On tap at brewery while picking up BA Speedway. Nose is huge malty boozy rich sweet, like a gigantic barley wine. Chocolate and brown sugar. Taste is same. Not nearly as boozy though. Bit of metallic bite. Pulls saliva like a sour. Long rich sweetness. Really big beer. Good for a cold day.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
(En fût à la brasserie): Beurre de noisette, vanille et une généreuse portion de brown malt. L’intensité des saveurs est superbement proportionnelle à sa buvabilité. Une des meilleures ’’petite’’ bière vieillie en fût de bourbon, une combinaison qui ne fonctionne pas souvent pour moi.

Biscut and choc aroma come from this clear brown beer with a small off white head. It has a typical dry english taste with a bit of choc and biscut with a light body. Not a bad tast tho i didnt get a nut flavor but a good brew none the less.

kcorum with the growler score. Medium brown color, light brown head. Roasted nuts, cocoa and the lightest of barrel hints. I think this must have been in the barrel maybe 3..4 hours? Kidding...but the barrel is very faint.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler share courtesy of kcorum10. It pours with a clear amber body that has copper edges and supports a light tan head. The aroma has nice rich nuttiness, some roasted malts and very light subtle barrel notes off in the background. The taste is similar with a pleasing nuttiness, sort of smooth light vague barrel notes and some roasted malts around the edges. Solid brown.
