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."

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2010 Had this at Pre ZBF March 5th 2010, big thanks to Phil L for bringing this along. Pours dark brown with a light beige head. The aroma is a touch musty but there is very definately some apple and a little coffee, also bit woody and vanilla, its soft in the mouth, and the barrel ageing shows with some spirity flavour’s starting to make their presence felt. Bloody nice stuff. A7 A4 F7 P3 Ov14 3.5 Had this again Bottle from Beer Merchants and consumed 24.12.10 Pours black with a few stray bubbles I served it a little cold at first but it warmed up and was significantly better. Chocolate, liquorice, vanilla combine with a wonderful appley fruitiness. Slightly oily sheen and body also oily. Wonderful roasty bitterness sits across the roof of the mouth. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

Easy drinking, moderate body, slightly apple-y, vinous/sherry flor notes. Black/ruby hues, amber/tan head, with soft carbonation. Slight woodsiness from the oak barrels. very balanced. Not thick monster barrely beer, and great to see use of local casks.
