2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Wow. This is really sweet. Aroma is mango / fresh figs. No hop aroma
Flavor is sweet malty. Figgy mango pear. Sweet finish.
Did they forget to add the hops? Tastes like it.
Very disappointing. It’s been awhile since I’ve had this but there is no way my previous ones were this bad.
Now I’ll have to get an insulin shot

355ml at the Head of Steam, Durham. Dark amber with virtually no head. Sharp aroma, almost vinegar-like, with a curious hint of tequila. Faint herbal flavour, with tannic and decayed floral notes; somewhat cloying.

Some fruits like dried apricot and plums. Taste is just a bitter-sweet mess! Second swing and a miss from Anchor for me.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Bottle. Almost no head but very strong carbonation, dark amber. Big malty, fruity, caramel and toast flavor, a bit alcoholic. Sweet and medium bitter. Maybe a bit too much bitter for me in that type (barleywine), but I think it?s classical for American Barleywine. But when it?s malty, I prefer it not too bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark ruby color cleer beer, low tanned head.
Very sweet, caramely aroma. Caramel, hint of red wine, toffe, molasses
Taste: high sweet, light bitter. Caramel, hint of toffe, hint of wine, hint of something like iron? (again).
Palate: medium body as for barley wine. Low carbonated. Not as sticky as I’m used to with barley wines. Well hidden alcohol.
Overall: pretty classic barley wine. Good, but expected more.
