3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Impexbeer
SELL BY 08/2014 - Pours dark amber orange with a tiny bubbly head. Aroma of juicy fruity hoppiness, yeast, toffee, fudge and caramely notes. Taste is sweet, malty and hoppy with loads of bitterness, sweet caramel, toffee and juicy notes. Finish is sweet, slightly boozy and malty and juicy with loads of hops, sweet caramel and yeasty toffee notes. A bit unbalanced, a tad too sweet and malty and the hoppiness is more subtle than expected.

A strong punch in the nose.
A,ber beer, lots of malt, balanced by intense herbal and bitter hops. Not much of an alcohol feel, surprisingly well masked. Lots of everything.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ WWT II. Clear dark amber, headless pour. Aroma is sweet caramel hops, almost a wine character. Flavour is perfect balance between the hops and the malt, carried by a light alcoholic character. Despite this being 13%, it drinks like 9%. This is sweet and incredible hoppy at the same time. Awesome brew!

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Clear deep mahogany with red hues and a small head.

Heavy, cloying, not easy do drink and feels like a barley wine.
