UPDATED: NOV 8, 2006 courtesy of oh6gdx - dark amber-brown colour with a little beige head; malty and fairly hoppy with rich fruity notes (cherry, litchi); smooth and initially quite sweet, late and decent bitterness; fruity finish with some residual sugars - character and balance

Bottle. [thank you, oh6gdx]
Pours deep nutty brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. Sweet malty aroma, some toffee, good roasted malts, some dried fruits and a touch of chocolate. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit roasted, some viniousness, lots of prunes and raisins. Medium sweetness, good dark roasted caramel. Fine beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark mahogany-red with a nice head. The aroma has notes of raisins and dark, ripe fruits. The flavour has notes of caramel, dark fruit, raisins and plum, port wine and the body is quite full. The alcohol is well hidden. In the finish I find caramel and weak hints of licorice.

Dark ruby and dangerous. Autumn fruits are to the fore and in the finish of this syrupy brew. A good Marstons beer.

Bit of warming yet subtle alcohol. 7+ Mildly alcoholic aroma, mdoest sweet malt, hints of caramel and toasty malt. 6+ Very smooth medium bodied palate is lightly carbonated. Surprisingly tasty, rich but straightforward for the most part. Bottle from The Grog Shop, Oxford

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
