look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pleasant and strong, though not excessively memorable.

Pours deep coppery brown with a small, short-lived head. The aroma is malty and toffee-like, though there is an assertive hoppiness on top of it, giving it an unexpected character for a beer of this color. The flavor has toffee, dark toast, and coffee, with a cinnamon burn at the end, but that same hoppiness comes through on the finish, adding bitterness to the burn. The mouthfeel is fairly smooth.

A: Pours a deep ruby red with a light mocha head.

S: Dark fruits and light, but not citric fruits in the nose.

T: Lemon, some resiny pine, dark fruits to start followed by bready malt in the finish. Interesting. Definitely different from English or American barleywines.

M: Full bodied and smooth.

O: Worth a try. It's a good beer, and if nothing else, it's interesting. I've tasted few beers that taste quite like this.

A perfectly suitable ESB, if on the hoppier side and perhaps just a tad thin in the mouth. You do get the classic biscuity notes, and maybe not so much of the copper tinge you'll often find in the English ones. A bit sharper in the hops department, but not overly so. The only real problem here is the strength- it doesn't really add anything to the experience here but some alcohol- both in flavor and in strength. Really, why bother?

Canned 10/26/2011

Grabbed a single for a very reasonable price. Ran upstairs with the can in my coat pocket. It exploded when I opened it.

Pours foggy brown with some orange. Minimal head and lacing.

Nose is a big sweet malt bomb. Loads of caramel, candied fruit, heavy syrup, stone fruits, a bit of piney hops.

Lots of sweetness in taste. Dark fruits (dates), some woody character, alcohol, floral hoppy notes, mild bitterness.

Big body, nearly syrupy with the sweetness. Low carbonation.

A tasty brew overall. Plenty of strength and sweetness with a full body to stand on.
