Bottle at KØ15. Fruity, oxidised old-smelling aroma. Clear dark amber colour. Almost no head. The flavour is a lot like the aroma. Malty, but tastes quite old. Not my cup of beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle. 2011. Thanks to Jukka. HHOK XV.
Clear copper colour with a small off-white head.
Lagery aroma with malt, bread, nuts, woody dryness and mild buttery sweetness. Mild bitterness, alcohol and woody dryness in the flavour. Lagery. Not very good. Quite regular strong English Ale with a ridiculous price tag.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl bottle vintage 2011 @ wPBF’13
Aroma has harsh malt, toffee and English hops. Flavour has woody notes, toffee, English hops, harsh malt and nuts. Also some warming alcohol and honey. A bit foamy palate. A basic English strong with absurd price tag (42€).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle @ WPBF 2013.
Pours a copper colour with a white head. Aroma of caramel malts, English hops and some wood. Flavour of caramel malts, honey, strong dry wood, English hops, some tartness and berries. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel and a dry, malty finish. Nice, but too English for me.
