3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Draught Good yellow-beige head, very fine & dense; clear amber-red beer. Acidic-vinous for a Barley Wine, sound hops, chocolate aromas. Dry to a certain acidity, CO² enhanced, more (milk)chocolate, very vinous again, tannins, even. Well-bodied, but not really full-bodied. Nice, but I prefer the Heritage. All the same, thumbs up , Jacob.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
EBF2008. It’s a beautiful, red bronze color and the aroma has notes of grapes. Wood and cumquat. The flavour has notes of wood, grapes, cumquat, lime and a hint of dry tannic acid. I would like a bit more malt, but it’s refreshing and different.
