It was good but not something I would drink often. Just too many other good beers that I enjoy more. You can tell by the review that nothing really stood out awesome

I have a learned off-sider, Ned. Ned readily bought this back for me from the US and it has sat in a cool dark cupboard for around a year, waiting patiently for its consumption. I am most grateful to Bartlett, but its consumption is mine, all mine. It appears a brassy colour with a skim of head that covers the beer from the top of the glass to the bottom. It smells rich and with alcohol sitting like a ripe and mature character like ripe Port, Oloroso Sherry or Madeira. It smells gorgeous, more like barley wine than IPA. The flavour is similar: mellow fruitfulness of sultanas, jersey caramel, spicy fruit bread, dates, figs and fruit leather. There is a tangy bitterness that is more like preserved orange peel but this is a classic. It is too good to let stay but I will remember it, and Ned, fondly for the service of bringing it to me.

Slightly hoppy nose, golden amber color. Taste starts out with a few hops before turning to oak and then finishes with hops. Slightly thick mouth feel.

Pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma has a lot of citrus hops with distinct caramel malt undertones, the 90 minute is also noticeable; slightly oaky too. Taste is moderately sweet and more bitter in the finish. Lighter body, thinner on the palate, and good carbonation. A really nice beer.

Cerveza perfectamente balanceada para la potencia de alcohol que posee. El amargor my bien logrado se mezcla perfectamente con las notas de la madera. Mejora con la temperatura hasta cierto grado.
