3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ CBC 1st Birthday Party. Deep amber with a tiny white head. The nose is honeyed herbs, sage, mint leaves, strawberry and thyme. Floral indeed. The taste is herbal hops and honey, some red apple. Tangy light pineapple cheese yeast. Full bodied, a real sipper. Certainly a bit hot. OK.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 26 Nov 2011) Amber colour with brief, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with dried fruit, citrus, resin and hints of oak wood. Malty, fruity taste with notes of citrus, caramel, resin, oak wood and a bitter-sweet finish with hints of orange marmalade. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness and a generous bitterness. Quite well balanced for a dry hopped barley wine. Very nice and tasty.

The taste is wood, golden syrup, honey, alcohol warmth, leather, nut, fresh hop, floral, plum and tinned nectarine, with a long warming, dry finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Ok, but a bit thin for this style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap (@The Flower Pot, Maidstone, Kent, U.K.): Clear, deep golden, no head to speak of, sherry-like nose: dried fruits, cellary and caramelly notes, wood and yeast included; solid dry bitter-sweet flavour, full bodied as expected; very vinous bitter-sweet finish: almonds, old wine, cellar, mould with hops sticking to the palate for more than 30 minutes! (this was my last beer in Maidstone, I could feel the hops ’til I reached my hotel-room!!!) Great hybrid-brew, it is hard to say, if it is a beer or a wine......
