4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle conditioned, 250ml, 2003 edition No. 02269 from Abbey Stores, Salisbury (now closed). Chestnut to auburn with short lived head. Super rich palate, full on with a barley sugar fruitiness, some treacle, some sherry flavours. The alcohol is present even with 10 years of ageing, but this gives it the required depth of flavour rather than burning the palate. Plums and sultanas are all amalgamated in to the mix. A beautiful beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2014 2004 version. Sugary aroma with plums, just a touch of oak and hops. Very sweet, sugary flavor with pepper, grassy hops and burning alcohol, though partly hidden by the sweetness. Hint of oak. Thick and oily mouthfeel. Tasty beer, with a complex aroma. Has potential, but need further cellaring. This sample was too young.
2007 bottle, tasted July 2014. Dark brown color, no head. Malty biscuity sherry aroma. Still hints of hops present. Syrupy flavor, almost without carbon. Alcohol, malt and floral notes. Sherry. oak. Very nice.
