Amber ale with a fruit & malt taste. Not to be drunk as a session beer due to abv.

Almost red in appearance this strong tasting beer is very deceptive and drinks easily so beware. Heavy on the malt with only slight hints of hops and bitterness.

(500 ml bottle). Dark brown colour, low head. Aroma of malts and ensilage. Flavour has some maltiness, some bitterness - but lacks complexity. Cool bottle and label promises more than the beer keeps. Probably better cask conditioned?

Excellent beer, amazingly appearence and taste. Toffee chocolate technique seems to have created a very interesting flavour.

A beer that never fails. Nice and light, very easy to drink without suffering from a lack in depth of flavour

First came across this strong ale in the Boswell Hotel in March 1993. Clear ruby red in colour with a striking white creamy head. Good fruity aroma with creamy mouthfeel. Pale malt complexes giving a rich malty Dundee cake flavour with syrupy overipe dates, raisins, sultanas and slight milky chocolate notes. Dry nutty almonds in the well balanced aftertaste leading to a dry vinous but sweet finish. Complex with an incredible depth of flavour, very easy to drink more than one!

[500ml bottle at the Movie Bar, Milton Keynes] Pours much darker than I expected - a deep reddish brown with a large foamy light brown head. I'm not normally a huge fan of Wychwood beers, but this was top notch - lots of roasted malts, some red fruit, sweet without being syrupy and with a deep earthy bitterness following through to take the edge of the sweetness.

Previously liked this in bottles (or out of them!) but even better on draught for 1st time today. Full flavour but not as heavy as the darkish colour would suggest. Well balanced, fruity and malty but a bit more hoppiness would suit my taste buds even more.
