(Cask) Dark clear brown with a nice moka head, slight malt aroma, which is more intennse and woody in the mouth. Restrained floral hops are dancing with the malts. Slight alcool warmth was detected. Good body. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 18, 2003

dark amber colour, few head, quite an unorthodox taste, cherry, sweet with some bitterness - strange but pleasant hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2006
341ml bottle acquired in trade with blankboy (thanks!). Poured a deeper reddish / brown with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toasted nuts, caramel and light chocolate. Tastes of toasted nuts, caramel, cocoa, and toffee. Thinner body. Sammy (12768) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2004 Balanced, satisfactory with food. Bit of bitterness works, bit of carbonation and head. Nice aroma and dark colour and brown bottle. Understated cocoa, coffee, nutty. Tea finish.
Also Had on tap and much smoother, even some hops. jercraigs (10886) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2005 Re-rate Draft. Dark ruby amber, small beige head. Sweet malty aroma with muted roast and nuttiness. Flavour is slightly nutty at times, sweetly malty with a moderate hop bitterness. Average palate. Quite quaffable and a nice session beer. Wellington’s better beers are somewhat underappreciated in this regard I think. 6+/3/7/3/14-15 <P>Original RatingOn cask at Cest What - Subtle going down, very strong very good aftertaste sneaks up on you.
