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!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 650 ml. bottle. The color of the pour is a lovely looking reddish-amber with a long lasting white head. It never really fades. The aroma is barley grain, sweet malts, tobacco, earth, and a fairly low booze profile. The body is full. The taste brings out those same sweet caramel malt and barley grain characters with a moderate dry finish. This one would be just as good a year or two from now.
