burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2005
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: JAN 23, 2018 Bottle at home. Dark amber, beige creamy head. Caramel malty, maltbitter, English hops, easily drinkable but still quite good bodied, light bitterness in the finish. Pleasant!

BojanM (45) - Banja Luka, BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - JAN 17, 2018
Tamno crvena boja, debela smedja pjena, veoma lijepo za oko. Arome nisu mnogo izrazene, pomalo kafa, cokolada i sušeno voće. Vema blage gočine i karbonizacije, vodene teksture.

An average beer, not amazed by it at all. But drinkable, nice. Pale, chocolate aroma, light body, light foam....

While enjoying discovering beers from this brewery, this one described as ruby red ale, where I would hope for an amber or scotch ale, ESB is not my cup of tea.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 Une superbe bière brune qui dévoile des saveurs de malt torréfié, de café et de houblon. J'ai adoré.

0.5 l bottle shared. Apperance: A mahogany body, with a small thin offwhite head. Aroma: dark fruits, Malts, burned malts and sugars. Taste: Starts fruity sweet, some biscuit malts, some caramle malts, and some burned sugards in the short bitter finish. soft carbonation and a light body. OKay.
