Awesome beer. Try this on a cold winters night to warm your cockels! Too many though and you’ll not be atnding up for long! jellyburd7 (2) - New York, USA - APR 6, 2009 does not count
Enjoyed from cask in a fantastic pub in Manchester. On a C.A.M.R.A. pubs tour with my brother, this beer is in my top-ten list. A deep red brown hue holds your gaze as you sip this well balanced concoction down. An excellent end to a night, this potent brew packs more of a punch than its 8.5% ABV boasts.

A beautiful dark british barley wine. In taste it can be variable but it always pleases. worldbeertaste (1818) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
This one is special. Dark chestnut brown with a red tin and a frothy thick, lasting head. Looks like a brandy. Smells of strong malt, caramel, berries and plum with no noticeable alcohol. Throat warmth, sticky medium body. Tastes of right roast, chocolate, nut and cherry with a strong bitter hop finish. Defiantly a fruit cake.Very rich and complex that would be gladly tasted again.

Cask at the White Horse, Parson’s Green, 28th Jan 2007. Very dark ruby appearance. Aroma is like sniffing a freshly baked rich fruit cake! The flavour is superb - rich and full, hints of grapes, blackcurrant, raspberries and more. The feel is slick and smooth, like a good barley wine. Superb stuff and better than the bottled version for sure.
