From the clear 11.2 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on January 19, 2015.

It is highly attractive to look at with its yellow to light amber pour and big, cream colored head. The head fades with little lacing.

Alas, the clear bottle resulted in skunkiness or me. That overpowers the vague biscuit malt and mild hop characters. Not much in the way of wood or whiskey.

Medium body.

The taste seems to bring out a little more wooden musky cellar characters with those malts but nothing is really in my face. Mild finish. Maybe it is supposed to be mellow. If so, they succeeded. I think I wanted more punch.

Fills the glass with amber color (more orangey undertone) and a small white head with no retention to speak of.
The aroma is combination of malts, some woody and grassy aroma and just a pinch of that whisky aroma (could be just imagining it).
The taste starts nicely with a very moderate bitterness. The body is balanced and finishes with a minimal amount of sweetness (whisky-like).
Very nice, enjoyable and smooth. Could have a couple more.

330 ml bottle into snifter, best before 11/30/2015. Pours slightly hazy pale orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of toast, biscuit, light caramel, oak, whiskey, light vanilla, pear, apple, herbal, and yeast/oak earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and solid complexity of bready malt, yeast ester, earthy hop, and oak notes; with decent strength. Taste of toast, biscuit, light caramel, whiskey, oak, light vanilla, pear, apple, herbal, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light herbal/oak bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, light toffee, whiskey, oak, light vanilla, pear, apple, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness, balance, and solid complexity of bready malt, yeast ester, earthy hop, and oak flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice oak aged English strong ale style. All around good balance, robustness, and solid complexity of bready malt, fruity yeast, earthy hop, and oak flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

nice amber color with a very good aroma, it's smooth with a subtle taste. A beer that you can drink a few of.

A beer that stands out for the first smell and taste. Curious but a type of beer that you offer quality but leave the band.
