"A beer conceived by Head Brewer Jeremy Moss, to celebrate the return of Brakspear brewing to Oxfordshire. This is a triple fermented, triple hopped strong beer, packaged in individually numbered bottles.

With its high alcohol content and bottle conditioning, this is a beer that will go on to develop further complexity as it matures in its bottle."

Butterscotch, denatured alcohol, and honney hints in the crisp aroma. Butterscotch and ruccola flavour. Good bitterness in the aftertaste. Strange "bridge" though between the sweet taste and the bitter aftertaste.

Bottle - Clear brown beer with a beige head. Light caramel aroma. Yeasty. Alcohol note. Would benefit from a bit more maltiness. Hints of toffee flavour. Low bitterness. Medium carbonation.

Bottle. A pre-ratebeer signup rate for me, many moons ago, although it’s not too dissimilar from the current lower strength version. Dark amber, fairly smooth in the palate, some sweetness, some fruitiness.

Hopmaestro (847) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2015
Aoma of flowers, malt, caramel and red berries. Strong malt, semi-hoppy flavor with a medium body. Bitter in the aftertaste with a alcohol bite. There is a berry like presence in here.

KyotoLefty (8125) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle from a supermarket in London, 2013, as Brakspear Triple. Rather faint nose, caramel, earth, some estery yeast, apricot, hay. Amber-orange, clear, with a fine bubbly head. Sweet malts, some caramel and crackers, Lightly fruity, apricot, orange hops, grassy, grainy. Hard to categorize this. Prickly, peppery, citrus hop finish, though not hugely bitter, with crackers. Full, smooth body, though not too heavy. Prickly carbonation. Nice, but not really enough flavor for the strength.

zimbo (808) - SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2015
This big bold beer comes with some appetising honey and tropical notes but structurally its one of the flabbiest beers I have experienced. Too heavy on the crystal malts too.

jamesie1857 (1763) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2015
500ml bottle - Deep amber body, slight off white head, soon goes. Nose is bananas, molasses, caramel and fruits. Taste is lovely and warming, more alcohol noticeable than in the little 6.7% bottles, and with a great velvety mouthfeel. Decent.

Brunrød farge med off white skum. Lukter Malt, karamell og plomme. Mild sødme i smak og noe bitter maltsødme i ettersmak.

Kuparinvärinen, mutta kirkas olut. Voimakas maku, mutta monipuolinen, kuiva maku. Jälkimaku pysyy pitkään miellyttävänä suussa.
