Bottle @ The HUGE Tasting. The pour’s slightly hazy brown with a small head. The nose is sweet cherry pie. Cake batter. A bit of red wine barrel funk. Wild yeast. The taste is nicely bright peach meat. Some toffee-slathered wood. Buggy funk. Slightly earthy and hot. Medium body, soft carbonation. Pretty good.

Mega Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Very hazy red - brown beer, residual pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and dry. Light Worcester sauce sourness, sourish cherry, mellow fruity bourbon. Finishes light and dry with the sourness turning a little lemon acid. Overall, tasty but a bit sharp.

The taste is juicy, tart, tangy, cherry, big acidic kick, wood, jam, sherbet, some astringency, tart green apple and a lick of alcohol warmth with a dry, acidic finish, Medium+ body and fine, prickly carbonation. Good balance and actually hides the abv well. Nice work.

Bottle shared at the BIG Friday tasting, massive thanks to our Ken for sharing the entire track set and also to Bruce for providing the accompanying music 03/01/14.
Murky dark chestnut brown with a moderate light beige covering, a good representation of 4 day old festival toilet water, this beer is NOT a looker !
Nose is soured apricots, tarte fruit, caramel fudge, dank wood, light pepper.
Taste comprises tarte fruits, bitter apricot, dates, toffee fudge, light booze, musty, barnyard, funky dankness.
Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, surprisingly easy on the palate for 12.5%.
Decent sour, looks aside, alcohol well integrated.

Bottle shared during the Track Set interval of the Brokeback Revisited tasting in London. Cheers Kenny! Probably the best song of the track series too! Pours horrendously like mud though. But don’t worry, it’s all up hill from there. Nose is chock full of the dark fruits - dates, raisin, sticky toffee focus. Some bright citrus and caramel biscuit behind the mild funk. Very appealing stuff. Taste is big and juicy citrus fruits giving it a nice dose of sweetness, some toffee comes in and it’s a little woody and spice driven on the finish. A really balanced oaky vanilla feel to it throughout and some great vinous notes. Citrus is the winner here though. Sweet to sour with superb balance. Sensational stuff
