COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Only 2011 bottles have been produced of "Liberation 140" for the occasion. The brewery, originally based in Ann Street and now located at Longueville, started producing fine ales in 1871 and is now responsible for award winning beers such as the Liberation Ale and the renowned Mary Ann range.
Liberation 140 has been brewed using the finest quality British malts including Maris Otter, Centennial, Amarillo and Motueka hops provide the aroma which is robust, fruity and rich. At 7% it is a strong dark IPA which drinks easily but is not easily forgotten.
The limited production run will ensure that Liberation 140, in its special presentation bottle and case, will become a collectors’ item for beer connoisseurs.

Bottle provided by Cuso, many thanks :) Pours cloudy caramel brown liquid. Small tan head. Aroma, slightly cherry / candied fruits. Full body, soft carbonation. Taste is slightly malty / sweet, candied fruit, bitterness at the end. Hmm? I would perhaps drink more, but: I think, the color is not appropriate for the style and the taste was not very rich. Perhaps it was only my fault, that I was not set up right for the tasting. Cuso also told, that the bottle had some 2 years after bottling, so perhaps this is also the cause of my mediocre rating...

Gurthnar (2179) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle. Aroma pineapple, american hops. Amarillo probably. Deep ruby-brown colour. Taste has nice roasted malts, dark fruits, combined with fresh hoppy sensation of low intensity, which is to be expected at age of over 2 years. After these 2 years the beer is clean and rounded, very well drinkable. Moderate to higher carbonation. The hops is a bit weak, but clearly present.

Bottle provided by Cuso, many thanks! Herbal, floral, hoppy an roasted malt aroma. A beautiful combination! Taste is IPA like with dark chocolate coming from the roasted malt. Refrehing though the 7% abv. Definitely a damn good brew!
