look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours out a beauitful peachy gold colour. Has a beautiful cream coloured head which is complex and comprises various small bubbles. Poured straight into the middle and after a couple of minutes there's not much head but what's left remains for the duration.

S: Caramel and fruit. Strikes me as smelling like Bassett's Fruit Allsorts, which is quite unreal.

T: An even mix of strong sweetness and bitterness, woodyness, a touch of liquorishness and a tropical fruit which is either mango or guava. Very balanced, silky smooth.

M: It's hard to describe the carbonation but this is truly the silkiest, smoothest beer I've ever had.

O: An English strong ale which is exceedingly smooth and well balanced.

Grabbed this one at a pub in Paddington. Thin beige cap over a bronze, clear beer. Decent retention with some clinging bubbles. Super fruity aroma, dried fruit like raisins and figs, along with a nearly tropical character and sturdy biscuit malt base. Solid bitterness didn't get in the way of fruity and malty flavors, as well as a bit of alcohol. Nicely balanced between hops, malt and yeast. A bit bready, biscuit, slight caramel, dried fruit. Full bodied with low carbonation, a bit drying, malty texture. I enjoyed this quite a bit. I'd love it if this was easier to get on the other side of the pond.

500 mL bottle poured into a straight sided glass.

Appearance - Deep golden body. Big off white head. Retains forever. Clings inside the glass.

Smell - Sweet smelling. Fruity and malty. Caramel and raisins, but it's a lighter fruitiness than other barleywines.

Taste - Pretty hoppy. Right up front. Sweet pale malts. Grapefruit hops. Fruity, caramelly, and sweet into the finish, which has a hop bite.

Mouthfeel - Sweet and medium heavy. Well carbonated.

Overall - Very flavorful, but pretty sweet.
