3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
