Cask Handpump at the Well House Tavern, Exeter 17/06/2003
Amber golden coloured and strong in alcohol. Lasting malt finish. JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2006
Bottle. Amber coloured with a slim off-white head. No sign of sediment. Aroma of vanilla and caramel with some chocolate notes. Flavours are malty and sweetish; some butterscotch and a nice hoppy finish. Medium to full bodied, very drinkable - I can’t leave it alone! Very good strong ale (strong ale is what it says on the label). MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2005
A Mes rate:
50cl bottle from Waitrose. Yum. This is really quite good. Butterscotch and sticky toffee with a hint of vanilla and then some hops in the nose. Very brown coloured body with just a wisp of an off white head which leaves a little lacing. Gentle and sweet malts with some caramel and a very pleasant hoppy finish with just a lick of alchohol and gradually growing sweeter as it lingers. Very nice indeed. The more I drink of this the better it gets. Had to get this rate in quick as this stuff is a sinker. Very pleasantly surprised. CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2005
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Not obviously bottle conditioned, I couldn’t see sediment, but no obvious pasteurisation notes either. Dark amberwith dissipating head. Aroma of caramel, orangey hop, liquorice. Good body, complex finish with hop and liquopricy, choclatey malt.

Cask at The Royal Oak, Lyndhurst-Bank : Amber coloured, nearly no head; vinous fruity nose, some traces of liquorice and alcohol; sweetish-fruity start; sweetish flavour; ending in a bitter-aromatic and sweet finish; a warming, pretty full-bodied and well-rounded brew !
