A hazy deep red beer with a thin rim of off-white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of berries and lighter ones of metal. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of berries, leading to a dry slightly woody end. MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2006
Cask @ Blakes of Dover, 1 February, 2006thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2006
Wonderful winter warmer in true style. Big flowery hoppy aroma. Sweet but not overly so. Bitter but well balanced. Complex but still easily overviewed. Fruity, nutty, toffee, butterscotch, malts, hops. The full monty.
Ligt brown with a reddish note. Small head.Nice caramel aroma. Sweet caramel flavours with grapefruit hoppiness, yieldng a dry finish. Full-bodied and soft. A well-above average strong ale. fiulijn (20427) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2005
Dark amber color. Nice malty aroma. Round malty taste with a good hoppiness. Good one. harrisoni (18437) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2005
Cask at Dover Beer Festival. I am a self confessed fan of this brewery and this beer bears all the hallmarks of why I like it. Really interesting malts and a good agressive hop flavour. Sweetish malt with good fruit leads to a big satisfying finish. As you can tell I am a big fan

A slightly sweet red-brown beer. Fruity and nutty. The aroma isn’t very distinctive. Some bitterness on the finish. Pleasant, but not very imposing for a strong ale. Cask (gravity), White Cliffs Festival, February 2005.

Bottled, from Pitfield’s in London. Rather exotic and complex aroma with some floral, spicy hops, pineapple, pear, dried apricot, various leafy herbs, toasty malt, anise, mint, tree bark and persimmon(?). Medium red-orange color, cloudy, with a lasting, fine, creamy off-white head. Flavor profile is hop oriented -- spicy, flowery and lightly citric, with moderate amounts of biscuity malt and hop bitterness and a fruity, tangy, nutty, dry finish. Body is medium, the palate finely effervescent. Interesting and unique. JorisPPattyn (9929) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2004
Fully hazy orange-amber; amber-yellow head, irregular, fast dwindling. Perfumed, vanilla, cardemom peel nose. Touch smoked flavour, tobacco-ashes. Quite some hops, not exactly the best IMO. Lots of malt, giving some (bitter) chocolate in the finish + more tobacco. Medium bodied. Mineral water feel, refreshing despite the dark malts. Nice beer, but only a Brit would call a 6% ABV beer a "strong" ale... DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2004
Orange-red with beige head.
Fruity aroma with tutti-frutti tones. Flowery with tones of hops.
Hoppy flavor, dry with really nice bitterness omhper (24980) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2003
Bottled. Reddish brown. Raspberry aroma. Malty and fruity, sweet and port-like with salty, bitter finish.
