On tap at Crowbar ... and it resembles a very nice and fruity white wine. Gooseberries, crisp apples. Hazy brass. Vinous has another meaning in the beer language, but you get my drift. Bull’s eye, a great single hop.

Bottle. I was a little disappointed by this one. The pumpkin part was great. Nice orange color. Not much head. Aroma and taste was pumpkin pie right on but the high gravity was not hidden. In fact the alcohol kind of smacks you right in the month. Still not a bad beer.

On tap at Cafe Sara. Quite balanced bittersweet, but too many etsers to make this really work. It gets sweeter and more cloying as I drink, does not win me over. Try again.

CAsk @ The Willow Walk, Victoria, London. Malty body, grass and grapefruit. Light, sessionable. Scotch maltiness, there is no surprise that Caldeonain has brewed this. More surprising that Stone has put their name on a rather standard British bitter, with none of their trademark daringness.

12 oz. bottle, pours a murky dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma is certainly wintery, with notes of toffee, caramel, slight spicy hops, and vanilla. Flavour brings out wonderful toffee sweetness, with just enough spiciness to balance, along with a touch of vanilla. A big malty winter warmer here with everything in perfect balance, maintaining extremely high drinkability. Really well-executed here - excellent.

This is a really nice beer! Poured at a good temperature with decent sized, foamy, cream-colored head that settled after a bit and lots of lace. Color is a clear yellow with several lazy bubble trails. Aroma is primarily hops, plus citrus, yeast, spice. Flavor’s like nose, also has bold carbonic tang that works well with the hop bitter, quite dry, and clean. Body is just right with bright carbonation. Finish is like flavor, of average length, and very drinkable.

Pours pitch black with a foamy tan head. Aroma is of dark roasted/burnt malts, coffee, toffee, caramel, figs, and more. Flavor profile matches the aroma but is infinitely more complex yet subtle at the same time. A great, robust beer that will put hair on your chest. Rasputin would definitely approve of this.

bomber into a wine glass Clear caramel amber color. Good half finger of white head. Sticky and leaves nice lacing. Nose is grapefruit and pine. Very dank and bitter nose. Good caramel nose. Taste is very bitter, dank and pungent. Pine, grapefruit, orange and a lot of peel to go along with that. Oily, yet dry. Big and bold. Highly bitter and aggressive but quite nice.
