UPDATED: JAN 2, 2006 Bottle conditioned. Old gold coloured with a slim white head. Fruity aroma (apples?) with some interesting hops.
taste-wise my first thoughts were that it was all over the place; followed by, I like it. Disparate elements that it just manages to meld together in time. Hops, fruit, caramel, sweet malts and a medium bitter long finish. Full bodied with a slightly flatish mouthfeel. I lilke it. DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2006
Bottle from the old indoor market in Derby. Not bottle conditioned. Bit fizzy. Pale brown incolour. Quite quaffable for the 6.2% strength, mind you I had just finished a bit of a tough day at work, so that helped it slid down nicely. shoestring (439) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - MAY 31, 2007
Bottled - Hollies Hotal , Blackpool. Yes very nice. Very cloudy in my glass, mirky orange with sticky head. Smokiness comes through and very drinkable despite strength. JorisPPattyn (10137) - BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2003
Extremy huge, creamy and white head, irregular. Dull orange colour, slightly hazy. Sweet yoghurt drink nose, mango! In the taste a bitterness, vaguely hoppy, doesn't quite succeed to cover up the same papaya or mango-flavoured sweet yoghurt drink flavour, which forms the base. There are some hints of clove, maybe cardemom too, lemonzest and even crystal malt. It's weird all the same. A bit pappy mouthfeel, nearly chewy. Lactic impression. I would never claim I dislike this. I only wonder if this taste was intended as such. Spiesy (2337) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2004
Bottled. Ever so slightly cloudy amber with a very large white fluffy head. Quite conditioned and a little to gassy but the aroma and flavour make up for it. Fruity, floral rose petal aroma. Seductively sweet with a floral, fruity twist finish with a dry bitter finish.

A dark, reddish orange coloured beer with a frothy white head. A malty nose, caramel and a banana-like fruitiness. A bittersweet taste, a dry malty flavour is followed by a sweet caramel taste, toffee apple, then banana again. A smooth, not too sweet finish.

Bottle. Clear amber with a big creamy beige head. Citrus and caramel aroma. Caramel flavours matched by good citrussy hoppiness. Medium body. Very good. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2008
