COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For 14 wonderful years, we have been creating libations for ourselves in the hope that some others out there would share our eccentric palates and support us. Many thanks to all of you who do! Here is yet another quirky brew: a very dark and different, dry-hopped ale. Style? hard to say, you decide. Just expect massive molasses maltiness, limitless fruits on the nose and an imposing floral & zesty dry-hop finish. Peace to all and follow your dreams!
1.090 OG, 60 IBUs.

Not sure if it was my fault or what, but this thing gushed. Maybe just shaken up. Pours really dark red with four fingers tan head, bunch of sediment too. Smell is like a barleywine but lighter, coco, malt, red fruit, really complex, taste is a bit stale, but very complex, bitter, coco, espresso, molasses, some fruit flavor too, interesting beer for sure.

bottle, sampled at the rbesg07 grand tasting in sunny glasgow. a rich shade of brown with a reddish tinge and a steady beige head; big cookie dough aroma with hints of rum’n’raisin ice cream; hints of cocoa powder and icing sugar flavours and plenty of bitterness. more drinkable than the other high abv avery beers i’ve tried

Pours a deep brown with very little head that is gone quickly. Notes of dark fruit and floral hops in the aroma and taste with some caramel. mouthfeel is medium. Decent.

Bottle. Pours dark reddish-brown with a medium beige head. Sweet caramel aroma with a hint of citrus hops. Flavor is sweet and only partially balanced by some hop bitterness. Notes of caramel, chocolate and grapefruit. Slightly bitter finish.

(*2007/4ans): Peut-être pas le meilleur candidat pour la maturation, j’aurais aimé la dégusté fraîche. Au nez c’est l’explosion d’anis et de mélasse qui se font un peu plus discret en bouche. Tout de même assez complexe avec ses fruits sombres, j’ai l’impression que le houblon défraîchi a un peu gâché le portrait de ce grand cru. La finale est étrange avec un mélange de viande fûmé et de vielle grange. Le concept général est vraiment intéressant mais elle n’a pas bien vieilli au niveau des saveurs. L’age lui a cependant donné une superbe présence en bouche.

This was a share @ woodshop Classix Aug 27th 2011. Notes are as follows: Dark beer with some give towards purples, a bruise in a glass. Deep dark fruit notes with a tad bit of swirling raisin muskiness. Taste is very rustic dark fruit, lots of age seems present in this. Figs and prunes linger with an in check sweetness. The prune is in between old plum and ripe prune, quite nice. The flavor and feel is pretty good, reasonably creamy despite a lack of carb. The flavor is still strong in the beer, but I would crack this if you have a bottle. I don’t see this getting better.

Finally cracked my bottle of this open. Pours a red-hued, dark brown body with a large light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, sweet malts, and bread intially and then molasses and rum later with a faint hint of citrus hops. Flavor is similar - the malts have a light roast to them to go along with hints of cocoa powder, raisin, and dark fruit. Medium to heavy body, probably along the lines of a heavy porter, but not quite an imperial stout. Bitter finish that is both dry and slightly sticky at the same time.
