Beautiful deep amber colour and a nice clinging head. Extremely malty (toffee) and vinuous with a very warming alcohol presence. Excellent for a cold winter evening. Lacking the complexity and woodlike touch of the Vintage Ales, but still a great beer.

Bottle.50cl. Nice english bitter, with a small hint of diacityl and that gives the beer a good sweetness to the bitter notes of the beer.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2009 Tonnes of aroma. A dark redish brown nectar of pure gold and flavors in a next to perfect mix. It has strength, roundness, maltyness, freshness and just about everything one could wish of a really great beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2012 500ml bottle from the LCBO, served ~15C in a Duvel tulip. Aroma: Sweet, grainy malt, candied orange, dusty grass. Appearance: bright copper, clear with an inch of creamy head that lingered and left lacing. Moderate mouthfeel, a little oily. Initially sweet malts, orange, grains, a bit of hop bitterness and some alcohol. Mix of moderate sweetness and bitterness with additional drying from alcohol. Doesnít really hide its strength much. Nicely balanced beer, not as unctuous as an old ale/barleywine style. Could be a little bigger in flavour but would make a nice strong ale for an early fall evening.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. BB 04.2016. Pours a deep coppery amber with a good creamy head leaving some lace. Very nice malty, toasty, marmalady sweet aroma with a bit of red berry sourness, caramel, and a touch of alcohol coming through. Tastes sweeeet, I get jam and marmalade, toasty and nutty notes, as well as a touch of burnt caramel. Itís mostly just malts - thereís only a bit of finishing bitterness. Carbonation thin and not very active. Itís a touch shy of a good barley wine - a bit too thin and lacking boldness. Itís, letís say, a somewhat mellow and lean for that (with all due respect). Might improve with aging - will go ahead and try with another bottle. It is very good as it is though.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.33l bottle. Deep orange body, nice beige head. Caramelly aroma with lots of fruityness and a minimal roastyness. Lots of caramel, some chocolate, reisin and bread with lots of fruity hoppyness in the flavor. Big body. Itís like a double IPA. Awesome beer!
