UPDATED: FEB 1, 2018 Bottle. Nice clear amber colour, small head. Aroma is alcohol, caramel, dried fruit. Medium body, soft carbonation. So much alcohol, for heaven's sake! Nope. W42ren (10) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2018
A christmas gift,I can taste the sherry oxidised flavour from the barrel aged beer, which makes it interesting.Its got a brandy taste, quite sweet and alcohol for a strong ale , if this was Belgian i would guess it was 8-10%
Rich fruit cake , christmas puddding with brandy, resin note , alcohol, rich bannoffe , alcohol, earthy, leather, caramel, malt loaf, hint of funky sherry, Oak is subtle definite woody not tannin not really oak - more like aged rum flavour. p0urmeac0ld0ne (499) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - JAN 3, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 Decent variation on the classic, although not my favourite in the range. I find it too harshly bitter, but in the way that the bite is quite nasty, rather than hoppy bitterness. That aside, I’m a moany git and it is thoroughly enjoyable. That being said, give me an Old Speckled any day! Haha! explosivedog (1999) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 28, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours red brown. Caramel, strawberry, orange, cherry, biscuit, few British ale yeast esters, a nice oakiness. Not too carbonated. Pretty yum. Hopverdju (1764) - BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2017

Smashing strong ale. Has a similar strong taste as Innis and Gunn but a little more malty and less whisky notes. Nice dark ale. ianwelby (1616) - SCOTLAND - OCT 24, 2017
Clear amber, thin bubbly head. Fruity, alcoholic aroma with a touch of caramel. Taste has caramel, dried fruit, rich malt. It's quite smooth despite it tasting as strong as it is. Decent. Erzengel (10018) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2017
The beer starts mild and smooth. Easy to drink with hints of dry raisins and caramel. Smooth mild, malty with a nice bitter-sweetish rich finish. Grumbo (4742) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2017
