A beer I liked years ago that is now back on the market in my area. Hard one to describe. Little carbonation. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head (reminds me of a head of a root beer float), There is a fruity taste, but more like raisins. I get a burnt malt taste to it too,Other flavors I can’t pick out. Drinking solo, it wasn’t as good as I remembered, but I know I will have some more with a nice venison steak tonight.
***Rerated: Second beer drank at warmer temperature. Sweetness came out a bit more. Flavor improved.******
Dark beer, low carbonation, small stable beige head, aromas mainly caramel ones, however there are some barnyard ones, once is tried it is medium bodied, with a thick texture and good roast cereal flavours, the overall balance is good, but the aftertaste is rather simple, without any specific characteristics to remember. kalkone (23) - BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2017
Elle possède des arômes de molasse, malt et caramel. La bière est plus moins sucré. colui72 (1028) - HONG KONG - JUN 10, 2017
Pours translucent brown, with a medium beige head. Not much lacing. Aroma of sweet malts and molasses. Tastes of roasted sweet malts, molasses, caramel. Quite sweet beer, medium body, slick feel, soft carbonation, long finish. Good classic. robinshute123 (34) - Torquay, Devon, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2017

From old tasting notes. Brown color, nearly opaque. Tan head. Strong molasses-like aroma with sweet malty overtones. Sweet malt flavor is subdued yet interesting. Slightly sweet malty finish is brief but tasty. Good malty brew with substantial body. Luneylane (193) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - MAY 29, 2017
A bottle from Padstow Tesco. Aroma: bread, leaves, slightly sour. Appearance: clear, the darkest dark brown, minimal tan head. Palate: medium-bodied and creamy, soft carbonation, complex, predominantly sweet finish. Taste: medium sweet, tasty malt flavours. Good beer, though I would like it more if it were less sweet, with a higher ABV. coil (49) - - MAY 25, 2017
500ml bottle. Sweet and hoppy start with bitter finish. Raisins, dried fruits, berries, malt. mviljamaa (179) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2017
Pours with little to no head. Color is Coca-Cola. It really looks like coke. Gentle aroma has the Coca-Cola aroma, a very faint roasted malt and burnt notes, aroma of an old cellar. Even palate is Coca-Cola like with lesser carbonation. Taste has burnt notes and some dark malty taste, faint Coca-Cola taste, cold cellar like notes, bitterness from hops leaves the mouth a bit dry. Very refreshing, excellent that it combines the sensation of drinking Coca-Cola and beer. Not too rich, but not watery either. An excellent and interesting beer. thepatrickman (1347) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2017
This was my first legal pint I had when I turned 18, but I only came back to it this year. It’s held up really well, even after years of hurting my taste buds with IPAs and imperial stouts. There’s a great malt flavor, with a darker color and a richer, sweeter flavor than a standard bitter. The hop profile is earthy, giving it some spicy notes that work with the malt sweetness. Good stuff.
