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.

Senka (914) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 27, 2014
66cl bottle@ 200 of beer session. Thx to FatPhil. Has so much potential, but is so over the reasonable price level for what it is actually is. Yes you get old ale, yes it is good, yes there are better than this brew.

FatPhil (10992) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 27, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2014 660ml bottle (the 200e of overpriced shit session)
Odd roast aroma. Touch of sourness. Taste very similar, rough malty roast, quite dirty (but it was a clear pour from a well-settled bottle). WTF?! Sharp and so fucking thin. All the complexity from the old ale has leeched away, wheres the fullness, wheres the breadiness of the grain? The ultimate example of barrel ageing ruining a beer. Fuck me. I spent 24e on this shit?!?! Overpriced vote 6/6.

fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle at Birratrovo, Como
Black color with generous beige head. Mild aroma of roasted malts, light yeast. Good body strength, the roasted malt flavor is not strong, some chocolate, and light fruity/acidic touch; correct bitterness; nutty finish.

McNeillR (1778) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Dark Cola brown, more or less headless with some greasy lacing. Bright boozy bubblegum, toffee apple and walnuts. Very plseantly vibrant throughout. Im sure I had this on cask. Wee bit cooler and palate, lightly spicy. Softest carbination but rolls into a slick burn. Lightest coconut, very soft and drinkable. Barrell comes through quite dryly, gloomy sweet. Linger is bright and a wee hit rubbery. Bottle, Cornelius.

oh6gdx (22834) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Bottled@PBF IX. More or less black ccolour, small brown head. Aroma is liquorice some alcohol and mild spices. Flavour is liquorice, alcohol, some metallic (bloody) notes. I did like what this was going to be, but not what it turned out to be (from the aroma pow).

olio (7840) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
66 cl bottle @ PBF IX.
Pours dark red-brown color with a small head. Some roasted malts and chocolate on the aroma, faint wooden notes also. A bit salty flavor, some malts, caramel and soy-like oily notes. Slick malty palate. Weird and a bit below my expectations.

tiong (4999) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
650ml bottle @PBF IX

Pours dark brown, almost black with a smooth head. Aroma of nutty malts, berries, wood, ripe fruits and syrup. Taste is sweetish, malty and woody with notes of ripe fruits, berries and syrup. Finish is stuffy and malty with some wood and berries. Okay.

TBone (14258) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle 660ml (PBF IX)
Dark brown color, small brown head. Slightly earthy, licorice aroma. Medium-bodied. Licorice, earthy flavors. A bit sweet in the finish. Suprisingly strong cellar flavor. Disappointing.

lusikka (7378) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
660 ml bottle @ PBF IX. Pours a dark brown colour with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, green apples, some sweetness and wood. Rich flavour of roasted malts, strong wooden tartness, caramel sweetness and apple core. Full bodied and a dry, apple, very tart wooden finish. Quite harsh and dry compared to 2012 version. Feels raw, at least for now.
