12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 3/18/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep ruby red color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, brown bread, raisin, plum, fig, light nuttiness, light roast, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light-moderate yeast fruitiness; with solid strength. Taste of big caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, brown bread, light nuttiness, raisin, plum, fig, light roast, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, brown bread, raisin, plum, fig, light roast, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice robustness and complexity of big dark/bready malt and light-moderate yeast fruitiness; with minimal cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy, smooth, and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice English strong ale. Big robustness and nice complexity of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts, toasted malts and toffee are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the flavors of toasted malts and toffee stand out in particular.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This isn't a bad Winter Warmer if you like toffee flavors. Although no alcohol is perceptible in the taste, it will warm you up a bit and is a lot easier to drink compared to other beers in the style.
