3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Found this at Fresnoís BevMo. Label was so worn, i wonder if this had been in a box/case that had traveled across the nation, more than twice, Iíve never seen such weirdly worn labels before.
I decided to get it anyways....
Appearance, rather dark amber, kinda woody like ha
Very thin head, not much lacing, off white head.
Aroma, not much, some malt perhaps.
Taste, not exactly like the DIPAís Iíve known, in fact Iím pretty sure this is mislabeled, Isnít this really just a barrel aged IPA [single]?
Some wood, rather green like, some other interesting flavors in there however. Just not quite there, though...
Someone described this as an English Strong Ale, not a bad description.
Iíd try this again, but i wouldnít pay a lot for it. Seems like the Bevmo price was Ok...
Interesting attempt however.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a perfect layer of fluffy foam head where as the liquid was a dark tea brown hue that seemed to glow. As for the nose, there was a delicate presence of caramel malt and a background of citrus fashioned hops. The flavor is crisp and has a nice balance to the grained caramel like malt and a taste of hops that are very different. Has a bready profile with perhaps a lurking touch of oats.

Pours a hazy brown color with some indistinct sweet aromas immediately noticeable. A little nutty and toasty with a very strong alcohol flavor. The faintest bitterness lingers afterwards.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly cloudy amber/brown color, very thin head. I love the aroma that is coming off this beer. Very sweet and malty with a hint of raw grains. The flavor is similar. It has a nice malty sweet finish. My only complaint is that itís fairly thin. Iíd like a little more body for this type of flavor, it feels kind of watered down. A decent brew. Nothing to write home about.
