duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2002
Sweet, oaty start, dry-ish hoppyness towards the finish, some light peaty and smokey flavours, and a bit of oak, some mollasses in there aswell, not real elegant, but not too bad either. Not overly complex, but it occasionally surprised me on the odd sip.

skortila (5473) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2004
Aroma of caramel malts and raisins. Not too good.. Hazy, brown coloured with a thin, lasting brownish head. Taste is sweet-caramel, malty, sugar and fruits. More bitterness towards the finish. Smooth palate. Quite okay. Typical english ale.

Cybercat (5343) - Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Pours opaque chestnut with a fair buff head. Malty and fruity aroma invites a taste. Fruity, malty, caramel flavor is quite pleasing. Mouthfeel presents firm body and good fizz. Rodger dodger, a good one.

Since I’m stuck on this ferry for the next 5 hours might as well rate stuff I normally wouldn’t even consider round these parts. Cola body, medium tan head. Fruity, slightly soapy malty nose, nice really. Slightly polleny and candyish. Light dull malty taste, the nice fruity (vague strawberry jam?) soapiness shows up again but the palate is thin and dry. Some light alcohol pops up... To be continued as it warms... Umm yeah. The tartness gets stronger and the alcohol too, though not terribly so. Gets slightly salty though. Dunno, hardly exciting but one can do far worse.

Bottle.Dark and fruity with a strong presence of alcohol. Rich and fruity this is certainly an excellent winter warmer.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2005
Reddish with a small tan head. Aroma has some sweetness from dark berries. Dark fruit sweet flavor with a light caramel note, very sweet finish.

Cask conditioned at Charlies. Dark reddish brown coloured. Aroma of malt, toffee and molasses with a fruity touch. Sweet and malty flavour with notesof dades and plums and caramel. Rather full bodied and warming.

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 27, 2008
0.5 l bottle. Mahagony color with small head. Thick aroma with toffee, raisins and prunes. Sweet worty flavor with dark fruits and chocolate. Chewy mouthfeel. So far the only beer from Marstons which I like.
