Bottle to glass. Pours a deep nut brown color with chunks of sediment and a big active light tan head. Aroma is tart, light malts. Flavor is a complex blend of light tartness and light bourbon, vanilla. Excellent lingering light tartness and bourbon notes. I’m blown away by the low ratings for this beer. It definitely deserves better. Very tasty.

Backlog rating. 75cl bottle at the Chriso’s May tasting, London. It pours a murky light brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet, biscuity and fruity, with notes of ripe apricots, apricots, jam, light tangy, bready, caramel, Taste is again sweet and fruity, lightly yeasty, notes of caramel, vanilla, dried apricots, ripe peaches, floral, lightly roasty. Light alcohol feeling in the finish. Medium bodied with ok carbonation. Overall, simple but tasty

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle... Hazy burnt-caramel pour with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The aroma offers notes of fuzzy stone-fruits, caramel, coconut and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is a bit off in its presentation of caramel, bourbon and woody- fruity- infected tanginess. Finishes lightly tart and tongue-numbing. Infected but not in an awful way. Maybe just the dawn of infection at this point. Glad we drank this sooner than later. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

On tap at 10 East. The beer has a murky brown body, minimal khaki head. Aroma has multiple layers. French toast, buttery, apricots, molasses, and oak. Caramel apple flavors dipped in apricot syrup, vanilla, and alcohol. Seems a bit unbalanced, but there’s enough going on that I enjoyed it.

Bottle shared at Chrisso’s May 2014 tasting 25/05/2014. Thanks to Kenny? Murky dark brown coloured pour with a stodgy off white head. Aroma is nice funky, horsey, and mineral notes. Flavour iscomposed of grape skins, grape tanin, apricot, light sharpness and nice funk and musty. Palate is effervescent, sharp touch of acid, and high carbonation.

"Hmmm. Not a lot of old ale to be had here, but the flavors and aromas left are quite interesting. I’ve never had a beer that smells so much like one thing and tastes like another, with each only having hints at the other. Smells like a wild ale...sour and acidic, fruity apricot/apple with a little vanilla and bourbon underneath. But the script is flipped in the flavor, being more sweet barrel, then fruit, with only a hint of the funk that promised to deliver big in the nose. It was almost like drinking two beers. Unique and tasty. Even though it was a gusher, the feel was actually quite nice and shows that every Bruery barrled beer doesn’t have to at least 15% :)"

Bottle shared at chriso’s May 2014 tasting - London. Pours mucky amber with a frothy off-white head and a small fleet of floaties. The nose is with with lightly tangy dark fruits, dates, blueberries. Medium sweet flavor with further tangy, ripening fruits, berries, light wood, jammy citrus. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish, a little dry and tannic, with lingering tangy fruits. Dynamic. Very good.
