(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of Storm. Pours an almost clear reddish brown with an off-white head. Very distinct oak aroma. Quite full-bodied, sweet and sugary, plenty of roasted malt and a little yeast. No real bitternes. Extremely sticky - way, way too sweet and off balance. 190408

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
23rd January 2010
Opaque very dark brown beer. Some oak and sour malt on the nose. Semi soft palate with next to no carbonation. Sour dark malt with a bare whisper of marmite - well integrated. Oaky sweet note but no vanilla. Dark fruit - a little cherry and plums, surrounded by chocolate liquer. Trace of dried fruits. The beer goes down easily and it’s complex flavour makes every sip an anticipation.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Muddy brown colour. Toasty, oaky aroma almost like a brown sugary barbeque sauce. There is a subtle fruitiness, bouncing between citrusy and tropical. The body is dextrous, with an enlivening hint of acidity. The flavour is fruity, with intensely vinous oak notes, mandarin and yuzu. Big clean malts and a whiff of smoke. Finishes with an alcoholic splash. Fantastically complex, with great balance and drinkability, as well as a keen sense of style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle received via trade with eaglefan538. First, damn! This monster pours dark brown with a small, fizzy, light brown head, mostly diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, cookie, nutty), light hops (flowers), heavy yeast (leather, earth) with notes of oak, vanilla, bourbon, dates, prunes, and port. Full bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a creamy finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness. What a well-crafted beer!
