From 500ml bottle. Strong sweet chocolate scent. Taste is roast caramel and slightly bitter. Not bad. Not impressive.

paulvanpelt (665) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2017 Donker, bijna zwart bier met nauwelijks een schuimkraag. Aroma van mout, karamel, toffee, koffie. Zoete mouten en een licht koffiezuurtje. Waterig en vlak, weinig body. Mwah.

God og spændende øl. Dejlig på en kold eftermiddag. Gog fylde og fin eftersmag

Davros IX (517) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2017
Bottle at home as a take-out from The Old Jerusalem Tavern. A lovely mahogany pour into the tankard with a respectable head. The nose was a gentle molasses and malt and both were clearly evident in the flavour. There was some balancing bitterness against that molasses, but there wasn't much else to the flavour profile. If anything I would say that the flavour was quite short. The mouthfeel was enhanced by the bite of the alcohol, but at the end of the pint I have to say that I was underwhelmed.

let brændt smag, og en humle der næsten ikke er der. Der er dog en hvis humle i eftersmagen efter et stykke tid

Perfect for the holiday period. Nice touch, worth trying. Felt like I was in London.

Bottle at Jerusalem Tavern in London. Dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is malty, caramel, toffee, spice. Flavor is sweet, spiced, cinnamon, nutmeg, only slight bitterness. Medium plus bodied, slick. Pretty good.

3.3
thellgren (1143) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2017
0.5 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Appearance is dark ruby (black). Aroma is cognac with spices. Taste is like Irish dry stout with roasted malts, but this is supposed to have lots of hops. There is also some sweetness from the malts or alcohol. My flask didn’t seem to be well balanced at all - too much bitterness.

Towey1989 (3324) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Bottle. Pours a deep brown colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of burnt toffee, dark fruit, red berries, slight brown sugar, a little cola, subtle liquorice and some spicy hops. Taste of burnt toffee, dark fruit, red berries, some cola, a little brown sugar, a hint of liquorice, leather and slight spicy hops. Medium bodied and a slight oily texture. A bittersweet, fruity, spicy bitterness in the finish. A decent old ale, lots of spicy fruit in this balanced quite well with burnt toffee and subtle hoppiness.

Bottle. Dark Brown in colour. Very roasted malts; burnt toffee & buttery caramel. Very chocolatey, some coffee. Fruit (berries) & spice. Nice malt/hop balance. Sweet with mild bitter edge. Slightly burnt taste. Roasted finish. Very drinkable. Nice winter ale! (2008)
