Hazy dark deep ruby brown, with a small light khaki head. Nose of earthy toffee, syrupy malt grains, raisin, and a little brown sugar. Flavor was nice and dark with a light spicy bitterness not unlike nutmeg and mulling spices, but it doesn’t taste like a winter warmer in that way...just a mild bitterness akin to it. Most of the flavor is dominated by a syrupy dark malt sweetness, with some rye bread, molasses, earthy toffee, and a hint of raisin. leaparsons (10859) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2009

Deep amber brown pour. The aroma is softly spicy and peppery. A little bit of light mintiness with a bit of soft bready character. A little bit of soft sweetness and a touch of pepper and clove as well. A bit of fruitiness on the back of the palate. A touch of white pepper and some nice estery fruitiness on the back of the palate. A little bit of soft rye character that ties it together quite nicely. mabel (10004) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2011
