COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the fusion of young and old, grain and fruit, tradition and innovation. We skillfully blended this vintage from our Old Ale matured in barrels previously used to age Somerset Cider Brandy. The result is stunning - a drink of huge depth and complexity.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours dark, almost black in glass, thin brown head. Smell of funk, apple, some kind of brandy, dark malts. Moderate sweet, oaky, some boozes tendensies, and a maltbase that adds some dark fruits. On top of this lies a pleasent apple flavor, just blending in white the more heavy flavors. A tiny hint of funk is there but not as present as in the aroma. Ends off with a medium to heavy bitter finish with fruit peel and a hint of tannin, Very cool beer; i think it’s a blast!

Bottle shared at RBESG 2014 Grand Tasting. Opaque black color, decent sized beige to light brown head. Smell and taste malts, a little sweetness, a hint of alcohol, slightly roast. Decent stout! Nothing special. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottle, 66cl. A dark brown beer, looking unclear, and topped by a small, dark beige head. The aroma has roasted malts, salty licorice, some coffee grit and burnt down bonfire, hints of dried fruits and a little berryish sourness. Oak notes and a faint touch of booze. It’s a tad thin on the body, still far from watery, with a soft carbonation level. The flavor has more oak than the aroma, with roasted malts, berries, dark chocolate, brandy, hints of vinegar-ish cider and raisins. Lasting roasted and vinous, almost boozy finish. Berries, dark chocolate and bonfire chimes in. Sure a complex one, lots of fine flavors and aromas. Probably the first time I taste a beer aged in cider brandy barrels. I like it. More and more as it warms up and I drink it. 140620

Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, chocolate, alcohol, hint of dried fruits, oak and berries. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter and light sour with a long warm, woody, fruity and chocolate finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is almost flat..

Torrefacto (532) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 15, 2014
Color negro con reflejos rubí y leve espuma beige que practicamente no aparece. Aroma de frutas confitadas, licor, brandy, tostados. Cuerpo denso-medio, sabor dulce licoroso y afrutado, que pasa a madera en un final moderadamente seco. Excelente.

0.6l bottle. Not even a hint of a swoosh when popping the cap on this one, and the head is a good as - or more precise totally absent. I’m going on a limb here and assuming that this will be one within the soft-carbonation category... Only a few scattered translucent bubbles on top of a deep dark licorice brown/black body. I smell lots of wood, sweet herbs, a little bit of licorice, dark fruits and some smoky hints in the back. A bit mild and definitely gentle, not bad though. Hmm.. This does not taste all that good to be honest. As good as dead flat on the bubbles as expected and it feels light oily in the mouth. Really woody and dusty in the taste. Old licorice, a good amount of sharp booze, some strange unbalanced smoky/rope thing and it’s drying out my mouth in a unnatural way. There’s no way I can finish this. A huge let down. *edit* Well, I did finish it, but it did not get any better.. Not much anyways. 27.11.2013

Opaque dark brown beer, short tan head. Palate is semi dry and very lightly crisp. Mild smooth dark malts. Touch of unsweet dark chocolate. This year the apple brandy infusion is flavoursome and yet mellow. It tastes of, well duh, little light apple and mellow winey brandy. Light finish. Nicely joined up and pretty drinkable.
