3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the brewery, winter 2012/2013, 9.6% ABV
Dark amber color, hazy, with medium sized head, short lived. Malt aroma, caramel, mild; some paint thinner; more was expected. Full bodied, with round mouthfeel; nice malt flavor, sweet, but not heavy as other Barley Wines; correct bitterness level, less than other American Barley Wines; the hop provides a light fruity touch too; warming alcohol feeling in the end.
Good balance; sweet and fruity Barley Wine, lean feeling.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught, at the brewery
Even at a year old, this is still too young. Amber-brown colour. Toffeeish, brown sugary aroma with hints of pine and peach. Very sweet palate. Lots of brown sugar taste, with hints of vanilla, toffee, and pine. It’s got to be around 80 IBUs - you can tell there’s quality cohumulone there but this beer is soooo sweet despite it. A little bit of alcohol gets into the finish. Give it a couple of years.

Bottled 650ml (PBF, alc. 9.6%)
Nut brown color, small off-white head. Ryeish, caramelly, malty aroma. Full-bodied. Caramel, rye, sherry, some tickling alcohol. Liquerish palate. Probably few years old bottle. Quite nice, a bit Bigfoot-like big American barley wine.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thisted tasting. Courtesy of After4eveer, thanks Tom. It is beautiful, dark red copper and the head is creamy. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel and raisin. The flavour has sweetness, notes of dark fruits, alcohol, malt, caramel, raisin and citrus. It is nice – but not as complex as a lot of other US BW’s.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2003 version, on tap at the brewery. Slightly cloudy dark brown beer with low to no head. Hugely malty aroma, biscuit, cookie, caramel. Seems like there is a vanilla oakiness as well. Flavour is incredibly sweet, white grapes, caramel, and biscuity malts. There is some hoppy flavours here, but the bitterness is completely overwhelmed by the massive malts up front. There is some alcoholic flavour in this as well. This beer could use a few more years of aging before becoming something really special. I like it, but it’s just too thick at this point.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a transparent bright copper with a spotty, thin off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramely malt has a touch of light fruity esters. Body has some drier alcoholic notes and semi-sweet caramel maltiness toward a warming finish. Needs more sweet malty balance to hide the alcohol better.
