Absolutely solid performer. Almost a Stout beer - and definitely full of malts. I love this beer, the strength almot undiscernible due to the quality of flavours..

Strong and well balanced. A glorious example of the most traditional English ales!

MiP (16054) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2008
Bottle, 7.6%. Peppery and creamy aroma. Very dark brown colour, clear and with a chestnut shine. Good sweet flavour, quite peppery, quite malty. Very nice and actually well-balanced in spite of the strength.

richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2012
Aroma is malty with a hint of tart cherry and a bunch of dark fruit. Fig and raisin perhaps. There is a touch of warming alcohol as well. Head disappeared very fast. The combination of taste and aroma is great, the aroma is backed by chocolate and sweetness balanced with a touch of clean bitterness. Palette is viscous and almost chewy Over all this is a great beer, I wish it was easier to get hold of.

Appearance: Clear dark brown wit ruby highlights and cm thick ivory head which was quick to disappear. Aroma: Raisin, caramel/toffee, bread, liquorice, slightly vinous, stewed fruit/fruit cake. Taste: Medium sweetness, low/medium bitterness and low sourness. Palate: Thick smooth texture, light/medium body, average carbonation, lingering dry, dried fruit, caramel, sweet but slightly bitter finish with subtle alcohol warmth. Comments: Very good. This rating is for the 7.4% ABV bottled version.

Intensely rich. Very nice beer. Fruity and strong flavour. Not much alcohol. Very tastey indeed. Lovely mouth feel.
