3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap pour - comes deep amber with a steady off-white head. Aroma is sweet and malty overall with some dark fruit and brown sugar notes...good, if not that memorable. Flavor is sweet as well with caramel malts, dark fruit, burnt sugars and a solid dose of booze. Palate is medium bodied with medium carbonation - decent feel for the high ABV. Good brew overall

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a murky reddish-brown color with a foamy khaki head that settles to a thin film. Aroma of fruity esters, rich figs, brown sugar, dates, raisin bread, and slight phenolics. Taste has some sweetness up front with cherries and honey coming through. There is also a caramel malt flavor towards the middle with some nuttiness. The finish tastes very yeasty with some sugary dryness. Medium-high carbonation, full-bodied and somewhat creamy.

From the patio at Happy Gnome served in a footed pilsner glass. Visually appealing deep amber bordering on burnt sienna. Lacing is non-existent. Initially brings a heavy handed alcohol taste/feel ending with an abrupt but welcome cherry essence. Beer falls short of "good" sitting comfortably at "fair". I would let this flying dog lie.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Appelation Wines Edinburgh. Nice thick head. A little bit to carbonated on the mouthfeel. Aroma of caramell, pear and a little alcohol. Nice taste, like a good quad, with loads of caramell, roasted barley, and a pretty dry finish for being this high in alcohol.
Would buy again!

Bottle. Black with a small head. Bold malty flavours dominate. Straightforward and not very complex. Powerful yet so easy to drink.

Sampled on Draft at Cap Ale Innsbrook for the Flying Dog Tap takeover. Hazy amber pour with fair offwhite head. Strawberries and apricots on the nose make for an amazingly interesting bouquet that is the first time that strawberries come off as authentic. The flavor is very sweet and has a bit more strawberry that starts to push the medicinal, but i think that has something to do primarily with the intense booziness. I think this is going to be amazing in 2 years and I can’t wait to revisit!

Bottle at the ChrisO Flags of Many Nations Easter Tasting - London. Thanks to Jan for bringing this one. Pours cloudy red-brown with a fine, white cream head. Semi-dark malt nose with rich bread, yeast, candi sugar and some ripe fruits. Big sweet flavor, lightly alcoholic, with moderate ripe and dry fruits, yeasty bread. Full bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Lightly warming finish with mildly toasted bread, yeast, some dough, toasty sugars and berries. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a large bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a rusted copper-brown color with a good-sized, foamy off-white head that had good retention, lacing and cling. Its aroma featured fruits, particularly cherry and some light raisin, with a nice caramel mix, along with some earthy and grainy hops. It had a sweet cherry and fruity flavor, with a lighter mix of caramel, and a somewhat bitter and sour grainy finish. The beer had a fairly wet body with a slight creamy, watery mouthfeel, and average fizz and life.
