite thin and watery. Nutty-bitter flavors with more dry cocoa powder, some watery sweet fruits and a soft earthy bitterness towards the finish. Not to impressed to be honest, but it does not taste bad in any way. Wish it was a bit more challenging. 21.02.2013

[email protected], Leicester. Reddish black beer, the aroma is lightly hopped, and the flavour is mildly malty and hopped. Overall a nice plainly bitter, roasted, and mildly malty beer.

Cask, Criterion, Leicester. Copper, red with a small head. Aromas are blackberry with liquorice and herbal notes. Vinous with spices. Flavours are earthy "kentish" hops with sweet berries and toffee. Dry on the finish. Some herbal notes. Decent.

imdownthepub (15379) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Last Drop Inn, York. Brown red with white head. I got a smokey flavour out of the roased sweet malt, a hint of bonfire, then a sweet toffee / caramel. Not exactly bitter, but reasonable and unusual.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2009
A Valentine’s Day brew, bottled, Booths, Windermere. Peachy aroma, the flavour is dry, a hint of grassiness, with apricots coming through. I sensed a cough-mixture like flavour somwhere in there aswell. Full bodied, robust and alcoholic, tastes stronger than its 4.2% abv. Very more-ish, with a dry, yet fruity finish.

Glisland at Hadrian’s Wall.
Bottled, 270708.
Reddish brown with white head. Aroma of malt and red berries. Flavor of caramel and lots of fruit. Dry roast finish
