Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass.

The color is a dark black with a nice foamy brown head and some really nice lacing being left on the glass.

The smell is malty with a slight hint of dark chocolate. A nice roasty character to this beer brings out thoughts of fudge brownies with some nuts.

The taste is again nice roasted malts with some slight coffee flavor and mixed with the dark chocolate flavor. Along with some nutty flavor that is also a little caramel flavor. Great flavor profile for a dark beer.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied. Goes down clean and is pretty easy drinking. A great beer for people into darker beers.

Pored from the 12oz. bottle into a pint glass

The color is a reddish brown with a foamy off-white head and some slight lacing.

The smell is a mix of toffee and some slight butterscotch flavors. There is also a hint of dried fruit flavor.

The taste is caramel and toffee flavored at first with a malty, bready flavor coming in behind it. There is a nice dried fruit flavor with some peach, rasin and slight white grape flavor in the background.

This beer has a pretty big body to it with a smooth, drinkable feel. It is pretty drinkable with a nice English Barelywine feel.

2002 bottle - Color is a hazy orangish rustic brown with a thin dark ivory head that wisks away quickly, absolutely no lacing. Smell is faint of caramel and alcohol, slight pine sap and honey notes. Taste is very mellowing, warm, soothing, malty with a good caramel base, a touch toffee and earthy pined hops and bitterness. Nothing substantially lasting but a has a good lift. Feel is close to full with a nice creamy feel going down and a bit of chewyness. A nice calm and mellowing brew, goes down nicely and with a whole lotta ease. A nice example for the style and would make a for a good intro brew for the style as well.

Who are you calling old? Pours a mostly clear rich amber color with red hues. Decent viscosity. A decent head that quickly hid to the edges but remained through the whole sample. But limited lacing.

The smell is very malty with what I would consider more of an English Barelywine feel. The malt is big with caramel and earthy tones to it (almost Marris Otter-esk). Big pine and grapefruit notes back up the malt (more US-esk).

The taste is sweet and very malty. Again I have to note the English like Barelywine feel. The malt has a caramel flavor that is really sweet In addition there is a heighten alcoholic flavor brings a hot texture to the taste and covers up some of the malt. The taste starts off all malt but finishes all hops. A big bite near the end with a twinge of citrus is followed by a grapefruit and earthy hop finish.

The body is big and carbonation is good. The texture is borderline syrupy for beer but doesn't cross the line. It could be just me but this is more of an English style, while I pefer the Bigfoot as per American style. Both are good.

1JJ code = Brewed on January 10th, 2001.

A - Pours an amber colored body with some small bits of sediment floating around. Full, thick head is tan in color and made up of tight bubbles. Nice sheets of lacing.

S - Big and boozy. Lots of dark fruit present here with plums raisins being the most obvious. Definite smell of whiskey.

T - Booziness is more subdued in the flavor than in the smell, but it is definitely still there. Light whiskey combined with deep caramel malt flavors. Some raisins and maybe dates. Slight bitterness at the finish.

M - Medium bodied with very smooth carbonation.

D - This is good, but I don't know how much improved it is over fresh Foghorn.

faded rather quick and left zero lacing
Again, a different nose. Sweet malts, fruits. Maybe cherries, something really sweet.
Interesting, very little hops up front, or anywhere for that matter. It is sweet, almost too sweet. Fruitiness(furley>) is rampid through this brew. Not sure what age would do to this, but it is different. Nice malty finish, mixed with the sweet caramel but it is almost too sweet. Extremely light hops, and no noticeable alcohol.
