Ibrew2or3 (7310) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2015
37.5cl bottle pours with a nearly clear deep copper body that supports a micro thin off white head. The aroma offers up nectar sweet malts, crusty molasses, honey like sweetness, a bit of cider and then some booze. The taste begins with sweet smooth nectar like malts and not so smooth boozy notes. It stays silky smooth and sweet right into the finish. It is a little rough around the edges with booziness but it is still a tasty sipper.

thornecb (4689) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 16, 2015
Pours gold into a tulip. Head quickly recedes to nothing. Dark pit fruit and caramel aromas. Soft with sweet caramel and bananas flame upfront turning quite hot in the lasting earthy nut finish.

Theydon_Bois (11420) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2015
Bottle split at Chriso Easter tasting, thanks to Kenny, 04/04/15. Hazed orange amber topped with a moderate off White swirl. Nose is earthy, dark fruit rinds, light spice, biscuit, orange marmalade, macadamia nuts. Taste comprises bitter orange, dates, prunes, gran mariner notes, fruit cake mix. Full bodied, fine carbonation, drying close with warming alcohol. Ok BW, drinking well below the ABV but a touch unrefined.

ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Hazy gold beer, small off white head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Spice. Sweet malts. Trace of vanilla. Dried fruits, turning tangy. Some heat, but not in proportion to it’s giant abv. Light semi dry finish. Spicy linger.

Scopey (8248) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Bottle at ChrisO. Thanks to Kenny.... It pours clear gold with a tiny white head. The nose is rather sweet, earthy, toasty, dried fruits, dried apricot, juicy, pear and apple pie. The taste is sweet, earthy, warming booze, cereal, leather, spice, alcohol, apple, over-ripe pear, caramel and tart tatin. Full body, fine, prickly carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Hot and oily. Not quite the depth I had hoped for. So-so.

The_Osprey (2757) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Bottle share at ChrisO’s. Hazy orange, still, cloudy, no real head to it. Aroma is sherry, vinegar, apple. Holy communion wine according to Teresa. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is biscuity malts, sweet sherry, a little lemon with plenty of booze (although not drinking like it’s 19.3%). Not bad for a style that’s not my bag.
