Bottle from the brewery, and from memory. Golden color, light malt aroma, moderate head. Love the standard version of this beer, and like that everything is ramped up a bit with this version. One their best. Enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle. Cloudy amber colour with average, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Aroma has notes of toffee and caramel. Taste is malty, hints of toffee, caramel, a touch of nougat and nuts, bitter hoppy overtones. Surely not a bad beer, but I simply don’t like this combination of malty toffee-"ness" and hoppy bitterness, as is present in some Barley Wines too. Sorry.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 A bright amber color with a white head. Aroma contains some alcohol, rye, oranges, and caramel. The flavor is very sweet tons of reisn, alcohol, citrus, molasses. This is on the cloying side for sure. Try it once try it small and be done.

Smell is kinda dank, wet carpet, some malt and alcohol, then a bit of tropical fruit/banana. Bitterness builds up with alpha hop flavours. Ok

Pours amber. Aroma is light with some caramel and malt. Taste starts a little sweet, almost like tea, and then turns bitter with some hops and dry malts. Biter taste lingers for a long time (longer than most).

On tap @GarricksHeadPub. Red/orange body with frothy tan head. Caramel, grainy malt, food colouring, hazelnut, honey, mixed fruit. Rich and dessert-like. Strong alcohol burn with a big, bitter finish. Not bad.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Taste like Oakes dead guy. Meaning the finish is a little drier and there is almost a tannin taste. Definitely sweet and malty up front. Smells like an old bar or fraternity basement after a party, musty with a hint of malt and hops. Great beer.

Hops not over powering. Full body mouth feel. Tiny bit of sweet to marry with the bitter. Well crafted beer.
