3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Barley Wine? Smaker ikke som Barley Wine. Ihvertfall ikke de jeg har smakt før. Bortimot svart farge med lys beige skum.Aroma av sjokolade, karamellmalt og søte tørkede frukter. Noe oljete i munnfølelse. smaker søtlig, alkohol med innslag av krydder. Litt kaffepreg i avslutningen.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malty yet prototypical English appeal, certainly not too sweet. I enjoy the spicy hops and different fermentation aromas than most beers. Enough sweetness, tasty stuff. Enjoyable beer at modest abv for the style (nowadays). (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tan fun head. Dark brown beer (okay though, it’s mahogany!!). Maffy bottle label. Earthy dusty malty aroma. Tastes dark malts, coffee liquorice notes and some chocolate, some leafy hops. Normal body. Dark malty caramelly finish with roasted touch. Clean. Nice, and feels lighter than the abv.
