3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at GBBF, thanks to Leighton. It pours amber, with a thin off-white head. The nose is wood, leather, sweet tinned fruit and booze. The taste is rather sweet; raisin, currant, date, wood, tinned peach, vanilla and underlying alcohol warmth, with a dry finish. Medium body, low carbonation and slightly syrupy mouth-feel. Ok, but not spectacular. I didnít find it particularly drinkable, but that may be because it was a hot summers day....

Armagnac comes on strong on the finish along with grapes, dark fruit, dried fig and date. Light sour. Palate is medium, a bit sticky, not much carbonation. Very pleasant.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. A big, dense, off-white head forms over a clear, dark amber body. Lightly brett-ish aroma with some boozy hints, dried fruits, berries and a toffee hint. Really wonderful. Thereís some warmth on the palate, itís full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated, with flavors of toffee, booze, dried fruits, berries and a generic fruityness. Some apricot notes. Lasting finish with a lovely touch of the booze. Some vanilla pulls down the score a bit, I donít care too much for that in mye beers, especially in the paler beers. Anyway, itís a really nice brew. 130504
