7th January 2011
Hazy dark red amber beer, no head. Dark toffee and wet wood nose, sour cherry too! Zero carbonation. Oxidised malt - chocolate and caramel. A little sour cherry and a trace of balsamic vinegar. Finishes sour cherry. Pretty intense and clearly aged. It works - just!

A bottle from barley wine shared with Petrus. No head, no carb, still promissing nose with lots of honey, plums and figs. But the tast is a bit flat and sour. misstored or to old? Still drinkable but not as good as expected.
