Yard (45) - Senoia, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Dark in color with no head. No lacing, roasted aroma. Hoppy, but dark. Not much aftertaste. Nothing to special. Average beer.

Jabic (667) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 21, 2017
Ar: Tangy caramel and treacle; a small amount of strawberry fruit leathers; spicy tea. Ap: Deep ruby amber; clear; medium-small tan head with decent retention, leaving a crowded blotch of medium and tiny bubbles. T: Toast, caramel, and biscuit; tobacco and treacle; very mossy hop flavor with a moderately clean bitterness; black pepper and a little roast; prunes and crackers on the finish. P: Medium-light body with very high carbonation; finish is dry. O: A technically well-made English dark amber ale; assertive bitterness and hop flavor, but very malty always; fairly clean yeast character and high carbonation make the beer a tad sterile, but still it displays some classic English character.

On bottle. Pours clear red/brown. With small white foam. Notes of caramel and raisins. Well carbonated, a little watery, malty.

gunnernic (13) - SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 20, 2017
Lacking overall aroma, but taste is exceptional, overall a great bitter, would recommend

Ligera en aroma y sabor, cuerpo medio y escasa espuma, algo licuada y poco compensada

Almogabar (72) - MARIA DE HUERVA (ZARAGOZA), SPAIN - OCT 2, 2017
Botella de 50 cl adquirida en Lidl. Color rojo oscuro, espuma beige moderada. Aromas a caramelo, maltas y frutos secos. Sabor equilibrado, amargor ligero, notas de torrefactos, café, chocolates. Algo cítrico por el lúpulo utilizado. Buena cerveza tostada.

Zilb (360) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - SEP 21, 2017
9 mois avant DLC. Offerte par Pills et Vivi. Ambrée foncée limite brune à belle mousse bonne tenue et carbo moyenne. Arôme malts grillés et caramel. En bouche, tout sur les malts grillés. Amertume sèche un poil résineuse. Bonne longueur en bouche.

Grumbo (3847) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2017
Bottle from my local Tesco. Poured dark ruby brown with a nice sized creamy off-white head. Aroma of dark fruit, malt, toasting, nut, fruit cake and a touch of chocolate. Moderate sweetness and medium bitterness. Full body, oily texture, average to soft carbonation. First rating of the bottled version despite having it a number of times over previous years - first time for a while now and it is still a decent brew.

hens (762) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - SEP 8, 2017
0.5L bottle. Clear dark brown color with small beige top. Roasted bread, caramel aroma. Sweet bread, raisin, light apple taste. Sweet caramel candy mouthfeel. Light bitter end.
