Pours hazy, dark amber color with small head. Aroma of ripe dark fruits, plums, raisins, caramel malts, hops, toffee notes, mild vanilla and earth. Flavor of dark ripe fruits, sugar candy, caramel malts, toffee, distant hints of vegetables, wood, earth and yeast. A bit harsh bitterness on the palate, short, sweetish aftertaste with a dry finish.

50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 14.08.2012
Aroma is sweet and fruity with hops and resin – feels actually very much like typical american barley wine. Also hints of hay and vanilla. Flavour is somewhat hoppy and sweet with hay, grain, some fruits and hints of cardboard. A bit too sweet and sticky, but I guess it wouldn’t improve from this point anyway.

Deep amber with a medium white head. Sweet aroma and taste. Malt, toffee, dried fruit, good balance. Nothing sensational but pleasantly drinkable. The finish had some warming alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at The Cad’s Pure Mad Rocket Mon The Beezer Tasting. Pours a cloudy, reddish-brown with a light film. Rich, aged malts with bread, toffee and caramel in the nose. Flavor not quite as nice as the aroma. Lightly sweet, with some modest caramel, sweet bread, honey, malts, and very light bitterness. Medium in body with fine, tingly carbonation and alcohol warmth. Has a sweet finish with strong notes of toffee and malts, tingly booze in the mouth and throat. Interesting, pretty good.
