[750ml bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk][2011 vintage] Amber pour, very flat. Sweet toffee nose. Sugar cane. Thick sweet sugary sherry on the flavour. Decent body, despite the flatness. Sugared toffee apple – quite musty – but decent  Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - JUL 6, 2012

In bottle. Pours a dark golden amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of treacle, candy sugar, caramel, musty yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lingering candy sugar and alcohol. Mildly bitter. Not bad. anders37 (26878) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2012

750ml bottle at EBBC, dark amber with off-white head, plum & Seville marmalade nose with plenty of alcohol. Dry on the tongue, then filling out with malt & honey, but still dry with alcohol, bitterness coming through in the finish. Like a warming cross between a tripel & a winter ale.
