3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark, slightly murky orange-brown pour. Fruity aroma and flavours. Winey notes, subtle citrus, and some dried fruits. Very thick and full-bodied, although light flavour considering the heavy texture. Very smooth. Tasty and well-balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2014 No head served at cellar temperature. Pungent scent consisting of dried fruit, chocolate, cherries, and malt. Extremely robust flavour. Malt, cream, alcohol, chocolate, and fruit (namely cherry). Strong and heavy with lingering hops and bitterness. A big boy, but certainly a good one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark reddish brown body, large bubbles, not a lot of head or lacing. Sweet malt aroma, corn, vanilla, booze. Taste is strong booze, sweet malts, a touch of bitterness to round it out. A touch on the harsh side, but a rather nice barley wine overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a great thick iced tea color. Aromas are sweet and syrupy. Honey, corn syrup, brown sugar. This is smooth.. Both on the palate and in flavor. No booze detected. Sweet malts with some woodiness for a balancing bitterness. Nice!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a keg. Dark brown and slightly mucky color. Minimal beige head. Beautiful deep aroma, I love it! Good amount of carbonation makes the beer come alive in your mouth. Leaves a light film and goes down easy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with medium retention with minimal lacing. Aroma consists of sweet caramelized malt with grainy cereal notes and some warming alcohol notes. Taste is dominated by sweet caramelized malt with some grainy cereal notes and a quite a bit of residual sugar. Body is quite full with good carbonation with light warming alcohol notes. Quite enjoyable but I could have done without the light grainy cereal notes.
