Pours a hazy medium reddish brown. Aromas of light fruit, hops, caramel malts, kind of medicinal. Flavor is to strong for me, big alcohol taste, malty with a spicy taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Caps & Taps, London - UK. Color: hazy orange amber beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: caramel and caramel malt domination. Really sweet malt domination and alcohol. Toffee notes. Well balanced with grassy and hoppy nose. Very intensive. Taste: full body with sweet oily malt sensation. Caramel and toffee domination. Really sweet beer. Good attenuation with a high resin and hoppy blast. Very intensive. This beer is a cross over between Barley Wine and then an Imperial IPA. Very impressive and high pine and resin finish. Aftertaste: sweet toffee caramel with alcohol finish. Resin and pine finish. Dry bitterness and astringent alcohol.

I really donít know how to describe this but I do get a lot of bready and nutty elemtns. A little oxidised. What style is this? Iím super confused. Nice bitterness. Well hopped. Iím confused. Nice art though! I did enjoy it but was perplexed.

Quite sweet and malty but then piney, grapefruity in a lingering bitterness. More barley wine to me but thatís besides the point anyway. Pretty strong and sweet. Tough to get down if Iím honest

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2016 Bottle from Wholefoods, Kensington, London. A hazy orange/amber coloured pour with a thin white head on top. Sweet, malty, caramel aroma. Tastes incredibly sweet, almost syrup like, malty, caramel, honey, orange, slight bitterness. This could only be an American beer, really complex, I rather like it. Dial down the sweetness and it would be even better. An interesting barley wine nevertheless.

Pours a one finger cream head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Hazy orange/amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Grapefruit nose and flavor is grapefruit, sour finish more like an IPA than a barleywine. Expensive at $13.99 for a 750ml blue bottle at Bertís Better Beers Hooksett, NH.
