RNDave (20) - Fillmore, California, USA - OCT 25, 2016
Fumemation is sweet with light hint liquorice, toffee, dark fruits. Smooth. Soft on the palate, finished like a quick goodbye. Overall decent malted soda pop with a slight kick. Id order again just not next week.

Rocket fuel. Barely capable of writing a review after drinking a pint of it. Strong taste of brandy perhaps. Cloudy - rich in taste. Worth experiencing

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2015
Cask at GBBF. Reddy orange, small off-white head. Aroma is sweet with toffee, raisin. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is big red berry, wholewheat bread malts, tangy booze - a bit hot with the 8.5% showing its presence. Quite nice, just a bit heavy-handed maybe.
