gegwilson (3708) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle from B&M Stockton. Very dark body with a cream head. Good rich flavours of caramel, raisin and a touch of licorice before a nice bitter stuff. Good tastey stuff, but easy drinking too.

Very tasty and smooth. For a rich ale very approachable. Not up to Belgian standard but still very nice.

hohops (998) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Appearance is very dark brown, a bit hazy, a thick half-finger beige head which lasts well. Looks good. Aroma- nutty, brown bread, treacle, dark malts, creamy malt, hop hints. Taste- smooth nutty malt, roast nuts, toffee, dark fruits, raisin, malt loaf, brown bread. Rich fruitcake. Smooth and slightly sticky mouthfeel with some bitter hops in the finish. Nice one.

harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2006
500ml bottle from Cask and Glass, Tonbridge. Dark ruby with dark beige head. Good dark fruit, damsons, plums, dark toffee, touch of herby hop. More toffee in mouth. Sweetish beer with some boiled sweet. Good dark beer, wih some bitter choc/coffee. However, would be excellent in live in cask

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2006
Rich, heady nose. Pours very dark amber with a firm cream head. Flavour is complex with dark notes being balanced by some vinous, sherry-like sweetness. Finish is pleasingly astringent on the back of the tongue, with a lingering citrus and honey malt. Very nice indeed.

3.7
Sofajoern (146) - DENMARK - NOV 15, 2006
Very dark mahogany colour with a nice lasting head on it. Aroma of dark plums, roasted nuts, caramel and over ripe dark berries - lovely. Quite full bodied with an almost winelike quality. In addition to the flavours from the aroma, this also has a touch of strong english licquorice. Subtle bitter finish with lasting spicyness. Me like. Me like a lot.

Borup (14511) - Albertslund, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2006
Bottle. Brown colour with a huge beige head. Aroma and flavour of malt, nuts and plums.

3.7
Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Bottle, Big Bang, Oxford. Dark caramel, small layer of tan. Plumy fruit aroma, dry toast, chocolate. Soft, very pleasant. Dry caramel flavor, soft roast, a touch of coffee and chocolate. Substantial body, dry, gentle finish. A really decent porter. (Yes, it’s a porter.) Wish I could find it from the cask.
