3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle split at Bruce’s pad, big thanks to Leighton for another Wild hook up, 16/01/14.
HAzed chestnut brown/dark amber with a thin light beige cover that dissipates to spotting and edgework.
Nose is oaky woody light booze lick, dark fruits, sugars, not a whole lot of depth.
Taste comprises dark toffee, hint of spice, dark fruit mash, prunes, dates, bitter fruit notes, oaky, light booze.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying closure with tangy fruit resonance.
Ok barley wine, never to be a world beater but the sweetness is well tempered and doesn’t run away and steal the show.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle from Kris Wines. Oh my. That sweet brandy aroma really is something else. Had to put off the first sip so I could soak up even more. Tongue numbingly strong, had me dizzy before I’d gotten half way through. The brandy influence permeates the entire beer to create a warming, rich, boozy taste primed for swirling round the glass and sniffing in front of a roaring fire. Marvellous stuff.

Pleasant hazy, murky reddy/brown in colour. Soft in the mouth some overipe figs, goes down surprisingly well for its abv, not too sweet, its pretty good. Definately woody throughout but there is a fruity tang albeit very subtle. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov14 3.6
