27th March 2011
Cloudy brown beer, no real head. lots of oxidised malt on the nose. Flavour is oxidised malt and chocolate. A little dried fruit underneath. Persistent agitation gets shot of most of the oxidisation fumes and flavours and turns the beer clear!! Now the beer tastes like of rich barleywine like malts with lesser notes of aniseed alcohol, bourbon, smooth unsweet wood and chocolate. Warming finish. Nice beer - but Top 50??

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. Not much head produced, some beige bubbles though, clear, dark brown body underneath. The booze on the nose is sure present, but it just fills out the blanks, if any, left by the caramel, vanilla, oxidation, dried fruits, hints of chocolate and coffee and oxidation. The alcohol is much more evident in the flavor, sort of pushing, but far from annoying. Oxidation hints, some vanilla and a good dash of caramel and dried fruits. Full-bodied, warming and low on carbonation. Long, warming finish. A really nice beer, not sure if it deserves a top 50 rating, but it’s sure nice. 110819
