Has a rather peaty, Scotch flavor to it, not a Scotch fan at all, but I can appreciate that this is a good ale. RexTalionis (3726) - FINLAND - FEB 6, 2011

750ml bottle from LCBO. pours clear orange with a small, frothy white head. aroma is skunky with some mild notes of vanilla. taste of watered down whisky, some oak and some sweetness. not much bitterness. mouthfeel is medium bodied and low carbonation. not a very good beer at all. glennmastrange (2855) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Bottle. Moderate caramel and light bread for the malt, a hint of cooked orange for the hops, faint dough for the yeast, with background notes of wood, vanilla, candy sugar and bourbon. Head is small, frothy white with some lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear orange/amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and finishes lightly sweet, and faintly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, slick and has a soft to lively carbonation. Either the aging or the remnants of the cask contents play a big part in the taste of this English Strong Ale.
