4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Citrusy aroma with some caramel in the background. Caramel is dominating the flavour with some american hops in the background. The finish is balanced between the bitternress and the sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. 11.0%. Best before 20.07.18. Pours a deep, dark amber/brown, with a light tan head. Great lacing. Sweetish dark fruit aroma; raisins, plums. Malt in the background. Flavour is sweet with dark fruit; plums, and a spicy hint; somewhat cardamom-y, without actually being cardamom. Alcohol overtone. Finish is fruity bordering grainy, slightly tart and with a mild alcohol burn. Soft palate. Overall okay, but feels a bit unbalanced, also cloying in the long run. 24.10.16.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from SB.
Slight muddy dark mahogany/redish brown with a medium dirt white/yellowed head.
Aroma is spun sugar, figs, grapefruit and toffee.
Taste is caramel and grapefruit with fudge and alcohol.
Big body with soft carbonation and oily texture.
American indeed, but not the onslaught of hops as it usually is. But the malts are not giving that much complexity to weihg up.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Rich caramel, a bit dark and thick, thin to moderate tannish head, so-so lacing.   Big caramel and toffee aroma, sweet breadiness.   American Barley wine... really?   A bit of dark pitted fruit in this one too.   Mild hop bitterness.   Seems more English than American.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Happy to see this one being much more malty and caramel versus a hop dominated example.   Thanks for this one Kevin!
