(Draught) Poured dark brown and almost clear with medium sized and white head. Aroma was of malts and liquorice. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Tasted of malts, liquorice, sweetness, hops, lightly fruity and bitter. Sweet, malty and lightly bitter aftertaste.

AirForceHops (6952) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Multiple samples @ Empire Brew Fest. Garnet color with huge head and decent foamy retention. Nose of caramel, toffee and light chocolate notes. Flavor is toasted grain, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, light dark fruit, mild hop bitterness on the finish with only a hint of alcohol. Full body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long bitter finish. Very nice brew.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2004
Bottle pours dark brown, very caramel like in its hues, small white film of a head, fairly attractive lacing, with light carbonation. Slight roasty, light chocolate malt like aroma. A bit of alcohol and maple flavored bacon as well. Some hops, some malts, slightly chalky on zee tongue. Light body, somewhat thin mouthfeel. Finishes with a bland bitterness, slightly malty. This one doesnt fit the bill as an English Strong Ale. Thanks goes out to jah noth for the trade!

Braudog (6580) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Dark reddish black color. First description: Wow. Full of licorice and brown sugar, with an almost corn syrupy backdrop. But its thick like oil almost and definitely strong. (#5821, 10/10/2014)

kramer (6576) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2005
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.

HogTownHarry (6563) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2005
Bottle (12oz). Poured dark clear mahogany with a small off-white head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt, tart berry fruit and a hint of mustiness. Fair hit of alcohol off the top, then the sweet light roast malt enters, balanced by fruit, average somewhat bitter linger. Very pleasant - average body, a little flat but I guess thats the style.
