Fatehunter (2561) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Pours two fingers of foamy head on a clear dark straw body. The aroma is rich caramel and lemon. The taste is perfect caramel sweetness with mild lemon bitterness. The texture is smooth with low carbonation. An awesome brew to have off cask.

DrunkenCumquat (86) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2005
On tap in London and at Norrlands Nation, Uppsala (Sweden) - tasted the same at both places, so Iím putting the same review in for the export and non-export versions. Nice and dark, creamy almost brown ale, but bitter and fruity. Great fruity aroms, very impressive overall.

Dark beer with a coffee and chocolate aroma. Slightly bitter and a slightly burnt flavour. Palatable, a nice English ale.

Cask-Conditioned. Dark brown. Malty, fruity & a little hoppy. Quality bitter.

RobBestwick (920) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2003
mild pleasant hoppy aroma, dark brown hue, moderate frothy head gradually dissipating, average lacing, pleasant hoppy taste, not that much bitterness for a "bitter"

Never had much luck with it next to food, but with all sorts of nuts, its fantastic.

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2011
12oz on tap. Poured dark amber with full head. Bitter but smooth very enjoyable one of the best bitters

Chestnut brown with medium head, light carbonation for a real easy not to strong with a hoppy finnish beer.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2014 Nice one. Good strength and pleasant aftertaste. Will drink again and probably re rate
