Tasted on March 13, 2010. Thanks to Traquairlover for sharing!

This poured a nearly opaque but clear dark mahogany with no head. It smelled like rich molasses and leather and malt vinegar, with some fig and prune and honey wheat and a bit of dark chocolate. It tasted like dry bitter chocolate and smoke and leather, with some molasses and fig and tobacco, and a bit of saltiness and dry prunes. It was somewhat thick with no carbonation, and had a lasting smoky aftertaste. Overall this was very similar to the King's and Prince's ales, with tons of bold and robust scents and flavors. It hid the alcohol better than the older brews, too. This was the smokiest beer of the group, but it was somehow more fitting the the extreme smoke of most rauchbiers. This was another gem from Burton on Trent, deep and contemplative, and a delight to sip.
