As Rum Aged, 6.8%. 330ml bottle into pint. Distant peppery smokiness and alcohol aroma. Crystal clear bronze beer with solid creamy head. Full-bodied and oily, smooth. Really really smooth. More subtle than I expected, buttery toffee with hints of rum in the finish. Ridiculously easy drinking. Wow!

Rubinowa, przejrzysta barwa; piana niska. Nasycenie średnie. W smaku wyczuwalny alkohol i nuty (nie wiem jak to inaczej nazwać) drewna. Nietpliwie ciekawe piwo, ale niczego nie urywa.

Bottle. Very estery, lots of ripe red apples, lots of woody vanilla. Toffee, wood, subtle pineapple. Faint rum-like notes but only in the flavour. Soft, very balanced, finishing light tannic. Very good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
6.8%ABV. English Strong Ale.
Poured out clear dark mahogany. 28ºSRM.
Nose is sweet and floury and for the local aroma notes, smells like red bean soup or paste, azuki. Otherwise, aromas of caramel and butterscotch describe it well enough. There is also a clear sweetness that is like a hard candy. But overall, the aroma of caramel keeps coming through, like kettle corn.
Mouthfeel is watery. Palate is toasted sweet malt with pale malt sweet, in fact, very sweet all the way through, some caramel, Graham cracker and dark honey. An interesting very brief hit of spice in the very front of the palate which fades right away. The remainder of the palate is left to nutty, cracker and biscuit flavors.
No hop finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2016 Bottle I got as a gift from Gabriel, thanks man! Pours a clear chestnut, topped by half a finger of fizzy tanned head showing average retention and leaving coarse lacing. Minimal carbonation. At first, the nose is pretty herbal but it opens up to a subtle roasted malts, toffee and dark rum. You do get some oak, but it?s pretty subtle. The taste is sweet roasted malts, toffee, nuts, rum and herbal hops. Medium-low body with a crisp carbonation. Leaves a sweet herbal finish, where that woody element in the nose comes back a bit. Very nice. Cheers!
