ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2006
Bottled. Pale reddish amber clear body with a low sticky white foam. medium sweet aroma of caramel, cherries, figs, licorice and alcohol. Cramel, toasted bread, figs, raisins and alcohol in the flavour. The alcohol shines through a bit too much in the finish with notes of almond, orange-peel and mild spices. This one really has potential,

Drank in an English pint. Clear copper poor with a THICK sticky light brown head. Aromas are of bread, peppery, hoppy, butter, a hint of vanilla and cask. Incredibly well balanced beer. Flavors are exploding. Flavors of caramel, nutts, maple syrup and casis. You can definitely the alcohol.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2006 500 ml bottle, shared with StompBrockmore at a festive event - pours a clear orangey hue with a nice white head. Really fruity aroma, some malt, and a surprising amount of alcohol. Again, the alcohol in the mouth is surprising, but it goes well with an array of other flavours present - plum, cinnamon, broen sugar, and some nice English hops. A very nice malt balance as well. Almost tasted like a spirit rather than a beer, partially because of the warm alcohol, and partially because it carried an oakiness in the aroma and in the middle of the palate. As it stands, it still tastes fairly young, but it will age very nicely, Iím sure. I will surely rerate this in a few years, assuming I still have some of this vintage left. Grand.

Bottle(85222) from BevMo. Pours a medium/dark amber color. Lookskind of like a brandy color. Sweet, fruity, hoppy aromas right up front. Some sugar and dark fruit. Thick and rich right up front some roasty malty dark fruits and quite a bit of bitterness. Some alcohol is present. Finish has a hoppy bitterness along with some sugary sweetness.

Bottle from the LCBO. Ah, one of the highlights of my beer year comes around again. Pours a clear, bright orange-amber with a small, frothy white head that leaves some lovely lacing. Aroma of biscuits and fruit to start, opening up as it warms to reveal sugar and herbal hops, and tingly alcohol warmth. Flavour is like a solid English pale ale laced with a half-shot of warm, smoky whisky - oh, yesssss, this is nice. My only (minor) complaint is that the alcohol is a little hot and drying in the finish, especially as it warms up, but I think some ageing with take the edge off. I look forward try trying this again in a year or two, alongside the bottles Iíve got stashed away from the last couple of vintages.
