Pours a fire brick red with a fizzy short lasting head. Aroma of lightly roasted caramel, coffee, and salted chestnuts. Flavors of dark fruits, toffee, caramel, and spices. Maybe a hint of sweet pipe tobacco. As the bottle warms more complexities show. I like this one! DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2004

Bottle from utobeer. Pours a dark chocolate with tan head rich dark fruit flavours are followed by a malty slightly smokey nose. Fruityness is then cleaned away by a surprising bitter finish great stuff! astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2010

Apperance: Dark brown with a creamy beige head. Some lacing.
Aroma: Dark bread, Roasted malt, Dried fruit (pear!), Chocolate.
Flavor: Roasted malts, Coffee, Chocolate, Nuts, Fruit, Dark caramel.
Palate: Quite heavy on the roasted side with some pleasant bitterness at the end. Body is somewhat thin. Carbonation is just the way i like it (medium).
Very drinkable english-style beer. Might need to buy this again if i can get my hands on it.
50cl bottle, no date. Somewhere just brown of ruby in color, thin white foam with quick fading retention but very nice lacing. Lots of caramel malts in the aroma, dried fruits and whatnot with some nuttiness. Nice firm bitterness keeps the malt attack from being cloying bbrock81 (317) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - DEC 10, 2008
Pours a fairly dark brown, with a medium head. Aroma is of English hop, malt, and a bit of spice. The flavor follows, being more malty, with a hoppier finish. A very decent beer.
