Bottle. Dark brown, some ruby red hues; almost purplish. Beige head fizzles away quickly. Nose is barley, booze, and berries; port as it warms. Taste is berries, alcohol, fresh water, port, and cough syrup. The hop finish is very light and overshadowed by a sweet syrup taste. Medium mouthfeel. Could benefit from a little more body.

Bottle. Red-brown with a beige collapsing head. Chewy sweet maltiness, dark fruits, raisins, finish keeps some balance. Low carbonation making it slightly watery.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2005
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.

GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2006
[Bottle from BeersofEurope] Big malty aroma, raisins, orange peel, spicey, alcohol. well bodied but feels a little vacuous and the palate is marred by some tinny notes.

mikkopen (1106) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2008
500 ml bottle. Colour dark reddish brown with a thin head. Aroma is rather sweet, with raisins and plumes. The taste is sweet and fruity, caramel-like. Leaves a nice warm feeling in the mouth after swallowing. Some more hoppy bitterness would have been nice, to balance the sweetness, but, all in all, a very tasty and enjoyable ale.
