Dark brown, beige head. A welcoming sweet malty aroma was followed by a delightfully rich taste with raisins, citrus, and liquorice. Like eating a slice of Christmas cake. First beer I’ve had from this brewery. Good start.

Bottled. Dark brown, tan head. Very well flavoured with malt and caramel. A bit of sweetness. Good, strong ale.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2005
Bottled. Dark brown with a thin light brown head. Rich, malty, caramel aroma, worming and comforting on a winters day. Pleasantly surprising. A very smooth and appropriate drop on this chilly winters afternoon. Malt dominated after taste with whisky and rum notes to it as well. Warming and charming.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2005
Bottle (from Tesco, BBE Jul 06). Dark brown towards black. Liqourice and dark dry fruits with a strong caramely malt component. Moderately sweet as the caramel flavours become better integrated. Strength not noticeable.

harrisoni (19157) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2005
500ml bottle from Tesco. Black beer with thin tight beige head. Tar and liquorice and roasted malts. Some sourness in mouth, then liquorice finish. Some choc and coffee. More like an old ale for me. Nice enough though

RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2005
Bottle. Dark beer with a slightly reddish tinge. The aroma is mildly malty, (the caramel and toffee cannot quite get out) and the flavour is sweet, slightly vineous and fruity with a relatively deep bitter finish. Overall a pretty reasonable beer.

Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2005
From A Bottle.Dark brown in colour with a small fizzy head,aroma is sweet with some hops,taste is sweet with some malt.

rauchbier (3922) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2005
Bottle, from Tesco. Deep chestnut red, thin but lasting off white head and moderate condition. Gentle buttery caramel and faint hops in the nose, some more sweet caramel in the mouth with a touch of fruitiness and low flowery hops. Low bitterness in the finish with a touch of fruity sweetness and a faint hint of coconut.
