4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A Mes rate. Bottle from god knows where, drunk by the fountains and the lake out the back of the Barbican.
A right bright amber colour with a decent off white head and a very slight haze. The nose is faintly oxidised with some faint cardboard. Don’t get me wrong though, it’s excellent. Glorious preserve jam, leather, burnt sugar, excellent deep malty tones and just all round interesting and sniffable. The flavour follows on well with a distinct oaky note and some superb caramel. Rich peppery alcohol but not at all over bearing. Complex yet balanced. Glorious palate, rich and chewy with just the right amount of carbonation to stop it sticking. Great stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (375ml) shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy orange-red with a large lasting fluffy off-white head -- nice! Aroma of oranges, herbs, some bubblegum, more fruit, alcohol, white wine, wood and more -- lots going on here. Flavour’s fruity and malty along with floral hops, alcohol, wood, yeast and herbs. Medium bodied. If it weren’t for the high alcohol this would almost be refreshing, but either way it’s really good stuff.
