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

I'm not really going to go into what I got on flavor or aroma, but if you dig trying to figure out what your tasting, this is THE BEER to experience that with. The taste is complex more so than my girlfriend and I (who I do all of my tastings with) have ever experienced. Just as a teaser: tangerine, lemon/lime, white raisin, white/green grape, cranberry/prune, white bread. It's fun as hell just to try and figure out what you're tasting. Highly recommended. I would unquestionably buy this again. Two fans, through and through, were made tonight. Can't wait to try their entire line-up (especially the stouts!).
