3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) Hazy, copper-ish amber colour with a beige and dense foamy head. Sweet and strong Bock-like cara-malty aroma with notes of caramel, subtle fruity notes and almost ethereally spices. Sweet flavour with a balancing bitterness, full bodied with a calm carbonation. Robust (cara-)malty, slightly toasted base with caramel/toffee, liquorice, subtle fruity elements and again almost ethereally spicy notes; sweet and slightly bitter malt-accented, delicately toasted finish with an inoffensive, but very present alcoholic burn in the warming sense. A hearty, very flavourful brew. 28.IX.09

Bottle. Clear reddish-copper color with a medium, quickly-diminishing, white head. Nice aroma with biscuity malt, toffee, caramel, fruity notes and some hops. Flavor starts with some sweet chewy maltiness and caramel, and continues with a pleasant, somewhat spicy, hop bitterness and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful deep rusty orange with a thick densely packed vanilla coloured head that leaves early delicate lace. Rich caramel aroma, slightly earthy, with hints of spicy fruit. Very malty palate, toast and toffee with quince and cherry fruit. Woody and spicy notes, mild bitterness. Full-bodied, chewy, with a pleasantly warming finish. Like a baby barley wine! Delicious!

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2008 Fitting toast to Beckhamís anticlimactic 100th cap in Paris. Bronze ringed with white. Some enticing stemmy green orange/juniper hop notes on the nose, sweetly citrussy with plenty of caramelised malt back-up a bit like a mellow IPA. Flavour marred by too much coarse antiseptic alcohol, whiskeyish booze, and (agian) a dead lingering bitterness presumably the by-product of filtering/pasteurisation. Completely unaromatic. If thatís a word. Vaguely pleasant toffeeish notes, but smothered with sickly, buttery almond (ethanol). A very fine line indeed between this and Bavaria Red/RIP/ Exterminator-type malt liquors served in a brown paper bag. Dead barley wine ruined by pasteurisation and too much booze. I couldnít finish it.
