3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from 341ml brown bottle. Pours ruby brown with slight off white head which was short lasting. Fruity malt in the aroma. Dark chocolate giving way to a dry, yet short bitter finish. Notes of alcohol throughout. Medium mouthfeel.
Part of Reboot mix pack #3. Pours an average size frothy tan head that dissipates to a thin layer. Has a fairly dark amber appearance. Weak lacing. Aromas of toasted malts, a little woodsy, subtle spice notes. Flavours of roasted barley malt, strong dry fruit notes like raisins and plums. More spice notes but somewhat faint. Quite a lot of bitterness in the finish. Slight warming mouthfeel, also slick and sort of oily. Not too bad. gfole013 (39) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2018
Dark. Smooth. Malty. Slightly bitter finish.

Bottle from 4-pack sampler. Pours a deep chestnut brown. A very chewy ale. There's a lot to sink into with this one. Dark sugar, a hint of rum, & stone fruit. A nice crispness despite the sweet character of the style. Hops are bitter but not abundant & I usually crave more but it's kind of ok with this brew. Good stuff.

bouteille. Nez de malt caramel toffee (rôti-sucré) et de mélasse avec des notes de fruitées. Rondeur moyenne en bouche. Léger goût fruité sucré (fruits rouges) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût malté de caramel toffee (légèrement sucré et rôti) puis finalement un goût légèrement amer d’alcool doux et de rôti prend le dessus et se poursuit jusqu’en arrière-goût (avec une légère aigreur fruitée).

Brun öl med lätta inslag av rött. Beige skum. Doft av kola, karamell och malt med lät fruktighet. I smaken tillkommer en lätt nötighet.

Great dark beer and goes down smooth. Chocolate taste with a mix of coffee. From far looks like rate wine! Lol Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a dark brown color with a one finger white foamy head that gently dissipated to leave a light somewhat foamy lacing roaming along the glass in a slight trickling sort of fashion.
The smell started off with a rich nuttiness eventually allowing a light vanilla and then an intruding chocolate with a decent booziness.
The taste took all of those flavors and combined wonderfully.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionability to it. The carbonation finishes slightly harsh and its got a deal boozy vanilla aftertaste.
Overall, this was a pretty good offering that I would have again. patlab (25) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Great tasting beer that offers a bit of a kick at 6.5%. Nice caramel flavours and a smooth palate make the Iron Duke another great offering from Wellington. daniel0017 (455) - Yukon, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
Dark with a brown hue. Short frothy beige head with good retention. Molasses and malt dominate the aroma with a hint of toasty bread. Flavour is sweet at the forefront, less sweet, edging towards bitter near the end and has a comforting, warm finish. Rich, velvety mouthfeel. Goodness, yes.

Great dark beer, with dried fruit reminiscences in its aroma and with a heavy an clean flavour.
