look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
12oz can (canned 10/26/11) poured into a Brooklyn snifter.
A - Pours a crystal clear ruby/mahogany textured brown body. A thin cap of off-white foam sits briefly and fades to a thin collar.
S - Citrusy and piney hops up front, a bit of herbal and cool smells - almost wintergreen'y. Toasted malts, a bit of roast and some earthy/dirtlike aromas.
T - Some roasted malts at the base...firmly topped by citrusy hops that add grapefruit especially. Some dry, biscuity malt and some mild metallic and caramelly sweet flavors to round things out.
M - Medium bodied, but a bit towards the lighter side. Medium level carbonation that is prickly and tingly on the tongue. A touch of the herbal coolness here too that was initially detected in the aroma. Despite being 8.5%...alcohol is pretty indetectable.
O - Nice beer. A bit out there to think of this as an English Strong Ale though. American (and particularly west coast) flavors abound here. Hops and malts. Quite enjoyable nonetheless.

3.71/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Canned in 2011.
Pours a slightly hazy medium brown with copper highlights and a large, frothy khaki head that slowly dissipates, leaving sticky lacing.
Aroma is laden with dates, figs, prunes, and toffee. Smells very rich.
Flavor reveals green apple, dates, and raisins underlying a lightly toasted, bready caramel malt backbone. Hints of sherry indicate that oxidation may have set in.
Body is a touch full, with fairly low carbonation and moderate alcohol warmth.
The malt backbone is a little lacking for the style, but ester notes are fairly complex. Probably won't age nicely much longer. Metallic notes surface as it warms.

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.
