4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from CBB. Very dark reddish brown, small tan head that quickly disappears. Very malty sweet aroma but with a nice hoppy side to it, a nice twist for a barley wine. Flavour is very smooth, caramel and dark fruits. Strong kick of alcohol.

32 oz growler from State Line. Burgundy brown with tan froth. Nose is currants, honey, wood and orange liqueur. Medium body with soft carb. Taste is butterscotch, kelp, juniper, blackberry and grass. An odd fruity, hoppy barleywine with a nod to gin.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2015 Great aroma. Chocolate notes... hops, maybe some citrus as well. Appearance is dark murky brown with a small tan head. Some carbonation... quite smooth. Taste of dark chocolate, malt,... Very balanced. A slight "off" aftertaste, but overall very good.

Draft. This is by far the most interesting looking beer I have seen. It looks like chocolate milk. It is murky as fuck. I donít know if to take points away for the appearance or give them... Chudwick says it looks like a latte. WTF? I am leaving the rating at that, decipher from the numbers.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at Brewdog Shepherds Bush, opaque dark brown with a coffee crema, strong barrely coffee and gravy nose. Rich and boozy, with a thick texture. Flavours of wet wood, soy and dry dry cocoa. Off-putting yet very moreish. Weird stuff!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at BrewDog Shepherdís Bush - London. Pours clear, bright ruby with a creamy mellow beige head. The nose holds a good dose of caramel, oily pine, berries and ripe citrus. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with some striking alcohol, toasted grains, aged toffee, gooey pine, orange, caramel, bread. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation; chewy. Warming and sticky on the finish, with more ripe and gooey citrus, berries, caramel, faint butterscotch and bread. Very tasty overall.
