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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
66 cl bottle @ home, no BBE info
Annual release 2013
Aroma is heavy sweet sherry tones, oak and some caramel. Flavour is sweet with stinging oaky tones, some alcohol and caramel. Surprisingly close to Emelisse BW Buffalo Trace even though this has been in sherry barrels. Quite far from Un-Human Cannonball. Like that Emelisse, this has potential but is too sweet and too oaky to be enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
66 cl bottle. 2013 version.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma is resinous with hops, some caramel and malts also, some plums, sherry and wood. Flavor of caramel malts, exotic fruits, very strong raisin, resin and some more caramel. Complex and full-bodied. A bit too strong with the raisin notes, otherwise quite nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013 release - Pours orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of wood, oak, caramely malts, hints of sherry and sweet syrup. Taste is malty, sweet and syrupy with notes of raisin, resinous hops and caramely toffee. Finish is sweet, syrupy and caramely malty with hints of sherry, wood and notes of raisin, ripe fruity hops and caramely toffee. Quite sweet and fruity barley wine with hints of sherry, very different compared to the fresh Un-Human Cannonball.
