2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A lightly unclear amber colored beer topped by a small, dense, light beige head. Fruity aroma with caramel malts, rather weak and one dimensional. It’s full-bodied, warming and smooth on the palate, with caramel, nuts, some piney hops and a citrus touch. Bitterness. Alcohol. Long finish. Started out in a nice way, but that was just the first whiff. Rather uninteresting actually. 150724

Gravity pour at Brewmasters Theatre of Beer, Clapham. Pours cloudy amber with no head. Light sour citrus aroma. Eggy, puniness with citrus stuff... Infected I guess - it tasted awful. Rancid.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Pigs Ear and drunk at home. Clear dark ruby amber. Lasting beige head. Sweet barley wine aroma. Golden syrup. I mean it’s a barley wine, some hoppiness on the finish. Sweetish, dryish, hoppyish. Fine. Just not enormously interesting but there is some orange fruits. OK.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle - thanks VastActive and the crowd from Hel!
Initially a rather off aroma, something a bit vomitty in the first sniff which transitions to something more pissy or crotchy in the second sniff. Very oxidised. Looked a nice copper, but was a bit flat. Fairly thin palate, rich malts to the fore. As it warms, the aroma improves significantly, becoming righly malty. Strange BW.
