A reddish copper ale with a thick frothy mocha head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light fruity notes, faint molasses, alcohol warmth, not bad. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light grassy hops, so-so. On tap at brewery. jbruner (4747) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Pours a hazy brown from the bottle with fluffy tan head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma of sweet biscuit and caramel, hint of fruit and grass. Taste follows, almost like a scotch ale sweetness with a bit of boozy burn and hints of grass. Decent, dry finish. rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle from Moonspin. Deep amber pour with a bubbly tan head. Nutty, toffee and roasted aroma with light floral components. Flavor is similar with a dry nutty finish. Not bad. PorterPounder (7971) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Trade with drowland - thanks! Pours a hazy dark orange with a sticky khaki colored head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma has a soapy tint to it, a touch of smelly feet. Flavor is a tad better than the aroma with some orange marmalade notes, some caramel, a touch of booziness, a yeasty finish. thick enough mouthfeel. Needs some work.

Draft. Aroma is a sweet yeast with some Carmel malt. Appearance is a dark brown with some lacing. Taste is almost of a dark esb. Some sweetness is in there as well. Palate is pretty mild. Overall, a good beer. Would buy again.

A gift from a friend in AZ.
Poured into a pint glass being dark amber brown with a one inch tan head that laced nicely down the glass during consumption.
Strong malty sweetness of caramel & very light booze.
Definite dark fruity roasted toffee yet a dry finish of hops. Like the bitter end of this beverage. Balanced very well.
Overall this is a better than average English style pub beer. Would easily consume again. CasualApathy (6) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - AUG 10, 2013 does not count
Dark in color with a small light head. Pretty much smells like it tastes, sweet with hints of toffee and caramel corn. A bit too sweet for my tastes, but I wouldn’t say it’s a bad beer. dwyerpg (6188) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 28, 2013
AFter an Arizona trip filled with pale ales and IPAs and the standard brewery beers, this English Strong is quite a palate-attacking change. A sweet toffee and butterscotch aroma, with a brown color. This is sweet and toffee sticky and a tad lactic/milky. An okay beer, but perhaps would score higher if I hadn’t had so many hops already in my system. Quite a bit of butterscotch though. But there’s also some hops at the w2ay end of this. Really hard to get a handle on this beer. Westchesterco (2043) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2013
