Infinitely complex in aroma and flavor with notes of maltiness and tartness throughout. An unsurpassed old brown with the richness and complexity of a vintage wine.

Beautiful lactic sour, dark fruit, and oaky wood aroma. Taste is very full flavored. Sour is muted compared to some sours, maybe 3 or 4 of 10 sour. Great balance, great woody flavors. Some finishing sweetness that tastes like it comes from the wood. Very complex ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Recht dunkle, colaähnliche Farbe mit fingerdickem Schaum. In der Nase Champagner, Wein, Früchte, etwas alkoholisch aber sehr komplex. Säuerlich am Gaumen mit schönen Champagnernoten und ausgeprägten,sommerlichen Früchten. Tolle Kohlensäure und schön abgerundet.

Garrold (1236) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle from Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear, dark, reddy brown. Film and halo of tan head. Sour cherry. Kirsch. Brown bread, grainy maltiness. Light bonfire toffee. Some dried vinous fruit in there, too. Taste is light sour. Boozy sweetness. An apple core dryness and bitterness, gives balance. Palate is smooth. Finish is dry and tart, with a little lingering, fruity sweetness.

Birra di grandissima complessità, lo si vede anche dall’aroma. In bocca si percepisce subito un agrodolce, o più che altro acido, per poi evolvere verso la fine in un affumicato e tostato di classe, che ricorda un whisky. Purtroppo è decisamente acida per i miei gusti. Ma a chi l’acido non dispiace, decisamente la consiglio.

Tap: brown color with some red hues. Light brown frothy head that sticks around the edge for quite a while with some spotty lacing. Sweet tart apple aroma with a smooth feel and acidic vinegar flavor finish. This vinegar is mainly in the aftertaste. Other flavors I noticed were rubber, tart raspberry, with some flat cola. Overall, pretty awesome.

Ein erstaunliches Gebräu, das in seiner Konsistenz stellenweise an Pflaumensirup erinnert und gewisse Aromen davon auch in sich trägt. Fruchtig und dick ist es, mit einer Menge Bumms und einer gewissen Säure. Zum Schluss hin kommt wieder der Pflaumensirup und rundet es gar etwas kernig und herb ab.

Draft - Sour cherry, balsamic and some light oak. Dirty brown with a rich beige head. Tart sweet cherry, nice long finish. Not bad, hits all the right notes.
