6th August 2008. On tap at GBBF. Very strong porty sweetness with a marochino cherry streak riding along. Sweet a like a liquer! Dangeroulsy drinkable. Slightly hoppy finish and aftertaste. Also some warmth. Sumptuos! fonefan (51574) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2008

Goldeny amber colour with small white head. Aroma is cherry, cookies, alcohol and some almonst with mild notes of honey. Flavour is almost exactly the same with alcohol being quite evident.
Draught. Low lasting off-white fluffy head. Clear golden body. Honey cherry aroma. Dry hoppy alcohol dominated flavor. Low carbonation, long aftertaste. Disgustingl alcohol dominance. cgarvieuk (26077) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2008

Cloudy golden with medium off white head. Sweet aroma with cherry, malty and alcohol notes. Sweet flavor with cherry, caramel and alcohol notes. A bit boozy. chriso (7536) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2004
Red/brown colour. I’m assuming there is some cherry in here, but its not too obvious. It has a moist, woody aroma with some pruney fruit in the flavour, taking on some sour fruit notes in the finish. Interesting. Cask (gravity dispense) at Peterborough Beer Festival. SilkTork (5880) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2004
Peterborough Fest. It was good to see some big beers at this Fest, after the timid display at GBBF. And this was certainly a handsome beer. Dark ruby/ cherry colour. Aroma of a dark vintage ale, even - initially - with hints of cardboard. Raisins and biscuits. Old Ale. Sweaty oak. Sweet toffee. Smooth mouthfeel. Lots happening. A fascinating and very enjoyable ale.
