COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Bottle shared during the Grand Tasting of RBWG 2015. Pours clear chestnut with a foamy head. Pretty hearty, with lots of tangy and ripe fruits, berries, caramel. Medium sweet flavor, pretty oily and tangy. Lots of oxidation present in the finish with old fruits, berries in particular, some uninspiring caramel. Must be pretty old. Interesting, but thatís about it.

chinchill (2558) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Hazy reddish-brown with a weak head. Strong unattractive aroma much like a few other old ales, if a bit stronger. Very low carbonation. Medium-full body. O: recommended only for fans of the style.

Poured a brownish color with aromas of bread and caramel malt. Flavors matched the aromas with a light chemical flavor unfortunately itís not the worst out there but this isnít middle of the road either.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 22, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2014 THOUGHTS: Hid alcohol content completely. The most intense beer Iíve ever tried. Very flat, but good. A life changing experience. Honestly somewhere beyond words. TECHNICAL: Drank 3/29/2013. Bottle. Poured a muddy, medium brown that was beyond opaque. It almost seemed to absorb light. It looked like dark apple cider with no head. The aroma contained almost everything. There was moderate caramel; heavy leathery, soapy, cheesy, earthy and funky yeast; McIntosh apples; slight vanilla; wood; vinegar; sherry; bourbon; sour citrus fruits; lemons; overripe fruit, nearly rotten fruit when very warm; and somehow salt. The initial flavor was sour, salty, acetic, lightly sweet and moderately acidic; while the finish was sour, acetic, salty, lightly sweet and slightly bitter. There was salted caramel and toffee, sour apple, lemon, bourbon, wood, plum, prune, raisin, sour grapes, sherry, funky yeast and leather. The medium to full body was oily and then dry with ever so slight if any carbonation and a heavily astringent, very dry and ever so slightly alcoholic finish.

750 mL bottle. Poured murky brown with no head. The aroma picked up sour vinegar, cooking sherry, and medicine.. oak and funky Brett rounded it out.. not at all appealing. The flavor wasnít any better.. sour fruit skins, vinegar, and berries throughout.. I couldnít find the barley wine I love in there.. tacky, funky, dry and sour finish. Heavier-bodied and syrupy on the palate with no carbonation.. sour, funky, and very hard to drink.
