Pours a dark copper hue with a off white two finger head and very nice clingy lacing everywhere,the smell is fruitcake,strawberry jam,boozy alcohol,brandied raisins and herbal hops,the mouthfeel is medium bodied,moderately carbonated but still rounds the palette with tastes of chocolate coated cherries,booze,roasted nuts,herbal hops and finished with a caramel candy bittersweetness and overall i like it and the perfect after dinner drop and would buy again as would age well cheers.

A deep chestnut to copper colour with a small, foamy head that is slightly off-white in colour and settles to a thin lacing after a few minutes.

Strong malt aroma to begin that is paired with a sweet and rather fruity aroma that has hints of darker fruits and a noticeable caramel smell that is quite pleasant. There is a little bit of apple, some spice and a touch of sugar.

Very rich and sweet with a good mix of caramel, toffee and dark fruit to begin with, coupled with some sweet sugar and a rich, malty base. There is some dates and apple along with a hint of vanilla too.

Very smooth with a medium body and medium carbonation as well. There is some definite spice and a very slightly dry ending.

An excellent beer with tonnes going on and a beer that strikes a great balance between the rich malty flavours and the sweet, dark fruit like ones. The caramel that both the aroma and taste start with are a lot stronger than I would have expected but this is a beer that I will be seeking out again in the near future.

Poured into a highball glass.

A: Deep copper with almost no head. Almost absolutely clear with no visible carbonation.

S: Malts, some spiciness and a bit of hops. Just a hint of sweetness.

T: slightly malty with a lot of hops. A hint of citrus and spice is present. Aftertaste is hoppy with a tinge of citrus and an almost honey-like sweetness at the tip of the tongue. Alcohol is uncensored, but pleasant. The citrus sat a little bit oddly on the tongue, almost bordered on becoming unpleasant. Everything disappears within 20 seconds.

M: Very light with slight carbonation. Very easy to drink.

O: It's a good beer, but far from outstanding. While I might still get this beer every now and then, I could live my life without ever having this again. A good beer to drink if you're looking for something easy but with character.

Amazing how accounts vary of this beer. It's one of the best I've ever had.

A: Huge beige head. Dark copper body. One bubble at the bottom.

S: Caramel / honey. Unrevealing - typically English.

T: Wousers! Lots of caramel. Very sweet, complements the alcohol to perfection. Nutty. A touch of dandelion & burdock, or phenols as they're known.

O: Not overly complex but perfect tasting. One of the most balanced beers I've ever had. Absolutely beautiful.
