Been wanting to try this, and finally got the opportunity.

A - Complex aroma of bread crust, toast, toffee. Low earthy, spicy hops come through at the end. Moderate prune esters add to the complexity.

A - Dark copper color, somewhat hazy. Beige head with tight bubbles stays well.

F - Lots of complex malt: toasty, toffee, molasses, hints of roast. Hops peek through to balance nicely and help dry the finish. Hints of oxidation, but in a good way.

M - Rich and full. Low, pleasant alcohol warmth. Moderate carbonation. Alcohol dries the finish.

O - Well-balanced and complex. Will get this again when colder weather sets in.

Slightly tart dry with an almost sweet aftertaste. Enjoyable and savory. Clear dark amber with big head. Been wanting to try this for long time but didn't want to pay the price. Glad I did.

Purchased at Trio in Nags Head, NC. $13.99 for 18.7oz/500ml. Brewed in 2011. Bottle code SD14L1 on neck. Poured into a stemmed tulip. My 1000th beer.

Too much oak for me and a bit solventy. An English Strong Ale that tastes like an Old Ale to me. An Old Ale start with an ESB finish. This beer will not be at the top of my list. 3.75

A – Pours a murky muddy dark amber with a one-finger beige rocky head which dissipates quickly. 4

S – Vinous, some port-like qualities, oaky, a tinch of alcohol. 4.5

T – Old ale qualities, oak, fruitiness with a bitterness in the finish. 3.75

MF – Medium-heavy body with a semi-body finish, creamy, some lasting bitterness on the palate. 4
