So bad.
Not good as an ipa or barleywine.
I couldn't finish my glass.

One of the newer bottles: no paper wrap, no cork, new label, green 375ml.

Pours a surprisingly dark and almost murky reddish brown. Beige head is huge and sticky. Good retention, decent lace.

Smells of extreme pine sap, resin, pineapple, grapefruit, earthiness, sweet toffee malt.

Taste brings resiny, grapefruit, earthy hops and a little more malt sweetness of the toffee and bready variety. The first few sips come off as astringent but that seems to fix itself with time. A bit of mint there as well.

Mouthfeel is big, almost syrupy, good dose of hop bitterness but also big malt sweetness. Almost comes off as a barleywine in a way. Alcohol heat is minor, but it's a sipper because of its robustness.

Those hoping for a game changing OMG level of hop bitterness will surely be let down, but a decent DIPA-leaning-towards-barleywine.

Drank this very late; expiry date was 22/03/13. (Beer had a cork, and was stored in darkness)

Poured dark and flat with lots of black liquorice and molasses on the nose. Very pungent. No sediment that I could see.

Front: very sweet, fruity (blackberries), and black liquorice.

Mid: a bit flat half-way through.

End: Big finish. Smoky and oaky, leather, caramel, sherry. (no bitterness since I'd aged it for so long)

Comments: the aging process definitely smoothed out the hops + bitterness. Very sweet.
