Bottled 04/01/14. Bottle number 4385. A deep red coloured beer with a nice white head. Strong and boozy. Nicely balanced. Malty fruits. A little yeasty. Good hops. Tasty but not got the stand out depth of flavours other vintages have had. A bit of a standard English String Ale when allís said and done.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle, # 91556. Deep amber in color with a lasting, thin beige head. Sherry-like aroma at first, wood and sweet soaked plums, some toffee notes as well. Inviting aroma. Flavor has dark fruits, hops, caramel, dates and woody notes. Finish is quite short with dark fruits notes and some alc. warmth and hint of vanilla. Definitely not írawí anymore, and has mellowed out a little. Could deliver more flavorwise, leaves one a bit empty after the inviting aroma.
