Brown colour with a tan head. Malty, nutty aroma and a sweet light roasted dry taste. Medium body and a thin dry finish.

Nicely carbonated, and hopped. A little to strong on the bourbonesque taste though. Reminds me of liquor. Just another half-good english ale. Aroma is pretty much the same as the flavor. A nice smooth palate is the only thing that stands out. Malty bodied. with an abrupt finish.

Damn fine beer. Attractively dark, rich, and full body. Great flavor with a satisfying finish. I wish I could find this on tap in Knoxville, but I’ll have to be content with bottles.

strong and dark, the colour and the taste together, lashings of malt, not too much of a head, vanishes quickly but a very white....finishes quite bitter, not a beer to drink all of the time but pretty good once in a while

not a bad brew. not as bitter as the descriptions here seem to indicate.. a distinct dark, nutty flavor dances a drunken ballet with a subtle presence of carbonation. poetry.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2005 Very interesting beer. VERY strong bitter flavour. Not something i could drink a lot of, quite fizzy. Gives me a bit of a headache, id recommend anyone to try it though. good slogan ’afraid you might taste something lager boy?’ Very dark looking with a dark head.

Very thick head, noticeable and lovely. That said, the beer was strange - started well, finished poor. I didn’t enjoy that much.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 Bottle pours dark brown with a thick tan head. Very pleasing to the nose. Mix of fruit, malt, caramel, and a hint of nut or chocolate. I loved the first mouthful of this beer. Very complex taste, pleasing mouth-feel. Gets more generic as you drink. Good brew.

Draft at Party Source. Poured a light brown with an average off-white head that was lasting and porduced a fair lacing. Moderate well balanced aroma. Medium body with a sweet finish. Medium sweet balanced flavor that was for an average duration.
