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."

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.

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

Thanks to Phil_l for this at Pre ZBF 2010. Very dark brown, lasting tan head. Pretty good malts on this. Not a lot of the promised cider brandy, a little maybe. Good malts though.
