12 oz. Pours black with dark red highlights. Small-ish white head. Smells like London. Tastes like London. Really like the complexity of flavors. More depth than most. Im really surprised that this beer came from a semi-local brewery. Will enjoy again!

Bottle. Dark ruddy brown thin head. Malty but a bit too bitter for my taste. Some bready and caramel notes. Ok but not amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown pour with a dense, foamy head. Big time roasted malt aromas and some earthy hops. Flavor is straight-forward malty sweetness. For a strong ale this is quite weak but overall its highly drinkable.

Picked up a 6 pack at a local beer distributor. Almost like a lightweight stout, this beer has a deep chocolaty smokey flavor. Goes down effortlessly with little to no aftertaste. A unique and delicious beer.

Draft. 7% ABV was kicking. A deep garnet red in color with a hint of fruit, wine like. Very nice. Warm taste,

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.

Dark brown with reddish/amber hues and a small tan head that quickly dissipates. Faint aroma of roasted malt. Medium bodied with good mix of chocolate and roasted malt nuttiness. Underlying hop flavors are also apparent. This one was a nice surprise.

matty (399) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep ruby red/brown color with a slightly off white head that settles to a film. Aroma is mostly malt, roasted malt/burnt caramel, some alcohol and a touch of hops. Taste carries some of the caramel/malt aroma with it. I get a little bit of a roasted malt taste as well. I think it could use a bit more body to it, it seems a little watery. Finish carries more of a pronounced roastedness to it.
