Cask at GBBF 2015. It pours clear brown with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, musty, brown bread, leather, varnish, pine needles, spice, sulphur and fart. The taste is smooth, rich, woody, leather, caramel, piney varnish, spicy edge, old leather sofa, alcohol boost and toast with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Interesting and rich.

On tap at Bailey’s Taproom. Colour...medium gold with a thick white head. Nose...malty and somewhat fruity with husky and grassy notes as well. Palate...hmmmm...seems higher in abv than that which is stated. In fact, this seems almost like a junior barley wine. However the flavour complexity is rather narrowly focused with creamed corn, malt powder and some boiled sweets.

"damn - another big beer and another winner from Central Waters. This was the nightcap to our DIPA tasting and boy, did it hit the spot. I’m probably being stingy with my score. Great (surprisingly easy drinking!) blend of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit and cherries, and roasted malt in both the flavor and aroma. looked a little lite in color, but was super smooth and delicious, with a tight head that lasted. great beer - thanks John! I gotta try me a Bells one day!!!"

Luvystypotables (1125) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Aroma of malt and sour dough. No head, cloudy dark caramel colour. A bitter taste of malt with a hint of nuts. A watery feel with a sour, bitter finish.

SDalkoholic (2237) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a thick pillow of foamy head while the liquid was a dense golden honey color and showed sign of sediment. I was surprised the aroma wasn’t as bold and aromatic seeing how this was the XS version of the original Younger’s special bitter, but there was a fair amount of sweetened scents of refined sugar cane and a squeeze of light citrus inspired hops. The flavor is bitter with a delicate touch of hops and a background of honey oat bread like malts.

7oz Bottle: Poured a murky orange with off white head. Aroma is sweet candy. Taste is not very bitter seemed sweet malty to me.
