look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bottled Nov 2013, I have cellared this for a year in an average 10 degrees C. Xmas eve 2014 - time to enjoy! There is a BB date of May 2015 on the bottle.

750bottle poured into a sherry glass.

L - burnt orange, clear, pours a 1cm thick creamy slightly lumpy head. Moderate head retention

S - bread malts and orange, all wrapped up in husky, earthy yeast odour, and spicy esters

T -- toffee malt tastes upfront, medium sweetness for style with some pepper and vanilla notes half way through. The end tapers off with increased acidity and sweetness wrapped up in apple and butterscotch.

F - feels a lot more watery than I expected, with a light body for style. Alcohol is more than the 7% suggests (maybe due to the cellaring).

O -Nice beer would a try - interesting flavours. But the watery texture is not well received.
