COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"The always superb Old Freddie Walker dark ale serves as the base for this cask matured ale. Matured in Royal Somerset Brandy Casks, this beer is an absolute dream. Full, malty and with biterness superbly balanced by deep caramel and spiced apple flavours. As with all the Moor beers, generous hopping creates a long, lingering finish. This is a must for the beer connoisseurs amongst you. It’s expensive for sure but excellence comes at a price and we feel that it’s worth every penny."

Opaque black beer. Light brown head. Nice combination of malt, bubblegum and sweet apple on the nose. Palate is semi soft and semi dry. Sweet dark malt with unsweet bubblegum that slowly morphs in to something appley. Finishes semi dry and with more dark malt. Was really looking forward to this - a Cider Brandy barrel beer! The reality is the flavour is mostly malt and bubblegum. Decent enough.

thewolf (10770) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Beermerchants.com.
Pours opaque black with a small, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has chocolate, kinda fresh-feeling, brandy, oak, green apples. Medium carbonation, lovely dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is light oaky, roasted, chocolate, a bit sharp apple, coffee, clear oak, a bit of sugary caramel, light liqourice. No sign of age. Vinious. Super delicious and elegant.

2010-08-21, 7-4-7-3-15=36
Dark brown color, almost black. Aroma of chocolate, paper, ash, alcohol, caramel; initially unexciting, then getting better. Good chocolate flavor, with pleasant residual sweetness; light ashy, coffee trace; reasonable hopping, for an English beer; the final has some alcohol too. Very pleasant.

2010-06-04. RBESG 2010, bottle at Johnny’s Off License, Rome, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Black color; creamy head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, cheese rind, coffee, all mild. Good body strength, chocolate flavor, with light roasted malt, enough residual sweetness, salty liquorice, and an English touch that makes it more interesting. Warming alcohol. Good.

tdtm82 (668) - Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2010
Bottle, home. Poured into Budvar stein glass. Nice opaque appearance. Good dark lacing. Nice lasting aroma of brandy, figgs and dump warehouses. Interesting combination. Taste is very smokey, roasted malts, brandy, lots of big boozey notes shine through, some figgs, some caramel, some tough bready texture, lots of sweet candi sugar balancing the beer. Good balanced and interesting. Very nice take on brandy aging. Moor, please do something with whiskey. I am not a brandy person and would like this.

Oakes (11786) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2010
Dark brown, possibly muddy. Fruity aroma with apple notes, alcohol heat and some dark burnt sugars (Okinawa black). Soft body. Black sugar and raisins, with light fruitiness and a slight apple brandy note. Surprisingly mellow after that burly nose. This is a good treatment.
