mike_77 (5826) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2007
Rich, dark brown colour. Aroma of roasted malt and dark fruits. Flavoutr is quite bitter with some woody, oaky notes.The dryness of this one is a bit demanding on the pallet but overall it’s a good bitter.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2007
Dark brown with a huge, creamy head and nice lace. The aroma has nice notes of roasted malt, caramel and fruit. The flavour is very well balanced and it has the same notes as the aroma, but also weak hints of coffee and nuts. The finish has a nice bitterness - and it’s a nice beer.

Bottle from Morrisons. Mahogany coloured with a dent off-white , lacy head. Fruity malt aroma with some roasted notes, and a hint of spice. The flavour was malty with a slightly salty savoury edge and a touch of chocolate. Decent bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

Sept, 2002The bottled version is like diving through a bubble bath of hops. Quite yummy! [2.9 ]
Nov, 2007 500ml bottle from Morrisons. Strong fizz, then the dark malt comes through. Smells like an old fashioned pop, like Dandelion & Burdock. Certainly there’s some caramel in here. Drinkable and tasty enough. [31]

Pours a dark amber with a fluffy beige head. Aroma features sharp fresh hops, with a hint fo bannana fruit. On the palate there is sweet rich roasty malt, bannana and a firm bitter finish. Well constructed original beer.

Bottle. Poured a reddish brown colour, with thick white head. Malty, coffee aroma, sweet, malty and coffee taste, with bitter aftertaste, Creamy, slightly carbonated mouthfeel. IT to much coffee tasting for my palate.

HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2007
Bottle 500ml. Aroma of fruit, nuts and some coffee. Pours ruby with a medium off-white (just) head. Fruity, coffee flavours coming through, leaving a bitter sweet aftertaste. Slight carbonation makes it easier to drink but it is surprisingly thin for a strong ale. In fact, it is altogether too thin for my liking.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAY 3, 2007
Bottle. Ruby with chestnut hints, huge firm tan head. Nose is quite peppery, malty and some hop - rather a nose of meaty, sausagey, herby tones. Mouth is quite malty, sweet and chocolate. Hints of espresso, roasted. Follows on as an oak smoke, slightly bitter palate. Quite good, not fantastic, little carbonated, needs a dimension that only cask can offer.
