When my brother texted me from the Great British Beer Festival with a photo of the 2013 draught version he was drinking I thought - donít get mad, get even and opened a 2011 bottle! I wouldnít usually drink this beer so young or in the summer months but wow, this is delicious. Massive frothy head, golden, sweet with an excellent hop balance and long lingering aftertaste. A hard act to follow.

Bottle 127865. Good sized milky tan head of medium sized bubbles. Fruity aroma with some marmalade as the description says, vanilla beans, sweet malts and some toffee. Color is a hazy dark copper. Flavor is a bit sweeter than expected for a 2 year old brew. More vanilla, caramel, sweet malts and some butterscotch. Light alcohol presence. I am really diggin this vintage. Finishes malty with a tad of sweetness. A pretty good brew and one of the better recent vintages.

Apricot marmalade, redcurrant, walnuts, raisins, figs and plums in the aroma, which altogether makes for a brandy-like smell. Full, thick body, very fruity flavour. Medium sweet with a moderate bitterness. Well hidden alcohol. Very nice beer.

500ml from Auchan (Luxembourg). It pours a hazy amber in colour with a thick white head that diminished. Some light yeast notes in the aroma, but a nice combination between sweet and bitter in the flavour. A very good beer.
