3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a great year round barley wine. Smells of some seriously sweet malts and I love it. Taste is smooth with a little bitterness. Really good beer but I would deduct major points for Anchor’s ridiculous bottling code if I could.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from the 6-pack, look is reddish orange nice 2-3 finger collar. The first beer and a half are forced sippers, meaning it is almost impossible to gulp, but after that all bets are off. I got all kinds of different flavors in every drink: fresh fruit, dried fruit, sugar, booze, malt and some hops. I also get why the commercial description suggests to sip after dinner, because it’s strong! I wouldn’t suggest trying to drink all 6 if you have anything to do the next day, especially early in the morning.

Bottle. Pours Reddish Amber with a very small, beige head. Aroma of malt soup. Notes of stone fruit and booze. Lots going on in the taste. Plummy fruit, liquor and a bit of doughy cake flavour. Gets you pished n’aw. Tidy.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
A really beautiful reddish brown ale with light foam. Even when the bottle is opened spreads a lovely winey aroma. There is much fruit in the aroma and slightly malt. The palate is marked by hard roasted malt and lots of fruit. The alcohol has a nice warming effect and edge makes a good vinous fullness. The finish is long and the hops gives it a subtle bitter touch which is in a very good balance with the malty and fruity taste.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Grumligt orange/mörkbrun med kvarhållande beigt skum. Doftar sött, lite kanel och kryddor. Smaken omedelbart sötsyrlig, maltig med lite beska i botten. Eftersmaken ganska lång: lite sötsliskig, mycket tung maltsmak. Klart bästa Barley wine jag druckit.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- In my opinion it has a very alcoholic smell to it. I can smell a little bit of the dark fruit but mostly alcohol. A- Nice ruby color with an off white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. T- I do not taste the the alcohol that I found in the smell. It has a nice sweet dark fruit. M- Light carbonation that coats the mouth nicely. O- A very tasty beer from a historic brewery. I have not had many barleywines but I’m beginning to love them more and more.
