worldbeertaste (1800) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2012 Bottle - Brownish red opaque with an average off white head. Strong malt with overrip fruit smell with a light roast and alcohol, A little too strong, almost rotten. Leather medium oily body, rough. Taste of brown chewy bread, caramel, malt and alcohol with some red overrip fruit. Bitter-sweet with a strong alcohol bitter finish, but smooth. It would be better if the ABV wasnt so high.

Had it on cask at Wetherspoons in Manchester (Seven Stars), decent ale, a beautiful red colour to it. Nice malty taste, fine finish, a good beer.

drpimento (3369) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Pretty good brew. I let the bottle warm up a bit out of the fridge first. Poured an average sized, light tan head that settled down quick and a little lace. Color is a clear red amber with plenty of active bubble trails. Aroma is malty, toffee, caramel, some milder dark ripe fruits, a little hop. Flavors almost exactly the same with some bittersweet flavors coming out. Good body and carbonation. Finish is like flavor and is extended. Session beer.
