4.65/5  rDev +18%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Released as a "limited edition Millennium ale" it is closely related and based on its older cousin, the "Jubelale" but it taken to new extremes in virtually every directions including bitterness, aroma, maltiness and character. This is a real winner. Although the abv is unlisted on the bottle., I've seen references to 7.0%abv written in places; but for this avid beer fan, its seems to pack a much heartier punch ... Perhaps a little closer to its local competitor Hair Of The Dog and their selection of 10%abv releases.

Pours a deep dark brown with a heavy ruby red accent. Pours with a very small head which quick fades to little more than an extremely small inconsistent collar and no glass lacing.

Aroma is rife with passion and extremely fruity, malty, sour, and hoppy hints with plenty of interesting earthy hints like peat, oak and smoke.

Flavorise,this really packs a punch and is a cornacopia offering of different ingredients for beer. This is intensely fruity (cherry, apricot, plum, and apple), earthy (walnut, peat, and oak), wickedly sweet (toffee, caramel and chocolate) plus a nice round hit of coffee/espresso to help round it all out. Extremely bitter, but it doesn't make your tongue tingle like many barley wines, but its tends to sit better at the back of the throat and slides down with a interesting bitterly sweet malty taste explosion.

Considering everything that is going on in this brew, it’s a real intresting and highly enjoyable brew. Best of all, all the flavors come together in one very well rounded, almost creamy consistency package that delivers a real knockout punch.

A nice brew that should age well, considering the quality of it at this juncture more than 2 years after being brewed. Sadly, I've only come across 3 bottles of this and failed to grab more than the one I'm about to finish off now. Sublime!!

On tap at the Local Taphouse.

Pours a red colour, bit of haze. Head is off-white, webbed lace but sticks to the glass. Looks nice.

Smells like banana esters, with some dry sweet spice, nutmeg and vanilla. Touch of raisin. Could have more richness and more robustness, but decent.

Taste is chocolatey. Dry cocoa with some toffee, sultanas and some dried orange peel. Not much spice; more fruit and lots of chocolate. Not bad.

Full body, nicely textured. Slightly dry on the back.

Nice beer; have had better spiced Winter seasonals though, generally better because of more spice.

Serving type: on-tap
