3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a bubbly, white head. This is a big boy. Definitely some alcohol kick, a bit of honey, rich bread. Punchy. Full bodied with fine carbonation; and oily. Warming finish with bready malts, ripe fruits, booze and mild caramel. Tasty but perhaps a bit too bold.

Cask at GBBF 2012. Poured a cloudy amber, with a halo of off white head. Aroma of butterscotch, booze soaked fruits and grain. Tinned fruit in the flavour, with some spice and herbal notes. Finish was nicely balanced dried fruit, hop resin and warming booze.

Crimson pour, not much head. Nose has a dessert wine, creamy caramel and sweet corn with a touch of whiskey. Sweet, really refined taste.You get this oxidized tongue coating brandy or scotch. Mild burn at the finish. touch of rice and really sweet with a tough olive oil.

Batch 002 bottled about 2011. Clear amber/ red hue. No head. Aroma is dark fruit, sugar candy, plum and dates. I LoVE my barely wines slightly oxidized. The flavor is smooth and sweet with a mild sugary hint in the finish. ABV is nowhere to be found with a slick mouthfeel. A nice treat split with friends.

750ml bottle (batch 002) in a tulip. Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma of deep caramel and toffee malts, a lot of wheat, some spicy yeast, light bitterness, and hints of alcohol. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Smoother texture. A solid beer, but just not my favorite style.
