3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gravity cask at Bree Louise. Dark brown, some sediment floating around, small white head. Aroma - chocolate, malts, esters. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste - treacle, thin gravy, fig. Alcoholic finish. OK - for me it’s an old ale rather than a barley wine as stated on Ratebeer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. Clear red copper, tan foam vanishes. Pungent toffee malty aroma and taste, caramel cola, vinous dark fruitiness, mild earthy spiciness, smooth and a little slick. Soft to flat carbonation, medium-full bodied, moderately hopped. ABV well hidden, port-ish finish. Nice enough easy drinking English Strong Ale, but still: DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)
