0.33 l bottle. Pours deep brown with beige head. Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, fruity and alcoholic notes in aroma. Coffee, roasted malts, chocolate and even some hops in taste with long, coffeeish finish and warm mouthfeel. Medium bodied, softly carbonated. Nice. ipabr (214) - Somerset, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2016
Ear wax, liquorice and malty doormat. I like cats but think old tom has been adding his own flavour to his territory/brewery. Not my thing dutchbeerpages (2439) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2016
has all the usual flavors you expect from a beer like this, but they all work. Great palate, some great sweetness too. Wonderful. Antzrhere (181) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2016
Pours dark brown with red tinge. Little or no head. Strong aroma of dark fruit and port. Taste is intense malty, sweet dark fruits, licorice, spice, caramel and port like finish. The alcohol amd sweetness make this a great winter warmer, but balanced. A great example a strong English ale. TychoJames (1281) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2016

Luneylane (172) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - OCT 7, 2016
A bottle from Jason’s near NCC Uni., drunk at home. Aroma: very powerful, filled the room [well, nearly...]. Vinous, port wine. Appearance: clear, very dark ruby, tan head dissipates quickly. Palate: full-bodied, long finish. Mouth-feel is flat. Taste: port wine predominates, very fruity, alcohol is well-hidden. Well-balanced, but I would have liked more hops. Alebarasi (102) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - OCT 4, 2016
Black, cola-like color. Slight ruby hue to it. Medium cream-colored head. Quick carbonation. Light body and lacing. Sweet wet wood/earthy aroma, with hints of sweet caramel, molasses, dark fruit (plums), cola and roast. Taste: intense and strong earthy, nutty, bready aroma, with dark fruits cueing the palate. Very smooth with dense malts. Warming aftertaste gives it a character. Delicious beer indeed! Parogolima (11) - - SEP 30, 2016
