Beerwithwings (1254) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2018
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2018 Bottle at home this is the 2014 version which I've just got round to opening. Also bought this the breweries shop. Pours brown with no head. Is malty with a bit of a kick at the back. Isn't bad this from someone who doesn't drink barley wines

BeardedAvenger (2374) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2018
Bottle from the brewery shop. Fruity raisens and spice aroma. Opaque treacle brown. Beige head soon fades to a few whisps. Light bitter with a sour streak. Raisens and spices come through at first but it quickly develops a boozy quinine streak. Medium bodied. Slick. Average carbonation. Long astringent finish. To be frank, it's not really ticking boxes for me. The bitter boozy steak just overpower everything. Disappoint for what is supposed to be one of the brewery"s better beers.

Grumbo (7839) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2018
Bottle from Inn at Home, Guildford. Pours red/brown with a lasting bubbly off-white head. Aroma of malt, toffee, syrup, dark fruit, chocolate, alcohol and bread. Medium plus sweetness, moderate bitterness, hint of sour. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation.

Deonis (34) - Moscow, RUSSIA - AUG 3, 2016
the foam a little bright bitterness and then a little sweetness, long aftertaste with bitterness, something not enough recommend

jimbonga (144) - - APR 23, 2016
Bottle. Deep mahogany colour. Aromas (over Tongham?) of raisins, caramel and sherry. Caramel malts with more raisin and dark, dried fruit. Quite vinous. Bit of booze to it. Fairly sweet with just a hint of bitterness in the finish.

lokis333 (816) - Bir�ai, LITHUANIA - APR 5, 2016
Clear deep dark brown chestnut color with small oak colored foam. Aromas really remind me of mead! Bit boozy, fruity and honey and has this manily malty base I guess but really does remind of mead. Palate, full body, very thick, heavy and mouth coating texture, leaves boozy, fruity and aged finish. Taste is on the boozy side, quite strong, has hints of dried fruit, aged beer, and sure is quite potent. Overall, quite nice beer, very thick and heavy and strong! Would definatly recomend to try.
