3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy orange beer with a fast dying orange head. The aroma is sweet spicy - with some notes of stale fruits - reminds me of a Belgian Ale. The flavor is very rounded with notes of caramel, malt, lots of fruit, going towards the stale towards the end. The alcohol shows of with a slight bite.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Strongly hazy with a yellowish head. Fat aroma of malt and caramel. Fairly full-bodied dominated by malt and caramel. Rather odd, underlying tang - perhaps itís a slight oxidization

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Opaque, deep orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. Fruity, malty aroma with notes of caramel, black tea, toffee, cotton candy and red apple. The flavor is all about malt, but is perfectly balanced by a very deliberate Sterling hop addition. So delicious and caramelly. Also fruity and vineous (port). Medium-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. Lengthy, astringent finish. More reminiscent of an old ale or barley wine than a mild. Tons of thanks go out to jtw for the bottle.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle acquired in trade with Styles (thanks!). Poured a deeper copper color with a small sized off white head. Some floaters. Aromas of wood, dark cherries, caramel and it has a light earthiness to it. Tastes of wood, oranges, caramel, and lighter cherries. Tastes on the softer side (I attribute this to its age).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber pour. The nose is great. Rich sweet fruity nose. There is a kiss of pineapple and other dried fruits. Plums and a bit of cherry as well. Sweet caramel malts with a touch of sherryish oxidation that adds a lot of complexity. A bit of honey and some lingering dried plums. Quite nice and Iím glad to have seen how well this has held up.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at argo0ís pre-RBSG tasting, July 2006 (courtesy artusory). Coppery sort of colour. Big, heavy, malty aroma - lots of caramel. On the palate its rather woody and not a little oxidised. More caramel malt comes through but the fruity notes that must have been much more pronounced earlier on were pretty vestigial by now. Interesting but a bit past its best in my view.
