Nose of dried fruit, berries, caramel, and bourbon. Smells alot heavier than 6%. Pours a clear garnet with a smallish creamy off white head that is mostly diminishing with very light lace. Balanced start with lightly tangy acidic middle. The finish is long with slight bitterness, and again notes of dried fruit, and flowers. The medium creamy body is flat. It doesn’t happen often that a brew tastes better than it smells, but this one does. Very well done, and would make a lovely session offering. Hoping this gives me some relief from my stomach virus.

A rich malty beer with deep caramel malts. The hops have a deep herbal flavors. The taste of the beer gives a real presence of English ale nick76 (4402) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2007
The aroma is malty with sweet with lightly toasted malt, yeast, and hops. The appearance is deep amber with a very small head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is a decent beer. Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, dark, amber golden with an off-white head. Sweetish, roasted malt nose. Quite full-bodied and solid with plenty of malt and caramel. Some hoppiness in the finish where also some alcohol shows. 311007 yespr (47567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours hazzlenut brown with a fully diminished head (started out dense and off-white). Aroma is slight nutty and sweet caramel. Has a slight herbal note too. Starts sweet malty and turns into a more soft malty flavour which again gains some liqourice sharpness in the finish. Ends pleasant with a persisting liqourice flavour.

Bottle wife brought back from Wi. Has a spicey, fruity aroma. Red body when held to light and vitually no head to speak of. Flavor has a stong barley presence along with fruit and spice bitter. Left on palate is a laquer paste of spice and bitter. Filling beer and a warms the body. OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Pint bottle pours pale brown with a short offwhite head that stays well. Aromas of slight caramel and brown sugar. Flavor is caramel, slight brown sugar, and slight bitterness at the finish. Palate is smooth and easy to drink. Pretty decent for a session brew and easy to drink. Somewhat dry at the finish. NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Bottle from the Beverage Castle, Tampa.
Has a bit of a fresh scrubbed glass, cleaning solution aroma, but that is muted. Stronger aromas include fruit and malt and a bit of caramel and sugar. The body is an orange tinted dark brown and holds a well formed thumb thick head that is quite lasting and very substantial looking. Medium sweetness with some very noticeable alcohol that gives a sort of dry chemical bitterness. Some dark fruit notes and a suggestion of spice. Finishes with some hop bitterness. Fairly decent, but the alcohol seems entirely too harsh for a relatively low 6% abv beer.
