500ml bottle from Sainsbury. Attractive deep orange colour. Thin white head. Some GK yeast character on aroma, bit of cheese even. Then some spicy toffee also on the aroma. The Abbot Reserve I thought was better. But there is some interesting character there from the older ale used in this. That cheese for a start, but also a ton of malt character too. Settles down into a bit of a sipper to be honest. Just about the best GK beer I’ve had. Wow, this is half decent. Very drinkable and makes you want to go back to it. About the only GK beer I’d happily introduce other RBers to. Even thinking of taking it to LCRBM5. It’ll make up for the Mack beers I’m taking anyway. Any filtering or pasteurisation doesn’t affect it too much. Decent dessert/cheese beer. Would be good with a decent medium cheddar. Yes, it has done that hardest thing, it has won me round from my original scepticism and lack of interest in GK beers. Pretty good saxo (18302) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are caramel, malt, fruits, wood and hops. Oakes (17676) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2011
Dark copper colour. The aroma is medium caramel, light fruit and there’s a promise of some alcohol as well. Toasty, light chocolate and still more medium caramel, with quite a bit more malt nuance than the aroma promised. Ok for a macrobrew.

Keg at Black Door.
Deep clear copper color, small creamy off-white head. Nutty, toffee aroma. Perharps a bit buttery too. Medium-bodied. Sweetish nutty flavor. Light toffee and Earthy English hoppyness. Quite traditional English strong ale. chrisv10 (17435) - DENMARK - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle, 6.5%. Clear dark amber with small tan head. Aroma is malt, caramel, hop and fruit. Flavour is malt, oak, wood, caramel, hop, grass, little sweet and a little bitter. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 5, 2012
Bottle. It pours a clear, dark amber colored body and a finger-thick, off-white head. The aroma is lightly roasted and bready, some piney notes in the back. Caramel and some prunes too. Quite pleasant, in a nice way. A bit thin on the palate, soft carbonation. Dry. Roasted and caramel-ish flavor with a nice bitterness kicking in towards the end. A quite nice one, although a bit too British for my preferences. 120405 MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle, 6.5%. Malty and nutty aroma. Small stable white head. The flavour is nutty and chalky with some alcohol bitterness. It is as if there is a bit too much alcohol for the style, but it is a good beer nevertheless. Benzai (15608) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Nice dark orange to reddish color, decent sized off-white head. Aroma is malts, dried fruits, raisins. Tastes about the same: malts, raisins, dried fruits, slightly bitter. Medium body and carbonation.
