Dark ruby red ,wonderful colour, it has relatively high fizz for its strength, but quickly gives way to a warming deep steeped fruitiness with a slight bitterness to finish. Nice ale

Lethal. Pours as dark as expected. Complex aromas of treacle, oats and even some tar. Tastes of molasses and oats again. Everything I’d expect of something labelled a ’country ale’, just a shame that having one than two over a normal session would be headache-fodder!

Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2003
The beer gives you the initial nose of raisins and plums. The colour is that welcoming deep coppery claret with a good creamy head. This is a big bitter beer with a good chewy date flavour.

Bottled (BB 10/2005)
Dark red ruby, steady brown creamy head. Nose is chocolaty barley, very Jacobite Ale -like. Medium to full bodied, typical Old Ale: toffeeish, barley flavor, some roast and alcoholic touch. Well-balanced.

mikkopen (1164) - 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.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2008

jmgreenuk (9444) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle from one of the supermarkets. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin frothy tan head. The aroma is big roast and a hint of yeast with some burnt treacle. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth liqourice, slightly alcoholic palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a long bitter finish. This was a lovely heart-warming beer and perhaps one of the best I’ve ever had from Marstons.
