Appearance-light copper brown with disappearing golden foam, aromas- sweet malt, dates, and caramelised chestnuts (marrons Glacés). Palate- medium to full bodied, quite flat and quite sticky and oily in texture. Taste- malt, simple, dissapointing. Overall- great aromas but somewhat lacking in palate and flavour. prawlie (1611) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2016
From the cask at Reading Beer Festival 2016. Complex, malty and clean, and tasty and well rounded beer. Otter have gone up in my estimation. MarcinG (901) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2016

Aroma: caramel, bread malts, grain. Appearance: clear amber, small, off-white, frothy head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: malts continue and remain very dominant, some unspecified fruitiness coming up, soft carbonation. Overall: very nice aroma, bit weak palate, but overall OK English "Strong" Ale. Bottle from Waitrose, Exter.

Chelmsford Summer Beer Fest. Cask. Light haze on this deep amber beer. Residual bubbly pale tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Mild fine carbonation. Rich malts but not heavy. Good semi sweet dark toffee. Ripe fruits blend well with the toffee. Traces of hard candy fruits and sweet esters. Toucb of floralness. Light finish. Dark toffee lingers on. Good stuff.
Bottle. Bright amber with a cream head. Sweet and fruity with some pear drop notes. A somewhat bitter finish. Full flavoured and good. BlackHaddock (7404) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Half-pint at the 2014 Lincoln Beer Festival. Good looking dark, deep brown beer with a full white crown on top. Malty from the start, this is a fruity, wholesome brew that oozes flavour. The hops keep the maltiness in check to produce a lovely blend that is easy to drink, mildly bitter towards the finish. Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
