Dark red brown with a decent head.
Toffee and medium malts on the nose.
Rich and pleasant but not very complex malty flavor.
Way better than Chocolate Old Tom.

A: Very dark ruby. Small light beige head.
S: Mmm, so good. Loads of rum-like dried fruit and bubblegum.
T: Echoes the nose. Full-flavoured although nothing like the gaudiest of barley wines. Reasonably sweet and particularly bitter. Plenty of bread in the finish. Resembles St Bernardus yet it's quite a different animal.
M: Smooth but frothy.
O: At £1.50 a bottle it gets extra marks for the price.
