(Bottle 33 cl) Pours black and completely opaque with a creamy, light brown head. Vinous, lightly tart nose. Lovely, lightly sour, vinous flavours - actually this reminds me of a very good Flemish Sour. A very sophisticated and refined brew. 270106

Bottle, 8.0%. Good aroma, roasted coffee, some cream. Black colour, red shine. Small stable brown head. The flavour is very creamy with a good coffee note, some sweetness. Good alcohol note in the finish to balance the flavour and sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Close to pitch. Malty aroma - toffee, wood, molasses and Highland whisky. Rich malt flavours of molasses and earth, melded seamlessly with light peat and whisky notes. Finish is sweet, almost cloying, though there is also tartness there. For a barrel-aged beer, this is quite balanced. I had Calva Reserva last month and though they've both spent six months in their respective casks, there is a tremendous difference in balance. Just one more reason why Harviestoun is one of the top British breweries, I guess.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of dark malts, dark fruit, and mysterious alcohol. It’s opaque black, but halogen brings out ruby hilites. The tan head ringed, but left lace tatters at the edges. Full bodied; mild, creamy, carbonation. It has the dark toasted malt of a stout, the sweetness of something indescribable, some coffee, some puckery smokey notes (from the barrels?), some astringency, and, arguably, some pruney, raisin impact. It is quite the ale. Yummy. A great sipper in the late evening.
