3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl. Robe presque rouge sans tête mais avec ce qui m’apparaît être des jambes. Nez très fruité (fruits secs et macérés, figues, oranges confites) rendu doux par de généreuses céréales. Saveurs réconfortantes et franchement liquoreuses. Notes douces et amères. Corps gras sans bulles significatives. Finale modérément chaude avec un goût franc de malts grillés. Intéressant vin d’orge partagé avec rodenbach99.

"seems more in the english style. hops are very subdued...aroma and flavor are toffee, caramel, and some dark fruit. pretty nice sipper. the aroma tended a bit young, but the flavor did not. medium bodied and richly flavored."

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a dark hazed copper with red edges and tan thin head. Nose is fairy sweet with heavy malt component. A hint dusty and a faint green/herbal hop. Taste is strong berry, candied sugar, brown sugar, faint chocolate malt and a touch of toasted nut. Full bodied and solid carbonation, a bit chalky in the finish. Green hops and a light hop bitterness linger through the back end.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Freshcraft. Dark orange/amber appearance with minimal head and light lacing. Aroma and flavor of caramel, fruity esters, earthy hops, toffee and light alcohol. Medium sweetness and light bitterness. One of their better offerings.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle. Not sure where it came from. Dark red brown and mostly clear. A beige layer of foam leaves some lacing. Dark fruit, rich malts, and some spices in the aroma. I read the ABV but don’t taste alcohol. But by the 4th or 5th sip it could be felt. I do taste raisins, very sweet malts, and bright hops. Mid glass the fruit is bigger and some harshness arrives. This is a tasty sipper.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Medium/dark orange in color with a white head, this barleywine has a nice, malty nose and a sour complexity of pit fruits and maybe some bourbon and raisins. It’s neat, complex, and mature. This is why I love barleywines. It’s chewy, malty, and serious. It’s soft and smooth in the mouth, with a nice balance of alcohol and malts with a touch of earthy, resinous hops. I have to say that I’m more impressed by this beer than I thought I would be.

1999 bottle! Holy shit! Sweet aroma. A bit of maple. Smooth with a little oxidation. Held up really well for such an old beer. Nice.

Im not sure what this is supposed to taste like but its not good. Smells and tastes a little like a run of the mill barleywine, just worse. Seriously undrinkable.
