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 itís style.

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.

Wow this hurts your head cos you donít realise the percentage, the taste is sweet but expected because of the high alcohol, very dark and fruity, a really great strong ale.

Cask @ Charlieís 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.

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.

Cask. Good head and sits nicely in the glass. Flavour starts well, with a lot of spicy fruit, but is a little too soupy, and lingers with a sharp and cloying alcohol on the back of the tongue. Classic good start, bad finish.

Maybe the taste of plums, raisins, prunes and other dark fruits is just meant to become more pleasant as one grows older. I certainly like it in beer, which makes me quite positive about this beer. Although it is on the light side in the dark fruit department, it still makes up for a good beer Itís supplement of nice malty tones combined with itís taste of Grandma, makes me consider buying a vintage Ford A and go off on a voyage to the "old" days (and Iím only 30?!)
