Pours clear red amber with a fine, medium, frothy off-white head. Good duration, and fine lacing. Rather spicy and earthy aroma with a sweetish toffee touch. Fine, frothy creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sadly a bit metallic, lots of sweet caramel thickness. Light citric bitter. If the metallic notes weren’t there, this would be really great. Still, with that slight off-flavour, it’s very nice.
Bottle shared courtesy of egajdzis (thanks!). Best before date of Nov. ’05. Poured a darker mahogany color with a smaller sized tan head. Kinda of a musty and earthy aroma with leather coming out as it wamed up. Tastes of spices, light caramel, and earthy. Light alcohol in the finish. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2007

Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy deep coppery pour with aroma of caramel malt, fruit, some vinous notes, plus some funky cabernet notes. Tastes fruity, with caramel malt, vinous, nutty, and some cognac notes. The hops and spice appeared at mid-palate, and blended well with the flavor. leaparsons (10554) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2004
Dark red/brown in colour. Aromas are fruity, spicy and a touch musty. Good alcohol on the nose, too. Flavours are autumn fruits, toffee and sherry with warming alcohol to finish. Good stuff.
