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

12oz bottle received in trade with leafsj - thanks! "2011 Vintage" is printed on the label

Appearance - Hazy copper colour with an above average size fizzy beige coloured head. It's hard to make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes.

Smell - Malts, caramel, hops

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel and malts mixed with hops. There is also some grapefruit/oranges mixed with some pineapple. It ends with a malty slightly bitter aftertaste.

Overall – I guess I have to get my hands on a 2012 bottle to do a proper review. This one is basically a barleywine. Still not a bad beer even with a few years on it. I'd like to try more from this brewer.
