Beatiful dark ruby beer, lots of malt, fruitiness, quite sweet, and I would have preferred more bitterness to balance this. But it’s not bad at all. berkshirejohn (6771) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2006
Bottle. The colour of treacle with a thick brown head, which settles but lasts. A sweet toffee nose, and a warm malty flavour makes this a beer to sip slowly. zvikar (6575) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - APR 20, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at DSG’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Pours brown clear with a beige head, aroma of bread, chocolate and toffee, flavor of caramel, malt liquor, sweet, light bodied MichaelAwesome (6546) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2013
Not a bad one but in the end it like a malt syrup with lots of sweetness, sugar and a decent end. Drinkable, warm but I would consider it a bit too thick. jaghana (6366) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle 50cl, a clear dark amber beer with low head. Nose is on caramel and metallic touch. Aroma is on toffee, caramel, carared malt, metallic notes, slightly spicy, toasted and light roasted notes at the finish. Body is slightly vinous and alcoholic with a bitter background.

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. Marko (6290) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 28, 2011
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. Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2005
Bottle. Red brown colour with a big baige head. Sweet caramel, dark fruity aroma and a very sweet caramel, dark fruity taste. Medium body and a very sweet finish. skortila (6014) - 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. SilkTork (5926) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2002
Not as famous nor as well balanced as Old Peculiar or Old Speckled Hen, this is none the less a decent quality old style beer.
