Cloudy brown beer. Crispy palate, a tad dry. Smoky malt is immediately evident, but not overpowering. Smoke is well integrated with the fruit and the malt and this the smoke is balanced nicely. Finishes dry and with more of the same. Very drinkable.

2012-12-07, bottle, 8.5% ABV, 7-5-7-3-14=35
batch 76, bb 01.2016

Hazy dark amber color, with generous compact head. The aroma is mild, a bit smokey, but also earthy; shaking the glass some thing better and deeper comes out. The flavor is malty, the body is medium, not too round and strong; there is a mixed smoke and cabbage note that disturbs (already found it in other similar beers); correct bitterness; the final is rather simple.
Not bad, but confused, and not enough malty to be a Barley Wine as they promise.

2008-05-30, blind tasting at Yespr’s, 8.7% ABV, 6-4-7-3-14=34
Cloudy amber color. Medium smoke aroma. It has a quite round body and a nice malty sweetness, a touch of apples and good smokey touch. Good.
