This is a must try, so powerful there is a hint of spirt in the nose. This ale is light in colour and completly deceptive. Complex fruit tastes, lemon,etc etc. Don't drink this if your going to drive! very impressive for a strong ale.

Having tried this yet again at the Rugby beer festival I have to say that I felt my rating was a little low. I have therfore re-rated this ale.

Pale coloured strong ale lagered for 100 days! A sharp winey taste follows a strong nose. Very sharp finish together with a raw strong feel. Excellant.

This is wonderful, strong and pale in colour with a warming feel to every sip. Fantastic.

So, this is what Pope John-Paul II had in the last days of his life is it? Well, I don't blame him this is fantastic - warming, full-bodied, stuffed full of flavour, and best of all its also stuffed full of alcohol. Before you get the Last Rites, get some of Abbeydales Last Rites.

An amber coloured ale with a highly lethal ABV. Not unpleasnt to taste initially, however after half a pint of this I had had enough. Tastes like a normal beer with a double shot of a highly intoxicating spirit dropped into the top!

Sampled this barley wine at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2000. Once again this brewery shows the depth of real ale types in their portfolio and each one is crafted to a high standard. Clear orange amber in colour with a good thick creamy white head. Fruity aroma with hints of fermented honeydew melon. Thick moreish mouthfeel and warming sensation down throat. Pale malt complexes give robust malt base yet smooth flavours vie for attention. Golden syrup sweetness laced with clear honey combine well with spangle sweets in taste. Very slight hop note but overshadowed by warming mead like finish.
