3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Hazy, light amber coloured, big, table and lacy off-white head; dried fruits - mainly raisins - and caramel and nuts in the nose, "woody" hops in the background; medium to full bodied, moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, a bit sticky, but soft; lingering sweet-fruity finish, caramel and molasses included; gets drier in the bitter-sweet aftertaste. Very nice drop...

Honestly said I expected way more. Way more fruits, way more deepness, way more grapes, way more deepness. This one is drinkable, it is quaffy, but it lacks some aromas I expected. Yet, it has its berries and alcohol, some raisins and nuts. But not enough of them. Or maybe not enough to make that one more enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours out of the bottle in a hazy brown colour with low airy head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of raisins and barley. Taste of raisins, rum, plums, barley, hops, straw and dark berries. Light sour but also little bit thin and watery finish with lots of dried fruits in the end. Nice one but no excellent one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small bottle. Terrible label. Nose is metal, caramel, citrus. Flavour is metal and toffee, bitterness is well balanced but pretty metallic tbh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 18/04/14. Pours a rich and dark amber with a good-sized, off-white head. Aroma is somewhat vinous, loads of caramel, a bit sherry-like. Taste is a lot of caramel, stinginess, some pine, some dark fruitiness, fairly sweet, light salty liquorice. Full with medium carbonation. An alright barley wine, but nothing that really sets it apart.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 2012 bottle. Dark, hazy orange. Thin head. Large, boozy nose of butterscotch candy, dried orange peel and mild smoke. Wet, yet viscous mouthfeel. Loads of malts, unflavored kvass, cheery liquor, and vanilla syrup. Everything is dessert wine sweet. A real sipper. Full bodied. Overall, more complex than it is good, but still enjoyable. An enjoyable end to an evening.
