3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle... medium bright brown with a yellowish tan head, lasting lace... the aroma was a bit dead, molasses, caramel, alcohol... this needs some time, this was really hot, way too much alcohol, a bit of brown sugar, dark fruits, a bit of chalk, nothing wrong with it, just didnít really impress me, needed to be sweeter to hide the alcohol

Amber mahogany in color... Aroma of hazelnuts, vanilla, raisins, and Belgian candi sugar... Flavor is a little off initially, some heat with candi sugar, toffee, dark fruits, finishes with smoke and roasted malt notes... Okay

Bottle, thanks Eddan.
Clear dark reddish/brown with a small head. Sweet with fruit, toffee, alcohol and malt. The body was medium and the finish was quite long. A descent one.

Sweet malty beer, but in a good way. Sugary and fruity, with some nice spices.

@zebf 2014 - Clear brown appearance. Aroma is boozy, sweet and reminds me of fruity cake. Itís a very sweet beer but remains palatable.

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.
