3.63/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Emptied can into a pint glass. 10/26/11 canning date.
Clear, deep reddish body. Two fingers of sticky topping. Excellent lacing. Looks creamy and frothy and delicious.
Bitter dank hops on the nose. Sweet, bready malt. Bit of glazed fruit, maybe strawberry, faint maple syrup. Subtle, but nice.
Floral hops, perfumy and oily; a little gingery in spice, having some difficulty picking up the dates. Nice English hop/malt balance. Exemplary of style with an American hop amplification. I taste bread crusts, a little garlic bite, bitter finish. Not to omit, sweet upfront, probably the booze. Little citric or pine character in these hops. These hops have been around the block a bit.
Mouth-coating creaminess. Milky. Carbonation is higher on the charts--helps to mask the ABV. Pretty drinkable. Pretty drinkable, indeed.
English Strong Ale in a can. Done well enough. I enjoy it. Not phenomenal, but a winner.

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.
