3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy copper amber, with a huge off-white head, which lasts very well and leaves good lacing. Pine and fruity hops notes and fig sit against a backdrop of toffee malt to create the aroma. Quite strong fruity hops up front mix with a little pine, before giving way to rich toffee malt and candied fruit in the mid-palate. Pine hops and a touch of citrus come through in the finish. This is a nice hoppy red ale, with a good balance between hops and malt flavours.
Thank you! 330 ml. bottle -> tasting glass. Nose date but probably 3 years old. Dark red amber, little tanned head. Nose has some oxidation with cough syrup, herbal, leaves. Taste luckily has no oxidation, herbal cough syrup, thick dark bread pleasant, low iron, metallic, herbal syrup finish,... Soft carbonation, herbal malty syrup. Has held up schokingly well, quite nice actually despite expectations. jamaty (2255) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Ambar oscura y rojiza de abundante espuma manchada y muy muy duradera. Aroma Acaramelado un pelin lacteo y bastante de licor. En boca defrauda. Tono de licor, mezcla de sabores, mal equilibrados. Parte de frutas del bosque, lleva arándanos. Parte de Malta. Amargor potente. Muy seca. Y un punto lacteo que estropea el conjunto. No está entre las buenas de la casa.

My bottle is a little bit old - another clearance shelf special. Huge dark beige head. Taste is roasted, sweet malt, citrus rind hops some dark dried fruit and some sweetness. Decent stuff, but not spectacular. Aggiebob (1296) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 21, 2015
Bottle that poured a cloudy red amber with a tall frothy tan head that had lace clinging to the glass. A spicy malt aroma with a sweet flavor of fruit, toffee, caramel and molasses.

Bottle at James’ house for the End of History tasting. Pours a clear browned amber with a thin white head. Spicy malt, plum and raisin. Medium bodied, big carbonation, spicy malt, warming alcohol. Hints of chocolate, cocoa, warm malt and alcohol. Not that tasty. Jesterdeal (1986) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle shared at the End of History tasting. Aroma is dinner rolls and red apple stem. Pours amber/red with an uneven filmy head. Taste is stale bread, red apple peel, and bitter grass. Slightly oily mouthfeel with a lingering bitterness. Overall, pretty underwhelming. Jow (4084) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2014
