Rousse foncée. Les odeurs ne sont pas facilement discernables, mais le chêne ressort définitivement accompagné de malt et de vanille et de sirop d’érable. En bouche, pleines de saveurs sans être trop lourde, se précipite l’un a la suite de l’autre : noix caramélisé, bacon fumée au sirop d’érable, finale feu de camp. davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 19, 2013

330ml Bottle. Pours a dark brown similar to ginger beer. Huge aroma of caramel, toffee, and sugar. Medium body with a full rich flavour palate. Only a slight hint of alcohol hidden away. Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 1, 2013
Tasted alongside my learned friend Cantabrian. There is a gorgeous roseat ruby colour and a white head that gains a thoroughly unusual full set of appearance marks from me. The aroma is almost medicinal with stewed rhubarb, cherryvite, red licorice, mahogany and rosewood. The aroma is complex, intriguing and inviting. Its body is thick and oily with sweetness and astringent bitternesss that adds to the growing sense of well-being and satisfaction. The finish is lengthy with berry loveliness.
Just wow. A beautiful beer and one to add to the long list of 8 Wired beers to cellar. inceptioj (54) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 23, 2013
I’ve been having so many good beers recently, can hardly remember the last time I was disappointed. I feel kinda guilty somehow. This is another exceptional offering from my long time favorite 8 Wired. Pours a beautiful deep reddish amber. My nose is a tad stuffy and the glassware isn’t quite right so having a bit of difficulty picking up subtleties in the aroma. Stone fruit and smoke is all I’m getting. The taste is obviously incredibly complex with a punch of smoke up front, molasses, some marmite, and a beautiful fruity finish. It’s a nice marrying of flavors and the silky buttery palate makes everything even more delicious.
