7 oz bottle of indeterminate age.....
Pours chestnut brown with only an island of thin soap-like tan head into snifter...
Nose is toffee, sugar, dark fruit/raisin.
Taste is quite malty, sourish caramel.
A dry, almost salty aspect to it.
Very nutty as it warms..oily...
Decent, but not a big fan of this one.

Great red ale, one of the best I’ve had. Smell is sweet and malty. Tastes like caramel and a tiny bit of hops. Small bitter finish.

Poured from a 7 ounce bottle into a brandy snifter. Appearance is a murky brown with a thin, quickly diminishing head of grey-ish foam. This beer looks like its be stored in a dirty sock. Aroma is fairly indicative of a nice barley wine. Malty to the point of candied fruits and chocolate notes with a hint of booze to back-up the candy note. The taste is...interesting. I’m on the verge of saying stale, but something makes me think it isn’t. It’s not all that sweet. It has a bit of a Cavendish flavor to it. In that regard, this beer would pair nicely with a cigar. Palate is dry and robust.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
7 oz pony bottle from Blue Dog. I cannot believe this one is a new rate. Pours very thick and turbid ruby rusty colored with 1-finger khaki head. Nose is resiny hops, orange marmalade, dusty yeast esters, raisins, almonds, and cacao. The nose is like a barleywine. Tastes fruity, dry and floral, with a yeasty malt up front, fruity citrus marmalade at mid-palate, and a hoppy, rich, complex, yeasty malty fade, with some warming heat late. This one holds its own, and is very good.

Notes a caramel. Poca retenció d’escuma. Una mica massa alcoholica per tenir només 9 graus. Bona, però massa cara.
