4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle @ the 3rd Shrewsbury Bottle Share March 2014, courtesy of Paulo. I think this was the only beer we could all agree was fantastic. Complex, earthy barley wine with some strong alcohol and some lovely dark fruits. Great stuff, and my first from this brewery.

I am disappointed. This one gets great ratings but has no barely wine taste or smell. Ruby red in color with mild head and lacing. I am ready to move on to the next beer!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle, sent from Gregg657 (thanks a lot, Pete), pours a caramel / dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out caramel, dark fruits, toffee, and bready malts. Flavour brings out toffee, dark dried fruits, and caramel bready malts. Very well-balanced, with perfect sweetness and the alcohol is well-situated. Great stuff.
