Cask @ Blakes of Dover, 1 February, 2006harrisoni (18801) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2005
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.
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 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 fiulijn (20604) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2005
Dark amber color. Nice malty aroma. Round malty taste with a good hoppiness. Good one. suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Dark toffee colored pour. Small off white head. Not much lacing. Huge roasted biscuit aroma. Malt. Malty taste with a slight rubber note. Not bad at all.

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... Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of kook. Clear, orangey brown with a lightly creamy, off-white head. Slightly perfumy, hoppy nose. Medium body, malty and lightly caramelish. A dry and rather clean, hoppy finish. 210906 Gary (1999) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2009

Bottle bought from Asda in Folkestone whilst on holiday.Dark brown and slightly dry with a small head. Not a lot of body but enough flavour to make it a pleasant if average example of this style. meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2012
Light fruity, light herbal and malty aroma. Brown beige head, good lace. Malty, herbal, hoppy, sweetish, light bitter. Medium body. Flavourful.
