TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 1, 2013
Bottle from Whole Foods in Louisville - Pours amber with a thin quickly receding tan head. Full to heavy bodied with soft carbonation. Notes of thick chewy malt, leather, alcohol, wine, oak, pepper. Very nice, not overly sweet, restrained hop notes. A nice sipper.

Smell is of dark plum, taste is similar and a touch bit too watery, one-dimensional, that’s all there is to it...

Bottle. Prune, cherry, and caramel malt aroma. Medium brown with minimal head. Sweet raisin, toffee malt and moderately bitter herbal orange peel flavor. Body a bit light. Hides its strength well.

Bottle: (2012) Deep brown with a quick tan head. Rich, red apple peel and plum aroma. Taste is slightly vinous, red apple, dark fruit and a bit of chocolate/caramel. Dry, with a light spicy tingle and a soft boozy heat. Very, very good.

2012 bottle. Pours dark ruby, cappuccino head. Fair lacing. Nose is ripe berry, vinous, caramel malt, sweet. Taste is subtle, earthy, with fig, grape, residual sugar. Dry finish. A little ho-hum.

Strykzone (5072) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with amber highlights. A beige head leaves some lacing. I smell rich dark fruit and toffee. I taste raisins, toffee, huge malts, and alcohol to begin. Towards the finish I get vinous notes. Light harshness. Really easy to drink considering the ABV.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks zvikar. 2012 bottle. murky dark brown, beige wave. A little vinous, raisins, some chocolate aroma. Alcoholic, liquor-like taste. Full-bodied, no carbonation, long, lingering, liquor finish.

Aurelius (4376) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Deep, clear, ruby brown. Quickly-collapsing tan head. Standard UK 11.2oz bottle, good whisky-style label. Fruity aroma (golden raisins, dates, that sort of thing) with some woody astringency.. Very slightly medicinal up front, lightly-to-moderately sweet, alcohol bitterness, warming. Oily mouthfeel, peppery on the backend. Lots going on in here, comes together fairly harmoniously. Beer stop, Tallahassee.

slowrunner77 (6090) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Rich n fruity all the way. Very very English with an almost total lack of hops. Sweet, but not overly so. Also very dark and smooth...like a barleywine wee heavy hybrid. Nice.
