Pours a reddish-brown color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is heavily oak and sherry. Taste is lightly sweet, with plenty of sherry overtones. Surprisingly balanced and very interesting. stobbe74 (3790) - DENMARK - JUL 4, 2010

Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma is caramel, raisin , plum, light alcohol, light dust, light basement. Flavour is caramel, alcohol, raisin, plum and peach. JorisPPattyn (10072) - BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2010
Marks for Appearance are an average, as beer was sampled in weak artificial light after dark. Alcohol, faintly spicy nose with caramel malts showing, and oranges. Sweet, worts-like, but with a punch of alcohol behing, pineapple ester and other fruity notes. Pretty sharp MF, alcoholpunch and -warming. Unbelievably alcoholic (both technically as in character) for a British ale. Like a smooth punch in the gut. Yet well-worth looking for, if you can still find it.
