COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dangerously drinkable garnet beauty is a hop lover’s delight. The intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content are perfectly balanced for a caramel candy-like malt finish. This is a serious beer for serious beer afficionados and it only gets better with age. Cellarable for 3 years.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass to drink. The beer had a mostly clear dark amber color with a large bubbly and foamy off white head with above-average retention, and pretty good cling and lacing. The aroma had an interesting blend of grainy, earthy, and floral hops along with a mix of some caramel and fruity malt. The taste was modestly bitter with grainy, citrus, and floral flavors, along with an undertone of lightly sweet and somewhat sour caramel malt. It had strong carbonation and a very dry and thinner body that nevertheless had a large, alcoholic mouth presence and aftertaste.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Poured dark orange and Amber with light tan head, big head for a high and beer. Continued carbonation to the end. Earth hop aroma not to overpowering so you could smell the comple mild to rich malts. Very big mouthfeel and some alcohol heat. Finished with a Carmel sweetness but not too thick or cloying.

TychoJames (941) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2015
Flaska 65 cl systembolaget. Mörkorange vätska med gulbrunt skum. Rejäl och kraftfull smak av oljig humle med mycket barr och tropiska frukt. Söt med viss knäckighet. Tjock och fyllig smak med klibbig humlekänsla. Maltig och fin botten med hög efterbeska. Känns som en kraftig dubbel-IPA. Framförallt i doften

craftbeersweden (544) - SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2015 ABV 9.2% - Released in Sweden 2015-09-18 in a 650 ml (22 fl oz) bottle.

Pours clear, copper with a two finger high, creamy head.

Nose: Pine, resin, orange marmelade, fruity (A LOT of hops!) and caramel malt.
Taste: Orange, sweet malt, marmelade, dark fruit, herbs, grapefruit, grass and earthy notes.
Body: Full body, oily and chewy. Medium carbonated. A pretty high bitterness at the end. Of course some alcohole warmth.

A great Barley Wine from Avery. Not that suprising and owerwhelming as I thought though. It’s a stable barley wine but I’ve come to expect a LOT from Avery...

Maybe I’m not fair. It’s just that they make so great beers that my expectations are to high...

From a bomber. Pours almost clear copper with a fizzy bubbly beige head. Tastes like dried dark fruits, grapefruit hops, some toasted caramel, booze, and earth. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like grapefruit hops, grassy, earthy, sweet caramel, and dried dark fruits. Very good.

Bottle. Pours clear reddish amber. Aroma is bready malts, floral and grassy hops, caramel, and soft berry notes. Flavor is rich and malty with some caramel sweetness nicely balanced with heavy floral and grassy hop bitterness; very drinkable with a dry, grapefruit finish. Full body.
