MarkBarnes (414) - Waterville, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2006 Oct. 3, 2005 - 12 oz. bottle. A hearty Autumn/Winter brew. Sweet flavor is of red wine, smoke, fruit -- balanced nicely by a strong hop presence. The higher ABV is noticeable, but warms without overpowering the brew. Will be having this one again over the Winter, Im sure. Re-rate on Dec. 29, 2006: Bumped up the aroma score from "4" to "7". This is definitely more enjoyable in a Trappist glass.

Malty nose with big notes of sweet fruits and some alcohol. Hazy dark amber body, small white head. Sweet flavored, some roast and ends quite fruity.

madsberg (11655) - Sborg, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2005
Bottled: Amber coloured. Unclear. Brown coloured head. Light spiced, light grassy aroma. Flavour of liqourice sweetness and spice. Ends on a light sweet note. Strange brew.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 15, 2005
pours amber/brown with a small ring of white fine bubbles around the rim of the glass. Smells breaddy with some decent rose and grapefruit aromas popping through. Taste is on the nutty side like a brown ale with some mild peppery notes. A bit thin on the mouthfeel for an english strong ale, but very drinkable. A bit bland on the finish. This one has potential, but is not as balanced as other English Strongs Ive had.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2005 Couleur acajou aux reflets rouge extrme. Mousse beige pale et crmeuse, plutt persistante, adhrant partiellement au verre et se rsumant ventuellement laisser une fine couche sur le dessus du verre. Armes de malt hautement grill et de toast sous une touche doucement fruite. Saveurs toujours trs grilles presque chocolates sur une adquate prsence de houblon floral aux videntes rminiscences anglaises. La touche fruite dtecte en arme rappelle maintenant les poires bien mures et rappelle presque une oktoberfest lorsque combin au malt grillquoique que trop extrme pour jumeler la douceur de ce style. talement court, corps dpaisseur moyenne, carbonatation douce et faiblement piquante. Suprieur mes irraisonnables attentes.

Boutip (6214) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2005
Bottle: Poured a medium black color ale with a nice foamy off-white head with standard retention. Aroma of roasted malt is kind of weak and I could not find anything else really. Taste is also a bit thin with some roasted malt and not much else going on. As mentioned, body is thin and carbonation is low Ive had much better beer form that style to truly care about that one.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a very deep red with a foamy light tan head. Nice malty aroma with some light flowery hops. Nice sweet malt flavor with some hops bitterness. The 7% ABV is well hidden. Very enjoyable beer.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2005
on tap at greylodge - dark dark red color - like burnt copper. aroma is all malt - no discernable hop aroma. flavor is big and thick, but not syrupy or sickly sweet. mostly malt with caramel flavors. enjoyable, but one was enough for me.
