(12/2011) bottle. Amber, a bit of sweet malts, hops (british) and alcohol. Surprisingly smooth on the palate, but with a bit of hotness coming through. A well made, strong engllish ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle): Pours an amber with ruby tint, small white head. Sweet malty aroma with floral and citrus notes. Taste has strong fruity sweetness, malt, caramel with some earthy, floral notes coming through with the bitterness on the finish. It’s pretty good, a little too sweet - I prefer hobgoblin to this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear, deep brown reddish with white off top, medium lasting, a bit lacing afterwards. Aroma is rich malty-bready, bongbong candy, sweetish dark fruits, a bit alcohol also comes out. Liked so intense aroma.
Taste is semisweet, far away sour plus pleasantly above medium bitter from hopping - this brew overall reminds me more of bitter but aromatic one, with no yeasty profile presence.
Palate - medium body, light dry finish, sort of toasted malt bitter in aftertaste (also in first aroma was a bit of toasted malt). Mild spicy bouquet.
O.A. - very aromatic, bitter ale, minus was confusion about accordance to style, not easy drinkable, complex flavor.
