Strange name. Different label on the bottle I had. Heavy indeed, and an flavor teetering off vanilla. Still a rich experience, but dont have too many or theyll go to yer head.

12 oz bottle. Pours into pint glass with an average head, fizzy and off-white. Body is clear and brownish ruby colored. Aroma is pleasing with some floral hop notes. The flavor is good malty with a decent hop finish. Largest problem is the mouthfeel for me, kind of fizzy and thin. Surprised to learn this is 7%, wouldnt have guessed over 5%. In all a decent beer but isnt something to expend alot of effort to track down.

Had at the Rohrbachs summer beer fest. Looking at this one I was preparing to be wowed. Dark red color, decent tan head. Hoppy body even considering the sweet maltiness. Unfortunately it was the final beer I sampled - will have to try again when the taste buds are fresher.

Deep amber hazy body over a creamy head; sweet and spicy aroma; rich and malty front end with toasted english muffin notes; somewhat dry finish, and pretty well balanced; pretty nice, overall.

HBF 2005. I was surprised by how much I liked this beer. Im usually not into english strong ales, but this one was really good. Deep amber/mahagony with a slight lasting light beige head. Aroma is loaded with sweet caramel malts and balanced by a nice herbal/earthy hop presence. SOme fruity hints as well. Flavor is toffee, crystal malts, and some fruit with a good hop balance. Slightly bitter finish balances some of the sweetness. Very nice.

this ones like a lite version of a fullers 1845. well, sorta. the color is deep chestnut/midnight ruby, and slightly murky. the head is tall foamy tan but goes quickly. the aroma is earthy bitter malt, a little bitter chocolate and roasted chestnut skins too. flavor is also earthy malt, roasted and bitter too. bitter hops in the finish, yes like root vegetables.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2005 Bottle from Premier - thanks to rudolf. Very nice dark ruby-brown colour with a small tan head. Aroma is a little subdued at first, but starts to develop a nice roasty/malty character with some smoky notes. Very well rounded flavour, with brown sugar, roasted nuts and cocoa, evenly balanced by an expertly hopped finish. So smoothly balanced and easy to drink that I cant believe its 7%. Well done.

Fairly decent ale. Taste is slightly nutty with strong malt backbone. Drinkable, and actually surprised to see this wasnt around 5% abv. Id try this again.

Really impressed with this malty English Ale. Nice amber color with a full, malty aroma. The hops give it a nice presence in the mouth, but this beer isnt all about the hops. The quality malts are what really deliver this beer. They blend so well with the alcohol that you really dont notice its a 7%er. I cant recommend this enough.
