Bottled. An amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel and fruit. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of both fresh and over ripe fruits. The sweetness makes it a bit cloying. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Draught at Rose and Raindrop, Portland. Clear nut brown. Grassy lemon juice aroma. Somewhat syrupy and vinous with thick mouthfeel. Creates a sweet/sour sensation that I’m not terribly sure I like.

Bright copper colour. Rich nose - caramel, earthy hints and chocolate. Fairly thin, which doesn’t allow for a true BW impact. Both malt and hop are really standard for the style - anyone familiar with this style at all will be like "yup, that’s a barley wine" and then move on.

(Bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a small beige head. Aroma of fruit bread, caramel, hazelnut, and vanilla. Flavor of nut bread, fruit, maple syrup, and alcohol. Bit thin; not malty enough for a barleywine.
