Oakes (16515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
Dark brown and a little bit muddy. There is only a thin wisp of head. The aroma is malty with some dark fruit accents mimicking English yeast, Fullers wouldnt actually surprise me at all. There are caramel notes in the malt, balanced by light plums and dark fruit. The sweetness is balanced slightly by the high alcohol and a lightly chocolatey character. Good ale when I had it years ago, and now it tastes a little old school but still good ale.

Voodoo (610) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2012
Pours a deep brown with a nice dense head. Quite flavorful with a touch of raisins, toffee and a light bittering. Admittedly smooth and almost crisp, not the norm for an English Strong. Nicely put together.

BillKismet (3956) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Thick mahogany body with a thin toasted caramel colored head. Nut caramel and toffee malting oozes off the body, soon leading to flavors of sharp brown malt, caramel nut, and some alcohol.
