3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours red, minimal head that dissipates quickly, aroma of caramel, some resinous hops. Full bodied, oily feel, soft carbonation, Taste is more caramel, with some raisins and berries. Good strong bitterness and the required heavy cloying sweetness that comes with a Barley Wine. The reviews so far seem a little harsh, as a 12% US style Barley Wine it ticks a lot of boxes for me. Its not the best Barley wine I’ve ever had, and It may not be the most balanced beer, but it doesn’t need to be! An interesting brew, would recommend to those wanting some kick from their beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep copper colour with thin beige head that quickly disappears. Nose is fruity and toasty. First mouthfeel is huge sweetness and caramel, then toasted malts, dark fruits, spices and fruits aromas. Warm alcohol. Full body, low carbonation. Long alcoholic and sweet finish. Rather good, but not balanced enough : sweetness and alcohol are a bit overwhelming other tastes and aromas.
