weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle. The colour of Hugh Heffners dressing gown, head went very quick. Alcohol hidden quite well and made for a quite drinkable ale. Nice enough, better than most Marstons imo. Cheers.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2015 Rubin red and brown in colour. On the nose develop aromas of roasted malts, caramel and chocolate. Small fast fading toast coloured head. Bit fizzy, medium-full body. Medium sweet with a touch of bitterness. Finish is dry and nice.

prawlie (1546) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2015
Bottle from Londis. Sort of an English bock. Quite nice but it lacks the complexity of something like Weltenburger Kloster Asam Bock.

flying_pig (1508) - SCOTLAND - AUG 3, 2011
Bottle (500ml):
A really strong smell of alcohol straight away. The main aroma is a sweet smelling with some hints of toffee. Vague hints of licorice & chocolate malts are hinted at but are barely noticable due to the alcohol.
Dark, nutty brown colour from the bottle & forms a bubbly, brownish-white head that is about two fingers width high but disappears instantly.
Taste mirrors smell very closely giving a strong alcohol flavour. Itís very rich & sweet with toffee & caramel notes that are mixed in to the taste but again the alcohol is too great.
Medium bodied & quite fizzy on the palate with a slightly warm feel to it that is about its only saving grace. The texture is a chewy one & overall the feel is not great.

Quite a disappointing beer overall with a huge alcohol prescene in the taste as well as the smell that makes it a hard drink to swallow. Certainly not a beer Iíll be drinking again.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2005
Complex strong English ale. Poured a chocolate colour with plummy tints and an excellent frothing head. The nose has licorice, chocolate, spices and some peppery alcohol. Big alcoholic body. Port-like in intensity and satisfyingly bitter with some stoutish dryness in the finish. (Bottle)

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 6, 2008
Flat looking medium brown hue with a thin island of creamy, tan foam. Chocolate and toffee arrive first in the aroma, which is somewhat mild overall. Honey on buttered, toasted bread follows with cherries and prunes. Peppery, floral hops and light minerals combine in semi-sharp note, well out-done by the sweet side of things. Slight tint of cola / liquorice. The flavour starts fairly sweet, a little cocoa and caramel; washes through dark fruits at mid-palate; and culminates in a woody, floral, off-dry finish. Slim aftertaste of dried cherries. Not quite full bodied, with an oily texture and soft, yet bristly, carbonation. With warmth, the dark fruits come to life and a bit of alcohol leaves the mouth with a dry, red wine sensation. An enjoyable and interesting sipper with no big minuses except for price.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Bottle, Dodgy Deli, Cowly Rd. Dark ruby with a small cap of dense light tan. Suede leather, minty sweetness, green hay. Burnt caramel, touch of chocolate and mint, musky attic notes. Rather sweet, but the roast and fairly bright carbonation provide balance. Pretty decent, though a by the half-pint mark its a bit tiring.
