3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
27th December 2011
Very hazy dark red beer. A few pale tan bubbles for a residual and short lived head. Smooth palate with low carbonation. Semi dry. Rich and fruity quad! Tangy dark fruits and caramel malt with the familiar rich vanilla and oak. Pretty well joined up. Dry finish with a tangy fruit linger. Could have been really good but the beer is too flat.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl, corked. Almost see-through, copper in color and almost headless. Quite alcoholic on the nose, with dried fruits, caramel and sugar. It’s very warming on the palate, with a nice bitterness and a bit too much sugary sweetness. Dried fruits, dark plum notes and dark sugars. Lasting finish with lots of warmth. Overall, quite nice, but it’s too warming and sugary. 110820

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is dark amber in color with a finger of off-white head.
S: I don’t get the same overwhelming oak aroma to this beer that I associate with the Woodcut series. Lots of caramel and toffee, brown sugar and some vanilla. A touch of dark fruits and just a bit of alcohol.
T: The wood shows up more on the palate than it did on the nose. Lots of brown sugar, caramel, and dark fruits with a bit of booziness. Some light vanilla on the finish, too.
M: Medium to full in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Definitely strong and you have to dig the oak. But, it’s not as over-the-top as some of the other releases.
