3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (10,1%). Dark golden, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty - lightly grainy and sugary sweetish aroma, some caramel and dark fruits, light herbal hoppyness and alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light dark fruits, light - some herbal hoppyness, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and sweetish, light caramel and light dark fruits, light - some herbal hoppyness, light - some alcohol. BW with caramel and decent bitterness. Not big fan of the style, but this one is not overly too sweet (with help from 10,1% and bitterness).

355cc bottle poured into glass. Hazy dark amber color, with small off white light brown head that doesn’t stay for long. Full body, medium-high carbonation. Sweet malty taste. Medium bitterness. High ABV is very obvious. Overall quite nice, but not amazing.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber clear-ish. Earthy cedary, sweet dark malty (raisins) nose, some greenery too. Full medium body. Sweet malty, but not too much, smooth dark bread, or cake actually, molasses. Flavourful, nice. As a barley wine a bit dull though. Or could be more intensive. Isn’t cloying or that hard to drink though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange brown hazy pour with thin tan head. Aroma is sweet raisin and caramel. Taste is overly sweet raisin. Burnt raisin if that is even a thing. Very good, just a bit too sweet for me.
