door. Reddish deep amber browny clear. Malty sweetness, deep brown bready, nutty nose. Med bodied, sweetness agsin, smooth clean fermented yeasty fruits. Pretty nice, this year again, showcase of english good yeast and caramel use.
Bottle 18123. Deep rich orange colour topped by a thick white head. The aroma is gorgeous. Rich marmalade and soft sweet malt. There's a faint whiff of floral/herbal character and some subtly spicy hops. Warming and sticky with some light honey and a bit of sweet candied fruit. There's a red fruit/berry back flavour before a soft woody bitterness takes over. A nice warming finish on the back; soft carbonation and a lovely lingering fruitiness. I like the subtlety here. robinvboyer (4787) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2017
Floral, and herbal, light citrus and biscuity malts. Soft grasses, a little boozy, chewy malts, hints if caramel and fruit cake.. Really nice stuff.

Tasting at Erik's; bottle 18795
Hazy bright amber color with fluffy head. Nice aroma, malt, hint of dark fruits, hint of almonds, hint of fudge. Medium body strength, some malt and fudge, vanilla, andied orange, a bit earthy and underhopped in the final, with pleasant alcohol warmth.
Some elegance, but not much depth. Good.
