3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle into snifter, little to no head, clear deep ruby orange in color, boozy aroma. Definately tastes like most old/strong ales I've had with a smokey and sweet touch. Not bad, not chuggable, should come with a cigar.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Fergus. Pours mostly clear orange with mild particulate presence and a frothy off-white head. Lots of ripe and tangy fruits in the nose, some berries, caramel, spices. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with gooey malts, some cinnamon, rich berries, subtle spice, some leafy hops. Full bodied, lightly chewy, with fine carbonation. Finishes warming and lightly sticky, with some further spice character, toffee, bread, slight dates. Good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Fergus. It pours orange-amber with a small white head. The nose is sweet, juicy, lots of dried fruits, raisin, sultana, fruit cake, muffin, candy and spice. The taste is bitter-sweet, woody, leather, toffee, honeycomb, fruit cake, loads of dried fruits and hefty booze with a warming finish. Fullish body and average carbonation. Pretty big on the booze, but not bad anyhow.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nose is intense plum/prune/vinous/synthetic cherry. Flavor is same... Oddly fruity for the style with caramelized/burnt sugar in background. Caramel cough syrup? Wtf
