COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We first brewed this to commemorate our 10th birthday in Oct’ 07, so, now that we’re 11 and a quarter years old, we’d thought we’d bring it back. The idea was to make a Hightail, but with the volume turned up. A more intense Hightail experience. It’s rich, full and malty. There’s strong but balanced bitterness and it comes in at 6.8% alc/vol.

sneaks2210 (46) - New York, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Pours dark amber with a nice foamy off-white head. The aroma is quite nice with floral hops and dark fruits (raisins & plums) up front, and a sweet maltiness in the background. The sweet malts come through in the taste with a good amount of caramel, brown sugar and molasses. A hop bitterness and a touch of alcohol is present in the finish. Medium bodied with easy drinkability. Nothing spectacular, but very solid.

Darkish brown with minimal head. Nutty, roasted aroma. Pleasant. Highly bitter and oaky - nice.

TheJestersBeer (2431) - SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2012
Bottled. Pours a clear, deep amber, beihe head. The aroma is fairly focused on malt, lots of caramel, fudge, lightly roasted, marzipan, almonds, strawberries (!). Dry, medium body and bitterness. Malty taste, caramel, yeast, hops, marzipan, nuts. Feels like a lighter Barley Wine type of thing. (2012-02-28)

beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Very strong. Barleywine aspects to it. Malt forward with a medium amount of bitterness to it.

3.7
marcus (10668) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle from BevMo, Arden. Pours dark brown with an attractive tan head and a toffee and treacle aroma. There is a hearty treacle flavor with some plum and a hint of chocolate that stays on the palate.

3.2
snuffla (176) - Chch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 14, 2011
Peachy hop notes with a toffee backbone and a little hint of something alcoholic on the nose, maybe a smidge of speyside malt. Biscuit gives way to some big liquorice flavours to taste and some more poached peach to finish. Maybe a little bit thin for the alcohol, but a nice brisk more-ish-ness that keeps you sipping.

3.4
bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with decent cream coloured head. Big sweet malty aromas of caramel and light toffee. Some resiny hops coming through in support. Flavours are overall quite sweet with the hop bitterness only kicking in on the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Slightly out of balance but a nice beer all the same.
