Bottle from LCBO many moons ago. Bottled in 2012. Deep reddish brown. Not much of a head. Superb strong aroma of caramel and toffee and toasted marshmallow. Caramel and toffee flavours, with some lingering toasted marshmallow and a hint of oak. Reminds me of Thomas Hardy barleywine. Fantastic stuff.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shared 0.355l bottle @ Rossí flat in NYC . 2010 model. Itís a really deep dark brown looking one this. Near what Iíll call murky, still good looking and on the top thereís a sidesticking off-white head - small lacings. Smells of dark licorice, sweet raisins and wood. Really good stuff. Just below average on the prickling carbonation level and it has a thick oily texture in the mouth. Much the same in the taste: Raisins and rum. I get wood, sweet caramel and itís also a little salty. Superb stuff. nothing more to say. 19.06.2015

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Deep reddish-brown pour, murky, with a small head. Aroma is quite sweet, caramel and raisin, some berry notes, slightly bready. Taste is sweet up front, lots of berry notes and raisin, really flavourful and fruity. Finishes with a slight bitterness to balance and manages to not be too cloying despite a thick, oily texture and a lot of sweetness. Some coffee in the aftertaste. Amazing for the style, complex and really delicious brew.
