2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle. Rated @ 6.6.2009.
Pours a clear orange colour with a minimal head. Horrible aroma of butter, malts and loads of honey. Same thing on the flavour too. Very greasy mouthfeel. This one is probably ruined, but that’s what you get when you use a transparent bottle for the brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2013 Bottle from a friend. Creamy vanilla malt aroma. Slightly hazy amber orange brown colour, not much head. Tastes like a Crunchie bar with hints of vanilla malt & treacle. Smooth & creamy with woody aftertaste. Interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2011 Bottled, 0,75l, from shop in London. Copper color with nice beige head. Aroma, vanilla, caramel with hints of wood. Taste, starts with vanilla, continues with caramel, wood. Toffee finish. Good for desserts or to drink it besides wine with your girlfriend or wife. Good beer for exceptional occasions.

again I was disappointed with this beer. It has a very coffee base, you can taste the wood. It just doesn’t have a clean taste. not recommended

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
9/12/10. 11.2oz bottle. Clear, light amber pour with a thick white head that lasts... the skunk is hitting me before I even try to sniff this brew. Why would these morons use clear bottles? Big skunk up front with old pee and a hint of wood. Sweet caramelly flavor followed by dry grains and again just a touch of wood. Huge meh here, folks.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 0,35L. This beer has a strong yet subtle taste of vanilla, which makes it a good beer for dessert. In my experience one bottle is usually enough, or it will be too much vanilla. Quite a good beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Deep amber-honey color. strong honey and wood nose. definate affect from the barrel aging. Butter and vanilla in the mouth.. Wet, though medium in the mouth with the right amount of honey to give a bit of sweetness. Intersting brew.. but not the best pairing of barrel and beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The aroma is very sweet, light fruity and weak alcoholic. The head is small, white and creamy with a normal carbonation. The body is light red. A very unique taste, very sweet with a lot of toffee. The body is light and very creamy with a rather lively carbonation. A good and special one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle LCBO Gift from Diane. Thanks so much. A really lovely beer with subtle flavour and silky mouth feel. Pours clear reddish amber - honey-hued is an apt description. Lovely aroma of toffee and sweet malt. Vanilla? well OK. Light to medium bodied, small carbonation, very easy on the palate. Tastes of toffee and sweet malts in the flavour, a very subtle taste. A style of beer that I like a great deal and a good representative of the style.
