4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Walters in trade. Some beers just have an immediate impact and are of such perfect balance that you have to give them a great rating. The cherry, bourbon, and old ale flavors that CAftW imparts made this brew stand out as unique, tasty, and drinkable. Only slightly carbonated makes this the lone knock on the palate for some. Absolutely stellar beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2016 Bottle at home, 2015 ed. Very dark red wine colour, no head. Amazingly complex cherry, red vinous, oaky vanilla, bourbon-y, lightly acidic nose. Taste has some additional roasted malty chocolate, coffee, butterscotch, nuts and dried fruits, warmingly boozy but high abv is well hidden. Brilliantly balanced. Red fruity, body lingering finish. Absent carbonation, big body, velvety (!) soft mouthfeel, oily texture.

12oz bottle 2014 release thanks to Prufrockstar- nose is like regular version but a little cough syrup or brandy. Flat. A little nutty probably from the ageing. Earthy.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle at home. Near black with a tiny off-white head. Strong, complex aroma, with cherries, roasted notes of chocolate and licorice, vanilla and caramel, and all held together by vineous alcohol character of bourbon and dessert wine. Sweet and complex flavour of dessert wine, cherry and aged barleyw wine. As good as any Adam from the wood. World class.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Murky brown color with a reddish hue, no head. Aroma is really intense with dark fruits, caramel, brandy, toffee and fudge. Taste follows with cherries, plums, figs, toffee and oak. Heavy, flat body. Really complex overall, lots of dark fruits and toffee. A bit of carbonation would do wonders though.
