3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Henrik. This is a blurry reddish copper colored one with a nice really creamy - almost nitro creamy off-white top. Smells really sweet, malty and nice. Light nutty also with dark candied sugar, wood syrup and some red berries. I like this aroma. It’s quite nutty in the flavor. No, make that really nutty. Almost a bit like Nutella. Soft really creamy smooth mouthfeel with a soft prickling carbonation level. A bit sweet at first, almost soapy, fruity with red ripe berries. Some nice gentle traces of alcohol in the finish and aftertaste. 05.07.2013

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (500 ml). 1+ year old. Hazy amber with a small off-white head and little lacing. Aroma is of malt, caramel, spices, boozy notes, light fruity notes... there’s also a lot of resinous hops, they are fainted but still there. Taste is moderately sweet with caramel, malt, alcohol, fruits, wood, spices, resinous notes and light bitterness. Warming alcohol and spices. Medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. Good Barley Wine. Not extremely complex and a bit hot, but well balanced. Malty, but not overly sweet. Drinkable for the style.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy amber-brown with a thick off white head. This one is definitly English style with a heavy malt aroma, a little age, & some savory spice components. Maybe a little yeast, too. Taste is milk chocolate malts that really come out in the mid palate. There’s a peppery bite throughout and a bitter finish. This one is very comfortable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
550 ml bottle purchased @ Julio’s Liquors back in December 2012. Dark muddy red/ brown color. Aroma is sweet and very malty with noticeable Simcoe pine. Taste was actually much like the nose, tons of caramel malt and a sharp hop edge created from the Simcoe. Strong notes of pine with a resinous kick of bitterness. Taste is medium to full bodied, balanced carbonation. I feel the hops really dominated the malt and the resin is a bit harsh. Had I let it get more age, perhaps the hops to malt ratio would balance better. Right now a bit harsh.
