Light amber with off white head - Sweet, spicy wood aroma - Malt body with wood and spicyness from yeast with some alcohol heat - The spicy and woody flavours goes into the finihs with alcohol heat - This was good Pdubyah (736) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 12, 2014
This is unbalanced and not really at all in tune with itself. Too much chewing gum, a really loud alcohol astringent and not quite enough sweetness. It should have been a contender..... but it ends up on the ropes. I wanted to enjoy it more. dnstone (3418) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Aroma reminds me of a barleywine with a sour edge. Golden-orange in color with a slight haze. Medium bodied, strongly malty with the tart edge and woody/vanilla finish.
Notes: GABF ’09 drjay44 (3713) - Salida, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Pitcher pour at 2009 GABF. Pours a thin white head, over a pale yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose has mild allspice, coriander.....taste initially is sweet malts, sugars, finishes slightly drier, but still sweet, there are mild to moderate spice tones throughout...mouth feel light carbonation low. Although still sweet, and therefore unbalanced, this is an improvement over the regular Asylum. Tasting on 9/26/09 bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2009
(Draught, side by side with the regular version) Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of orange peel, oak, and yeast. Flavor of orange pulp, Belgian yeast, candi sugar, light citrus, and alcohol with a dry finish.
