3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours reddish brown with very minimal head. Strong spicy aroma and flavour (spicy orange, nutmeg, oak, etc). Not as thick body as I would have expected. Alcohol hidden decently well, but not at all "warming". Would serve well to age for a few more years.

At Swans. Berry and wood aroma.

Bottle from Brewery Creek
Hazy red - dark amber color; small creamy head. Strange aroma, grocery store, cookies, my home made lasagna, light fudge, maple syrup. Sweet caramel and fudge flavor, some maple syrup, nutty, milky; strong body, the bitterness is subdued. I like sweet drinks, so I also like this one, but it wouldn’t be the one that could get me into Barley Wines. Generous mark.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of oranges, wood and sweetness. Clear orangey pour with a thin white head. Flavor of oranges, wood and sweetness. The body is medium with a liquorous texture and moderate carbonation. A bit underwhelming for a barley wine.

Bottled. A red-amber beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma has notes of over ripe fruits, caramel, prunes, and sirup. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of caramel and over ripe fruits, as well as notes of cinnamon, and prunes, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Thanks fiulijn for sharing.
