Pours a deep dark brown with a nice fluffy tan head. Aroma of malt and dark fruit. Taste is a little bitter, a little off. Maybe a bad bottle....

July 2007 - Dark brown chestnut pour with moderate head and lacing. Musty aroma, not altogether pleasant, but there. Sweet, bordering on overly so. Lots of scottish ale type sticky, really sweet smokey malts, with a syrupy mouthfeel with a kind of tinny aftertaste that sort of detracted a bit. Maybe it was a spice, I don’t know. Mild spicing. Good, but not great.

750ml bottle. 2006 edition sampled in March 2008. Very murky reddish-brown color. Still retains a good head on it, perhaps not as over the top as a fresh bottle. Highly reminiscent of a Barleywine, but with a more elegant herbal and spice finish. Sweet and full bodied, with a nice warming finish. Hardcore.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2008 2007 Bottle 75 cl. Pours a reddish brown colour with a tan head. Very malty on the nose, with spices, golden syrup and orange flavoured caramel.
Rather sweet taste. Malty with yeast, spices, some orange and dried fruits. The alcohol is warmning. The finish is yeasty.
