Liquid campfire. Pours a translucent copper/bronze...taste is of caramel and toasted oak...smooth, complex, toasty, creamy, semisweet. Wish I had another right now. scotty (1232) - SCOTLAND - NOV 29, 2009
Lovely burnt amber colour, remarkable nose of fruit and soft caramel, brilliant! Smooth and superbly balanced palate, malt and hops in near perfect harmony. The 6.5% is superbly disguised until after a few satisfying mouthfuls that familiar hits the grey matter. This is crackin’ stuff, get some in for Xmas! I_LUV_BEER (232) - - SEP 3, 2016
Served in a Teku glass from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear orange-red amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma is toffee and caramel, some grassy notes, red fruit, banana esters. Taste is a complex combination of toffee, raisins, malts, biscuit and a hint of red berries. Bitter-sweet with subtle bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very fine, highly enjoyable and very well crafted ale! kvnstfrd (34) - Branson, Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Appearance: Pours a dark, amber color with a frothy, long-lasting head with plenty of lacing.
Aroma: Raisins, spicy hops and cereal grains with a woody aroma.
Taste: Initial taste is brandy-like with dark fruits, oak and a subtle taste of liquorice while on the palate. Aftertaste is a perfect blend of sweet, dark fruit flavors and a dry bitter. Mouth-feel is medium with almost no detectable carbonation. A smooth and buttery swallow.
This is a difficult-to-find brew that I’ve been hunting for 3 or 4 years. I am happy to report that it has been well worth the hunt and the wait. This one just might make it into my top-10 list! Grzesiek79 (4481) - Radom, POLAND - APR 19, 2014
Dobre piwo w elegandzkiej butelce. Vintage Ale ale nie podany jest rocznik. W zapachu morele suszone i daktyle. W smaku takze wyczuwa sie te suszki i do tego dochodzi drewno wilgotne i stechle. W zapachu wilgotny material jakby nasaczony rumem. Lekka nuta alkoholowa w koncowce.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2015 Lovely aroma. Raisin flavour. Amber appearance. Great strength and aftertaste. Nice level of bitterness. kaziopiwosz (424) - Warszawa / Wałbrzych, POLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Tastes honey with sharp hoppy background. Delicate caramel nutes. Long, bitter finish. White head stays long on the top. Copper colour. NotABeerFan (44) - GLASGOW, SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 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.
