Draught in a snifter: This one poured a dark, cloudy mahogany color. There was pretty much no head on it at all. The aroma contained malt sweetness, as well a some fruitiness. Maybe a int of an unknown spice. The taste was sweet, but mellowed: not harsh like some Barleywines can be. There was also a hint of oakiness to the taste. Also, a bit of an alcohol taste coming through, but it didn't detract from it one bit. Very good!

Has a dark red/ruby color and a sweet malt smell. Taste was also of sweet malts and finished very smooth with little bitterness. Overall one of the best barley wines I have tried.

Aurelius (4062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2005 Oaky port aroma. Yeasty, mouldering with a light fruitiness. Clear cola brown. Whiffs of licorice. Moderate acidity, alcohol bitterness. Quite subtle and good. Enjoyed on an extremely cold day, DBH trip with Relay.
