What the label says:

Chaaarge your glasses troops and enjoy a proper English Beer!  Savour the distinct aroma, the surrender to the perfect balance of malty richness, tangy hops and sultana fruit on the palate.  Brace yourself for a long soft spicy finish.  Bang on!

What the Beerdrinker says:

For a standard beer, this is very dark.  It has a good head retention and a whilst the nose is yeasty there are slight undercurrents of blackcurrant.  The beer has an initial blackcurrant taste, with a bitter finish followed by an aftertaste of caramel.  This beer has a very interesting range of quite different and intense flavours.
