Hazy amber pour with small off white head. Aroma of fruit, spice, caramel, citrus and grapefruit. Taste of caramel, peach, toffee, lemon citrus, brett and touch of bitter hops. Lots going on in this one, sweet, sour, citrus,brett, and bitter. Interesting and good beer, alcohol well hidden.

Bottle from a local shop. Big malty barleywine aroma & flavor. Didn’t really pick up too much Brett, maybe it needed some more time. Good beer, nothing totally stand out to me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle I purchased in 2011. Held on to this on a whim. Pours a dark, thick, golden color. Lots of carbonation. I poured too fast and made a small mess. Looks and smells (and tastes) like a barleywine. Honey, toffee, cloves in the nose. A slightly syrupy feel, and lots of caramel and toffee in the taste. A little sweet, and little burning, bold flavors but still mellow. This tastes terrific!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
An attractive ruby reddish amber. Large frothy tan head. Aroma is overripe red fruity, a touch of dark fruity, a hint of alcohol, a little spiciness, a bit of toffee. Flavor is much the same. Full body. More alcohol than in the nose. Finish is moderately dry. Soft and creamy. Very nice

Sweet and malty aroma and flavor. Slight funk but mostly sweet and malty. Get some Belgian yeast flavors to this one. Actually quite good.

Bottle shared with friends. Pours clear amber with a pale head. Nose is malt, banana, bread. Mouthfeel is creamy. Taste was an odd, bittersweet flavor with some sour notes; maybe we got an infected bottle?

Bottle from the Euston Tap, London. Poured a clear, dark brown colour, with a dense off-white head. Aroma of dark fruit, cloves and treacle. Fruity flavours, syrup and gentle hop bitterness. Very nice, full mouth feel. Finish was peppery hop, tinned fruit and citrus peal.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a a huge frothy tan head on there. Nose has that characteristic sweetness of the Belgian yeast, as well as a little bread in there and some slight candy. Taste is also rather sweet, with some hints of toast and a bit of a bite.
