Bought fresh from the brewery shop in Tadcaster and drunk from a Samuel Smith's snifter.

A: Beautiful darkish amber. Clear. Off-white foamy head.

S: Bready and fruity. Fudge.

T: Bread pudding fruitiness, vanilla, fudge, liquorice and nail varnish combined with the hoppy bitterness and that gingery prickliness you get from English ale. It has sweetness but it's balanced beautifully with everything else. Strawberries appear further down the bottle.

M: A very elegant effervescence.

O: Close to perfection.

First off, it's got a great dark copper color with a slight haze and a yellowish-tan head that dissipates fairly quick. Nose is sweet with pronounced hop and fruit characters and a background of leather. Starts off with an oaken malty spiciness that progresses to some nice flavoring hops, then some slightly roasted and nutty characters before finishing with an alcoholic warmth and lingering floral bitterness reminiscent of a lambic. Mouthfeel is smooth and slightly effervescent, almost like a bubbly cognac. This beer is extremely drinkable and balanced. It's a great example of what an old ale can strive to be; there's a fine balance between an old ale, english barleywine, and flander's ale. If you have a chance to purchase a bottle, get two!

I've been saving this one for a special occasion, and tonight was the night. I had high expectations, and it exceeded them.

Fairly dark, looks similar to a brown ale.

Smells fruity, a bit like raisins.

Flavors of caramel, plum, and oak. The oak is *very* strong in this one.

Mouthfeel is rather light for this size of beer, and drinkability is OUTSTANDING. I'd never guess it was 8% ABV.

All in all, I really wish I had more than one bottle of the stuff. I'll definitely be keeping my eyes out for it in the future.
