COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
My idea of a strong ale was brewed with loads of malt, hops, jaggery and a touch of manuka smoke.
It was fermented with a clean ale yeast to let the ingredients speak for themselves without getting interrupted by too many esters.
After all that it was aged for 5 months on American oak, then refermented in the bottle.

Une bouteille partage (une chance). Un liquide couleur tang, un filet de mousse. Un nez bois avec des oranges au caramel. Une bouche solide, forte et puissante. Un liquide fruit et sucr avec des relent dalcool. Trop

Rousse fonce. Les odeurs ne sont pas facilement discernables, mais le chne ressort dfinitivement accompagn de malt et de vanille et de sirop drable. En bouche, pleines de saveurs sans tre trop lourde, se prcipite lun a la suite de lautre : noix caramlis, bacon fume au sirop drable, finale feu de camp.

kraddel (6860) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle at Barely Legal Tasting Room . pours dark , unclear amber-red-brown . Unmentionable foam . Smell is sweet , very sweet malts ( think of an Old ale, Barley wine ) Taste is likewise . sweet, but a bit thinner than earlier mentioned styles . Also a decent amount of bitterness included . Very nice ! Carbonation is decent , low as it should be . Very nice beer ! Slightly metallic in the back , and could use more body at this ABV to be world-class , but I definetly dont regret buying this one !

elbernays (1328) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 12, 2014
330ml bottle at home from drinkstore. Pours brown with white head. Looks lovely with nice lacing. This is like a rummy liquor. Big toffee caramel butterscotch, vanilla nose. Smooth creamy toffee, cherry, wood, coffee, lightly smoked flavour. The body is immense and mouthfeel is luxurious. Fantastic.

fiulijn (19824) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver
Cloudy dark ambr color with creamy head. Strong aroma of caramel with interesting notes of wood, vanilla, smoke. Full bodied; strong malt flavor, with accent of dark caramel, nuts, smoke and some vanilla; moderately sweet, correctly bitter, with a light acidity, medium astringency in the final and clear alcohol warmth; there is plenty of resiny hops.
Rich; not as complex as a Baladin X Fum, but powerful, balanced, well brewed.

skortila (5472) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2014
Bottled. Full 33cl sample. The aroma has raisins, figs, caramel, piney hops. Clear, brown coloured beer with not much head. Initially off-white medium. The taste is moderate sweet and moderate bitter. There are molasses, raisins, resin, figs, caramel. Pretty nice. But definately not worth the price. 8 Wired is pretty expensive in Holland.

Bottle. at home. Miedium high creamy and lasting off-white head. Orange brown body with a lot of bubbles. Fruity wineous mildly smoked aroma. Highly carbonated alcohol dominated roasted malt fruity and pretty hoppy flavor with a long bitter finish.
