3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Cloudy amber, disappearing off white head. Intense grapefruit hop aroma. Bit of odd yeast. Bit fishy. Bit over carbonated. Carries alcohol well, but lacks malt. Hop finish is zingy and grassy. Just a bit empty, but the aroma and hops pick up the score.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 07-03-06 picked up at House of Fraser Birmingham. Cask Conditioned at Dudley Winter Alse Festival Nov 19th 2005. This has been a belter on both occasions I have had it though just a tiny bit better in cask format. Warm orangey brown colour, barely much of a head, this is a sweet and very fullsome barley wine dangerously drinkable, excellent.

A really surprise from Durham, maybe the best I have had from them, Not squasy and very strong, Myabe that is the reason why. But it was also dark.
