Bottle (2011, I think). Poured a medium amber color with minimal white head. Aroma was a bit sweet with a hint of alcohol. The flavor was some caramel and malt with just a touch of hops. I’d get this one again, it was pretty good.

Pours dark brown, small head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, some coffee. Sweet with quite high bitterness. A lot of oak. Overall a good beer but the oak becomes a bit overpowering after a while.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep reddish-brown body, medium cream head. Indistinct aroma of sweet, candyish malts with hints of hops bitterness. Served too cold. Surprisingly bitter, piney flavor with rather nondescript sweet malts (hints of berries, cherry), caramel, and toast, but not with the intense focus on the malt bill as suggested in the official description.

Birra particolare e spettacolare. Il colore è già una particolarità: color ruggine, manto di volpe, tendente all’arancione. Schiuma fine, poco spessa e poco persistente, di color giallo/arancione molto chiaro. Nell’aroma si percepiscono chiarissime note liquorose, barricate nonché di succo di melagrana e di frutti rossi, leggermente aciduli. In bocca è un capolavoro. Il liquore barricato è ciò che prevale: Porto, Grand Marnier, whiskey si sentono chiaramente. Il dolce del maltato è predominante, ma alla fine del sorso si avvertono anche leggere note amaricanti e un leggerissimo salato, che rendono la bevuta ancora più interessante. Può essere paragonata anche ad una Barley wine, per il suo carattere liquoroso e "stagionato", avendo però delle sue note peculiari.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle served in a snifter.
A: Pours a magnificent clear amber color forming a small but medium bubbled light yellow head. Low retention and only few spotty lacings left in the glass
S: Impressive smell sherry and woody. Delicious. Very sweet and fruity as well. Strong notes of oak, bourbon, toffee and caramel malts. Strong English Old Ale character. Notes of grapes and raisins
T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of oak, toffee, caramel malts, crystal malts, bourbon, grapes and dry raisins. Light hops bitterness as expected by the style
M: Heavy, creamy and molasses body. Low carbonation. Sweet malts and woody aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Classic English Old Ale. Just another masterpiece brewed by Founders

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle, dark amber with almost no head. Aroma is strong with distinctive notes of dark bread, honey, resin and herbs. Taste is a real explosion. Full bodied and well balanced, notes of dried fruit, honey, pine and dark bread. Slight bitterness leads a long and lingering finish. Real nice one!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of treacle, reminds me of my mum baking cakes when I was a kid; looks deep brown, hint of gold, clear; negligble head and looks flat; tastes smooth; nice tingle of carbonation; lots of sticky malts; hint of whiskyish saltiness; ok, but far from amazing and difficult to plough through - would be better served in nips.
