Review: Olde Suffolk English (Strong Suffolk Vintage) Ale

Olde Suffolk English (Strong Suffolk Vintage) Ale from Greene King / Morland Brewery
Rating: B+

Purchased at Taste in Hong Kong. Slightly different labeling.

One of the better written descriptions of aroma/flavor on the bottle that I've seen.

Very nice ruby/garnet color, smallish head, no lacing to speak of. Nose is of fruitcake, spice and caramel. Flavor can be described with burnt toffee, slight oak finish, and some raisin. Mouthfeel is slick, light-medium body. Carbonation on the light side but expected in the style. Drinkability is decent, might be the best beer I can readily purchase in HK so I'd better get used to it.

Serving type: bottle

'better get used to it'? You make it sound like its a chore. I think its a top drop although a little bit of malt at the end to give it a bit of creaminess would have been nice
