4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at wf coddingtown. Clear light toffee brown with minimal head...but what is that has tight carbonation. Sweet candied lighter toasted malt, hint of raw golden raisin, balanced bourbony oak. Sticky somewhat viscous mouth feel. Somewhat of a belgian barleywine...sweet maris otter malt, white candied sugar, vanilla, white oak. Well done and balanced for what it is.

Malty, fruity taste with notes of red berries, caramel, orange peel, candy sugar, dried fruit, rum raisins, oak wood and a smooth, sweet finish with a gentle bitterness. Full body, quite sweet. Well balanced for its strength. Very nice.

Bottle from Etre Gourmet. Pours almost clear dark golden with a small white head. Aroma of toffee malts, marmelade and fruit. Smooth creamy mouthfeel.Taste of spicy toffee malts, spices mixes very well with a light alcohol burn towards the end. A beer that caresses my mouth, not a ordinary beer, nice burn towards the end, with lingering toffee underneath. Good+
