2008 vintage.

Notes of metal and tar are unexpected in aroma. There's an estery profile of banana, clove, pear skin, and apple accompanying a fairly sweet dark fruit and caramel malt backbone. Notes of figs and dates become more pronounced as it warms. Flavor is exceedingly sweet initially, with caramel malt and treacle dominance. Luckily, esters of tart green apple and pear, along with sherry oxidation, counter and add complexity. Still fairly hot, with alcohol warmth lingering in the finish.figs and dates add depth as it warms. Fairly complex beer, which will probably continue to age well.

2011 bottle
Golden haze color. Very sweet grain smell, but also a lot of spices as well. Cloves and peppery smell.

Flavor is very nice. Very sweet up front. Pepper comes through as well as the cloves and some cinnamon. The alcohol content is noticeable, but not overpowering at all. Spicy, dry finish. Excellent mouthfeel. Overall a very good beer.

2013 corked and caged 750ml bottle.

A good pop when I pulled the cork out. Despite a careful pour, I still get a 3 finger head of billowy foam. The colour is orange yellow and cloudy.

It smells spicy and fruity and yeasty. Coriander, very light clove, apple and probably peach.

The taste has the spice with the clove being more aggressive, coriander, and the fruit I mentioned in the smell. Some sweet flavour but also a mild hop bitterness in there as well. It finishes very dry. Alcohol is not intrusive.

Medium bodied and not too shabby a drinker, this is nice.
