COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A demi-sec ale brewed with whiskey yeasts, from the island of Islay, creating striking dryness and lively effervescence. The nose showcases almond and tropical fruits. The palate is malty, with flavors of plum, dried apricot, and spice. It’s finish is dry and warming from the high alcohol. Rare on tap!

floydian1 (1173) - FNQ, Australia, - JUN 27, 2015
750ml bottle from Enoteca Sileno, Melbourne. 2008 vintage. A cloudy dark amber beer with no discernable head. Initial gush of foam on bottle opening. Aroma has strong brandy notes with notes of alcohol, toffee sweet malts, Christmas cake, cloves, and subtle marzipan. Flavour is very sweet and malty like a brandy with light spiciness and alcoholic warmth. No hop presence to speak of (which may reflect the vintage). Palate is sticky sweet and fullish bodied with a flat carbonation and astringent dryish finish. I suspect this is maltier, sweeter and less hoppy than fresher bottles. OK for that Winter sipper by the fire.

SamTheBarrel (626) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2015
750ml dark olive-green bottle with embossed logo and a wax sealed cork, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is hazy copper colored with no head. Aroma of raisins, apricot marmalade, caramel and figs. Flavours of raisins, apricot marmalade, figs, caramel, toffee, spices and nutty notes. Taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Baladin Elixir is flavorful but a little too sweet.
