Part brown ale, part barley wine, very well made, smooth , crisp, a real joy. Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2003
This beer poured a dark amber color and formed an off white bubbly head that left some circular lace. Some carbonation present. An aroma of malt and caramel. A flavor of malt and caramel. Some dry elements in the finish. A good beer lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Pours dark amber with short-lived frothy white head. Nice complex aroma: nutty, maple, brown sugar, some spice, some astringency. Flavor starts slightly acidic and hoppy, but dulls with the emergence of sweet and bready malts and hints of banana and pear. Palate is medium bodied and moderately fizzy. Tastes more like a hybrid between a Scotch and a Belgian than a straight Scotch ale; nonetheless, its a good beer. Boxereddy (479) - BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2015

Bottle. Dark red brown with big lasting head. Fruit and some roasted malt. Carbonation. Slight bitter finish. Not much alcohol in taste despite being quite strong. winkle (478) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2008
Bottled: Had this a bit late in the evening to rate properly. Nice sweet fruity aroma, deep brown with a quickly vanishing head. Malty, brown sugary notes along with raisins and hints of plums/prunes. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. Initially seemed overly sweet but became enjoyable. Alcohol is not very evident.

Tap. Brown, somewhat cloudy. Aroma is suble and dry. Has some nice basement action going on, along with some grass. Flavor is malty and delicious, with some spices and dark fruits present. Yum yum. chicagobears (474) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Dark brown, tall head, shrinks down quickly.
Zesty, orange peal, leaves a grassy trace long after. Small tornado beads appeared near the end of the glass. Dry and earthy finish. Quite splendid.
