This one’s really nice. Sweet with some mild bitterness. Dark brown body with initial high foamy head, that settles into nice creamy, tight beige head. Aroma of roast grains, molasses, brown sugar wood. Taste is initially sweet, hint of dry burnt toast bitterness, finish is dry, mildly sweet (raisins?)

Bottle, 2012 vintage. Light roasty aroma, some subtle fruits. Fruity, lightly tart flavour. Not bad.

Poires, pommes, biscuit graham avec une portion surie comme une old stock. Le corps est bien charpenté, l’amertume docile, buvabilité honnête. J’aime bien ce genre ale anglaise/old stock.

Bottle. Rock candy, caramel malt, hay and light alcohol aroma. Copper with moderate head. Sweet caramel malt, hay, and light alcohol flavor. Very nice.

I’m going to attempt to age the few bottles I have left. It’s so hard! The complexity and palate is phenomenal.

Pours copper with a beige head. Nutty, bready, caramel nose that follows along the same lines in the flavor. The caramel is a nice foundation, with some oak, full bodied, finishes a bit yeasty with a banana note I didn’t like as much.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours brown with off white head. Taste roasted malt, chocolate, bready. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.
