Pours a cloudy reddish-brown with a small light brown head that doesn’t last long, no lacing either. Bready and caramel aromas, sugary caramel and sweet honey flavors, medium bodied with a lightly carbonated almost watery mouthfeel. Finishes with a lingering sweetness, gets better as it warms. tommy8768 (120) - Litlle Compton, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Slightly reddish-copper color. Head evaporates quickly. sweet malt aroma with a slight burnt tinge. Has an odd mix of tastes. First you taste the malt, then has a slight Belgian feel. Almost like a dark belgian ale. A little on the weak side body wise. Not too bad but not great either. hopscotch (11049) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Bottle... Crystal clear amber ale with a small, frothy, white head. Faint, malty nose and flavor with light notes of toffee and caramel. Sufficiently bittered for "near" balance. Medium-bodied and soothingly creamy with mediocre carbonation. Lightly bitter, grassy finish. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2006
Dark amber with a frothy head. Sweet, leathery aroma. The taste begins with some sweet maltiness, but the bitter hit is prompt, ashy and aggressive. Just what I was feeling like today. Tmoney99 (14372) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Bottle. Poured hazy dark brown color with a minimal froty white head that mostly lasted with minimal lacing. Moderate tart fruity aroma. Medium body. Medium tart fruity flavor with a medium smooth sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer did not meet my expectations.

Thanks to Book_M_Dano for this. 16 oz bottle. Amber pour with a light head. There is not much aroma (spice and malt???). The flavor is a light bitterness (in an English way) with well balanced non-descript malts. The body is creamy with a full and creamy mouth feel…Very boring. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2008
500. Pours a crystal clear dark brown with a loose and sudsy tannish head. Sharply tart nose in a way that seems to come from out of nowhere; raw and overripe and strawberryish, almost kinda grand-cru-ish. Odd, but you could see why they might want to go this way. Figs and dry leaves as well. Medium body, not much character in the way of creaminess or anything. Figs, raisins, and a bit of strawberry on the mid-palate. Neutral finish.

Pours coppery with a tiny beige head. Caramel and berries in the nose. Flavor is caramel, a bit of roast, and a long bitter finish. tommann (3715) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2010
