Bottle. Poured a small tan head that fully dissipated, no lacing, minimal carbonation, cloudy, and a brown orange hue. Nose was malty, caramel and lightly hoppy. Flavor was malty, bitter, caramel, and hops. Tingly palate. Medium body. thedm (6320) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2006
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of frothy light tan colored mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a hazy body with finely sized yeast floaties that was brown in color. The aroma was mild with sweet malty notes and the mouth feel was vinous and tingly from start to finish. The sweet malty flavor left a semi-thick feeling in my mouth.

Bottle labeled under the "Our Glass" moniker. Pours a headless dark brown. Very murky. Nose is malty and sweet with chocolate notes and caramel. Light hop aromas as well. Taste is cocoa, sweet malts, dusty or powdery cocoa, light floral hops. Touch of spice as well. Body is light-medium with almost no carbonation. Rather smooth, though. Finishes with more powdery cocoa, light flowery hops, soft chocolate, sweet malts, dried dark fruits, and a bit of spice. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2009

Sampled on 1/9/2011. This English Strong Ale pours a medium brown color from a 50cl bottle. Large sized white foamy head, with long lasting retention and nice lacing. The aroma is caramel, fruity, bready and sweet. A medium bodied English Strong Ale. The malts are caramel, fruity, bready and sweet. The hops are herbal and floral. Nice carbonation, a touch soft for a bottled ale. Nice balanced. Seems a little dry at the finish, with a touch of hops. Decent beer. Mouthfeel is full, yet sometimes get a little thin. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter downender (8891) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2011
Bottle from Waitrose, Stroud. Deep brown in colour with a touch of red and decent, off-white head. Fruity aroma with some caramel sweetness. Flavours of barley sugar and redcurrant jelly, with plenty of alcohol in the finish. Good. YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Ruby with a weak tan head. Sweet floral aroma, some licorice. Disappointing flavor. Decent but not exceptional. Great label but not a great beer. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2005
Mine was one of the "Our Glass" bottles. It’s a muddy reddish-brown with a wee white head and, luckily, tastes better than it looks. The aroma is a nutty roasted malt with dark, dried juicy fruits (prunes, raisins) and an earthy hop bitterness. It’s a thick drink with dark sweet malt, a bit of rough smoke, dried fruits, nuts, and hop bitterness. Nice dry finish. Good, but not special.
