spporras (259) - FINLAND - MAY 27, 2006
(Bottle BB 31/01/07) Aroma of roasted malt and caramel with a hint of oak wood. Red brown colour, slightly sparkling and small, light brown, mostly diminishing head with very small lacing. Sweet caramel, roasted malty and slightly bitter (especially in the finish) flavour. Softly carbonated, dry, slightly sticky, warming (alcohol does not taste) and medium to full-bodied palate. Very good strong ale! 26/05/06

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2006
A Mes rate: Sweet wine like aroma. Wonderful mahogany appearance with a reasonably well behaved head. Sweet sugary flavour that is not particularly balanced or refined. Alcohol is all too apparent. Strange full yet thin palate that ends up on the thin side. Sweet and cloying finish. Not too impressive.

Bottle.
Pours a cola / dark ruby color, with a generous, beige bubbly head.
Dryish malty aroma, with a hint of hops and barnyardiness. Seemed faintly metallic as well, but perhaps I was hallucinating.
Semisweet, fruity malt and alcohol flavor. Sweet alcohol and caramel finish with a slightly bitter hoppy aftertaste.
Very smooth and well balanced. Medium body. Surprisingly delicious.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2017 Bottle picked by dad from Home Bargains, Alfreton, cheers dad. Consumed at home Monday 25th December 2017. I think that this is due a re-rate, it's been 11years since I last rated and probably not far off of that since I lasting had it which was probably many years ago. Lots of toffee, chewy but with a good malty sweetness throughout. Dark brown with a ruby glint, drinks very easy. Some dark sugars, a little fruity linger. Far better than my old rating suggests A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.5

Old Rating from 2006 Another beer that I used to drink regularly when living in Worcester friends in my local often used to ask for a Pedirog basically half and half of Pedigree and Owd Roger I think this was owing to the strength of drinking a whole pint of the Owd Roger. A very dark red coloured ale nice toffee sweetness, very full bodied but the alcohol just lingers a tad too much though to be a classic of it’s style.A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov11 3.0

Bottle.Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Dark red brown colour. Wonderfull berr to look at. Alas no aroma, but powerfull taste of licorice. Fantastic long finish. Oily palate but too carbonated.

iammadeofjelly (194) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2005
Wow this hurts your head cos you don’t realise the percentage, the taste is sweet but expected because of the high alcohol, very dark and fruity, a really great strong ale.

3.4
anders37 (27635) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2005
Cask @ Charlie’s Bar. Dark red colour. Malty aroma with hints of molasses and some fruitiness. Flavor is very malty and hints of caramel and dark fruits. The alcohol leaves you with a warming feeling. The finish is a little sweet.

3.4
Sobchak (131) - Skagen, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2005
(Cask, The Wharf, Aalborg) - Deep dark red colour. Malty, roasty molasses nose. The taste is warming, and packed with notes of caramel, chocolate, plums and alcohol, leading into a suprisingly dry aftertaste.

3.6
Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2005
Dark red color, little beige head. Chocolate, toffee, sweetness, mild alcohol in aroma. Medium to full bodied. Chocolate, toffee, nice caramel sweetness in flavor, ends with lasting medium alcohol and sweetness, aftertaste lasts.
