500ml bottle from Asda. Pours quite a red brown with a small off white head. Aroma of dried fruit, with malt and hints of citrus. Sweet initially, with a little bitterness, flavors of malt, dried fruit, hops and warm spices. MarcinG (946) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2016
Ciemny herbaciany kolor o lekko palonej obfitej pianie. Aromat cytrusow chmielu i ciastek. W smaku mozna jeszcze dodac orzechy i niezly slodko gorzki posmak. Niezle i bardzo "pijalne". SkillsFactory (738) - ITALY - OCT 2, 2015
Ambrata limpida con riflessi color caramello, schiuma nocciola di buona persistenza.
Aroma di uva passa, prugna, caramello, tostato.
Al palato malti tostati, caramello, finale tra l'amaro erbaceo e il fruttato dell'uvetta.
Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata.

Dark amber with creamy head and soft carbonation. Earthy, hoppy nose with a hint of coffee. Taste is earth, biscuit, toffee, hay and a gentle bitter finish. Smooth palate, nice beer.gegwilson (3754) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015

Bottle from Morrisons. Pours with a light layer of off white froth. The taste is light peppery spice with some caramel and stewed fruit flavour. Some aniseed and a touch of metal too. OK. Cunningham (8177) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2014
Lovely looking ale. Clear nutty golden color with a thick fine head. Nice lacing. Nice aroma. Some spices and balanced fruity aroma. Medium body. Fine balance between sweetness and bitterness. Average carbonation. Fruity, malty, raisins and some toffee. Decent ale.StueyD (1586) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2014
[Bottle from a trade with McTapps]
A reddish brown coloured beer with a thickish off white head. A light hoppy aroma to start, then a mild caramel maltiness. Medium-dry mouthfeel. A citrusy hop taste, with a hint of grassiness is followed by a biscuity malt flavour that bring forward caramel and a hint of spice. The finish is malt led with a background citrus hoppiness.

Wonderful piwo shared with McTapps. This one is classy thanks to its malty and fruity aromas containing some raisins, grapes and nuts. Sweetish moments combined with a balanced mediumbitter ending make that one a highly drinkable beer. Liked it a lot.
