5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
12 oz bottle. 2013 vintage. Holy smokes. The pour is like muddy lake water. There is no head to be found and as such, no lace either. The aroma is extraordinarily complex. There is a beautiful sweet toffee or caramel with dark fruits galore and a wonderful apple cider character. There are dominant figs and a light marshmallow-ey note. The flavor is just as complex. It starts off like the cider and roars through the labyrinth of dark fruits. The toffee comes through strong on the back end. The mouth feel is perfect. Thick, minimal carbonation, the flavors coat and cling to the tongue. The finish is a touch dry, with a light warming from the 13.5% ABV. Overall just an amazing beer

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.

Had this many times over the years, might as well rate it seeing as u had a really fantastic bottle last night at Scott’s .. . Deep caramel, burnt toffee, mild booze, and sherry eyes .. . Rich and boozy, but soft like the last morsel .. Legit beer .. . . When my boss gets mad, he throws things. Last week he destroyed a phone and a calculator..
