Bottle from Sainsburys. Amber colour, off-white head. Nose is malty, nutty, bit of brown sugar and molasses. Flavour is malty and nutty, slightly alcoholic. Slightly sweet and fruity strong ale. Medium bodied and alcoholic finish. I can see why people like this, but it’s not really to my liking. greenmanalishi (551) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2011

Bottle. Red to Brown. Lots of sweetness. A raisiny kind. Marauding alcohol flavour. Not very well balanced. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2011
Bottled. Deep amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is dried bananas, some bitter wood, mild spices, fruits and some mild herbal notes. Flavour is quite much thee same with some vanilla added. Sweet and rather strange.

Lovely dark brown with hints of red around the edges. Minimal head or carbonation. Aromas of banana, malt, treacle, Flavours of raisin, banana, malt. Some residual acohol flavour. Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a dark amber with a pillowy head. I really can’t fault the appearance; the head sticks around and spins a web of lace as the glass empties. Wow... a huge malty aroma that I can’t quite get on with. Smooth caramel taste that is particularly sweet. Lands somewhere between a bitter and a barley wine without ever quite making sense. Still, worth a try. omhper (25538) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2011
