Dark with quite a mixed bag of flavours and a slightly bitter aftertaste. Could drink a couple Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Good brown color,small off white head that faded quickly leaving nothing behind.The aroma was roasty with maybe some hints of chocolate and a faint hint of smoke hidden in there as well.The flavor is malty upfront with a nice smooth roasty side some hints of chocolate.Very smooth brew with some nice flavors much better then i was expecting,and well worth trying again.

Bottle shared with Veitafan. Pours a clear reddish brown colour with a small beige head. Careful aroma of some wood, leather, malt, rye bread, dried fruit and hint of chocolate. More pronounced flavour of the same but with a fruityness that feels a bit belgian. Nice. Has a slick mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. A balanced and good Christmas ale.

Dark brown colour poor head and lacing. Sweet malt fruit cheery aroma. Rich malt fruity flavour. Smooth palate.

Klar møkebrun farve med lys beige skum. Lukt av røstet malt og frukt. Smak av røstet malt, karamell og frukt. Lett bitter og minimalt karbonert. Vinmonopolet. KeefOz (1890) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2013
BB 06Feb14. Poured a mahogany red brown colour with a thin light tan bubbly head that diminished quickly to a line of bubbles. Poor lacing. Low carbonation. Aroma delightfully of chocolate but with under-lying alcohol. Taste of malt sweetness followed by a nice mild tasty hops bitterness that was not over-bearing. Medium body. Smooth finish. Quite OK. aleksander9 (1874) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2013
Nice dark brown with small off-white head. Small aroma of sweet caramel, floral hops, metal and roasted malt. Nice vinous mouth feel with small carbonation. Aftertaste is molasses, roasted malt, sweet caramel and floral hops. Overall: nice. Miss better aroma. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Pours dark drown w/ a tall lasting froth. Superb lacing. Aromas of mocha and mild darkfruits. Medium nectar w/ relaxed effers that create a rich, truely creamy texture. A dry brew w/ a mild roast upon fields of mocha, dates, cherry skins, molases, coffee bean, roasted chestnuts. There is a rather defined bittering component that sets up shop early and works into the wee hours. The finish is long and flavorfull w/ perfect bittering. This brew is full flavored and very English in nature. RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2010
From Bernies, Shirley, West Mids. A fine rich dark ruby brew. Classic Hook Norton flavour, balanced to perfection, bitter on the back of the throat, malty licquorice and fruit cake on the tongue. A cracking winter beer.
