3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
660ml bomber shared @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, May 15, courtesy of Simon. Pours a deep, hazy orange, minimal head. Tropical yoghurt aroma. For a 12%er this wasn’t quite as boozy as expected. Prominent fruity citrus and dried fruits. Quite drinkable for the ABV.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with Barry, purchased from Cotteridge, consumed at home Friday 15th May 2015 Hazy gold actually very much hazy. Thick in mouth, real pithy, and yet also sweetness is there. Fruity with a clear citrus element (sweet orange) but as already stated rather pithy in that respect. A little sherry and really warming, yes it’s a strong beer but it’s very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. It pours hazy orange with a medium off white head. The aroma is apricot, oak, hops, sweet malts and orange marmalade. Boozy malty flavor. Lots of fruits and oak. Hops kicking in at the end. Interesting but hard to actually drink more than just a few glasses.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
660 ml bottle, thanks me, myself & I. Pours a dark orange colour with a small white head. Aroma of sweet caramel, raisins, sweet orange and wood. Flavour of strong sweet caramel, rubber, wood, orange juice, raisin and strong boozy notes. Full bodied and a strong, sweet, wooden and burning alcohol finish. Not very well balanced. Un-human was much better as-is.
