superspak (2840) - Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2014
375 ml bottle into snifter, 2014 vintage bottling. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy nearly opaque dark brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, toffee, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, raisin, plum, fig, cocoa, light coffee, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of big caramel, toffee, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, raisin, plum, fig, cocoa, light coffee, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, dark fruit, cocoa, and light coffee/nuttiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with a nice bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and full bodied; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/slick, and slightly bready/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent English barelywine style. All around great complexity, balance, and robustness of dark/roast/bready malts and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

kbudd19 (717) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle from James, thanks man! Beautiful silky dark pour with a nice finger of creamy mocha head. Aroma is brown sugar, raisins, and caramel. Taste is light bitterness, followed by mild sweetness, some brown sugar, dark fruits and a bit of roast. Aftertaste has some heat that linger, mouthfeel and carbonation are medium. Not bad, it’s certainly not as sweet as the aroma suggests, very tasty overall.

Bottle @ RG 21. Brown. A tad nutty, a smidge boozy, a bit molassesy. Bitter but it hits a little funny. Then it smooths out and has a nice finish.
