Deep mahogany pour, fluffy white head that lasts throughout the entirety of the drinking experience. Leaves great lacing. Beautiful looking beer. Aroma is super piney, super astringent, really dank. Slight ETOH burn. Nice. Rich malty sweetness is e foundation, but the dank, bitter hops shine here. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. Really good.

Pours murky dark amber with a small ring of off white head. Big resiny dry hop aroma tos of caramel. The hops are spicy and provide a sharp prickly zing which cuts the immense malt level. Chewy like caramel candy laced with peppery hops.

Bottle @ home, a year old. Pours out an amber colored liquid with a beige head, great retention and nice lacing. Nose is very hoppy with pine apple, mango and, ripe orange and orange zest. Lots of warming caramel, dried fruits, alcohol, toffee, biscuits vanilla and hints of milk chocolate. Full bodied, smooth palate initially, with a drier and bitter taste towards mid-taste. Taste is fruity and hoppy with loads of caramel & toffee that balances. Flavors alos of red apples, apricots, overripe mango, oranges, subtle milk chocolate, vanilla and oak. Aftertaste is bitter with orange zest, grapebruits, bicuits and nuttyness. Long duration.

22 oz bottle at home on 4th July 2016. Really enjoyed this: wife didn’t like her sample, so had to drink the whole bottle myself. Mahogany coloured brew, off-white topping. Hops rule the roost here with an alcohol presence that adds to the flavouring nicely. Semi-sweet tropical fruitiness oozes through the more bitter hops and the malty base creeps into the mouth also. A beer I would gladly have again and again.

This is a beast. A lot of hop and acidic alcohol to start off with. Then the Barley Wine starts to find its familiar place with the caramel, dried fruit and some oak notes. A bit unbalanced but I like it!
